Duo - Modbus & EDMI Cmd Line Translator - MD-SMP
A “plug and play” device that enables customers to intergrate their meter systems with building management systems by converting the second communications port of EDMI "ATLAS" series meters EDMI Command-Line output to 2-Wire MODBUS RTU. This allows a Building Management Systems (BMS) and Netstream, or an Energy Management Stsrem (EMS), to concurrently access the same EDMI Atlas Meter for real-time reporting of meter parameters.
The embedded processor in the Modbus Duo talks directly to the meter and automatically adopts the last two digits of the meter serial number as the device Modbus address as well as interrogating the meter to allow acces to the TOU resgisters and load-profile details. The Modbus address can also be pre-programmed in factory to customer requirements if necessary.
This device has been spectaculary successful with large corporate clients who want to be able to integrate their BMS/EMS with their billing meters as the first communications port remains as an EDMI Command-Line port (2-wire RS485).
Note: requires EDMI "Atlas" meters with a Modem Power supply at the RJ45 port.
