Ethernet Metering Interface Controller for 20 specified M-Bus meters (includes RS232 cable and'DIN rail mounting kit): Data Sheet TA201146
Ethernet Metering Interface Controller
The EMIC (Ethernet Metering Interface Controller) provides an interface for up to 8, 16 or 32 energy meters. It connects to the Trend system using Ethernet, and to the meters using RS485, MODBUS. It sits on the Trend internetwork, and takes a Lan for its own use, each meter being represented by an outstation on that Lan. Data from each meter is collected using the RS485 bus and stored in the EMIC within the relevant outstation. Each meter can be chosen from a range of meters from various suppliers including the Trend EM-MPO/SIRIO and /STAR3. It can be configured using an integral web server
Building Energy Management Systems (or BEMS) are computer-based systems that help to manage, control and monitor building technical services (HVAC, lighting etc.) and the energy consumption of devices used by the building. They provide the information and the tools that building managers need both to understand the energy usage of their buildings and to control and improve their buildings’ energy performance.
