REMOTE READING OF TAX INSTRUMENTS

М-bus (Meter-bus) is a new European standard for remote reading of tax instruments, and different types of sensors. The reading is accomplished in several different methods - from direct reading of current indication of the instruments to fully remote reading of all devices in the net by GPRS technology. The use of M-bus interface allows fully electronic reading of data with all the benefits - (creation of databases for each user and making of detailed reports; making of statistical reports for optimization; connection of all instruments in one unified net by two-wire cable with unique address for each device on the net; fast reading of data from tax devices (approximately reading time for 250 units is less than 5min.), avoiding the subjective errors; decreasing expenses of the supplier and users of communal services; avoiding of trespassing in private territory by employees of the supplier; allows instruments to be placed in hard-to-reach places for human readability; the reading can be done in very small intervals, saving the security and confidentiality of read data, practically avoiding the manipulation on purpose of the tax instruments and measured data.

Gineers Ltd. is a registered manufacturer of M-Bus device (EN1434) by The flag Association Limited.
