Some people talk about IoT. My customer do IoT. In this case, it is an IoT device in metering again. The M-Bus Master Unit GSS-134 of Pikkerton is on Quectel GSM module M66 and got a replaceable battery pack. It can run easily without longer installation effort.
M-Bus master interfaces:
- M-Bus Master Unit, 20 Standard Loads
- 4x PT1000 Temperature Sensor Cables, external
- 2x Pulse Counter / Dry Contact Monitoring
For challenging RF environments, an antenna cable can be connected to the RP-SMA connector instead of the stubby helical antenna. With 5600 mAh standard capacity, safe and reliable operation is ensured for several years. The device is highly optimized for ultra-low power operation. The normal power consumption is only a few micro amps. Unused peripherals and device parts are switched off consequently.
The M-Bus master GSS-134 is as many other designs prepared to run on NB-IoT later on.
