manufacture of RF modules, to allow consumers to view real-time energy information from
The cooperation has resulted in IHDs being able to receive real-time consumption data from
electricity, gas, heat and water meters over multiple communication protocols. Fully working
IHDs for 868 MHz and 169 MHz Wireless M-Bus will be demonstrated at Metering Europe in
Amsterdam, October 4-6.
Radiocrafts participates actively in the European standardization work and embeds protocols
like Wireless M-Bus, ZigBee and KNX RF in high performance, high quality RF modules. When
integrated in the new range of Current Cost IHD’s, energy consumption and other useful
information including messages from the utility companies can be visualized and easily read,
with an option for access via smart phones or mobile browsers. This means that users can view
their data wherever they are, leading them to make informed choices which reduce overall
home energy consumption.
