Infrastructure

Elvaco's Infrastructure segment is made up of products that enable collection, processing and delivery of meter data. Our M-Bus Gateways are used to read meters and deliver meter data in a suitable format to a receiving system. M-Bus Masters extends the number of meters a Gateway is able to use and Wireless M-Bus Receivers enables the Gateway to communicate with Wireless M-Bus meters. Elvaco also offers turn-key solutions, which are assembled, connected and ready to start using at delivery. 

CMc IP Box - Elvaco box-build for Fixed Network

Elvaco's CMc IP Box is made up of our M-Bus Gateway CMe3000 and an M-Bus Master from the CMeX10-13S Series, fully assembled in a protective enclosure upon delivery. This turn-key solution acts as a communication tunnel which connects up to 256 meters with a receiving system. The Box can be equipped with our WIreless M-Bus Receiver CMeX50 to enable communication with Wireless M-Bus meters.
