5CTB – PRIME – Meters & More – modular meter

smart meter ZIV

5CTB is a flexible smart meter that incorporates a special sealed holster designed to host a pluggable communication module (e.g. LTE Cat 1).

It ensures a reliable data transmission, even in the most challenging powerline media conditions: eg. noisy, low impedance lines and the like.

The PLC service node integrated is automatically identified in the PLC network (plug and play).

Direct & VT-CT connected Smart Meters using DLMS/COSEM Application Data. Data transferred is encrypted using DLMS Security Suite 0.

Additionally, it includes a RS-485 port to remotely access the meter through a modem, using RF technology, and another RS-485 port for connecting an In-home Display.
