Connecting Saia Burgess M-Bus meters to a LAN (SNMP, Modbus/TCP)

This Case study shows how to connect Saia Burgess M-Bus electricity meters to the Ethernet. You can read values remotely using SNMP or Modbus/TCP protocols. Web interface, email reporting and alarming is available. Tested with Saia Burgess ALD1D5FM one phase meter and ALE3D5FM three phase meter. HWg-PWR 25 smart gateway is used to convert M-Bus to LAN.

Features: 
  • Saia Burgess M-Bus power meters can be mixed with other M-Bus meters (including water meters, gas meters, etc.)
  • Up to 3 or 12 or 25 M-Bus meters can be connected to a single HWg-PWR 3/12/25 smart ethernet gateway.
  • HWg-PWR can be used as a stand-alone solution. HWg-PWR periodically sends reports for given periods. Measured values are stored for later analysis or billing.
  • You can use Saia Burgess ALD1D5FM (one phase) or ALE3D5FM (three phase) electricity meters, or any other M-Bus meter.
OBSOLETE_Situations: 
  • Connecting Saia Burgess ALD1D5FM or ALE3D5FM M-Bus meters to a LAN
  • Reading values remotely over Modbus/TCP (SCADA systems) or SNMP monitoring systems
  • Electricity consumption monitoring over Internet
  • Detailed electricity monitoring / metering / billing
  • Complex monitoring and metering systems (electricity, heat, water, gas...)
  • Energy consumption monitoring with M-Bus to Ethernet conversion
  • Ethernet power meter systems with SNMP or Modbus/TCP output
OBSOLETE_Solution/Benefits: 
  • Standalone solution (internal logger available)
  • Sends an alarm in the event of a failure or a value out of a specified range (E-mail, SNMP Trap, SMS)
  • Compatible with any 3rd party M-Bus meters
  • Converts the consumption (e.g. from [kWh] to [€]) without a computer or additional software
  • Many M2M protocols: SNMP, ModbusTCP, XML (HTTP)
  • Software: PDMS + XML overview to MS Excel
