Electricity Meter

Electricity meter will be the first central power meter to be configured as a smart meter

In addition to the gas meter, the electricity meter will be the first central power meter to be configured as a smart meter as soon as possible, thus allowing permanent communication with the energy supplier. Background information can be found on the main page (markets - metering).

Gas Meter

Gas Meter will be part of the Smart Grid infrastruccture and Intelligent Home

In addition to the electricity meter, the gas meter will be the first central power meter to be configured as a smart meter as soon as possible, thus allowing permanent communication with the gas supplier. Background information can be found on the main page (markets - metering).

Heat Meter

Heat Meters are core part of any Intelligent Home Infrastructure

In the longer term, heat meters within the framework of the district heating supply should also be implemented as smart meters, thus allowing permanent communication with the heat supplier. Background information can be found on the main page (markets - metering).

Water Meter

Water Meter will be state of the art low power design with LPRF communication allowing outdoor mounting

In the longer term, water meters should also be implemented as smart meters, thus allowing permanent communication with the heat suppliers. Background information can be found on the main page (markets - metering).

MUC and SMGW

A MUC or SMGW box serves as a data gateway between the energy supplier and the customer

MUC stands for ‘Multi-Utility Communication’ whereby a MUC box, which is located in the appropriate housing unit, in principle represents a central read-out box with integrated outward data gateway. Under www.vde.com/de/fnn/arbeitsgebiete/messwesen/seiten/muc.aspx, the VDE has a specification document on the subject of MUC-boxes that can be downloaded, and which will serve as a co-ordinated working basis for the development of a communication module for meter manufacturers, meter mounting board manufacturers, and users. SMGW stands for Smart Meter Gate Way.
