Meter Connectivity Modules

Elvaco offers meter connectivity modules for heat and electricity meters. These are used with a specific type of meter to collect data and deliver in structured meter data reports to a receiving system, or to enable a meter to communicate by M-Bus/Wireless M-Bus.

 

CMeX20w - External MCM for ABB B21/B23/B24

CMeX20w is an external meter connectivity module used to collect data from an ABB B21/B23/B24 electricity meter and deliver it to a receiving system by Wireless M-Bus. The product communicates with the ABB meter by IR and will initiate collection of data immediately after start-up. It has a modular design, which makes it easy to extend an existing installation if needs are changing.
