New iMEGA version 2.1 is now available
July 05, 2007
If an energy supplier intends to read meters via a TCP/IP network (GPRS) and the meters operate with dynamic IP addresses, a gateway (iMEGA Software) is required. The entire process how a meter is supposed to communicate with iMEGA has been standardised in a DIN standard (43863-4).
The new iMEGA software from meter2cash and Landis+Gyr will support this DIN standard as well as the proprietary standard of the existing L+G communication units (CU’s).
The concept is presented in the figure below. The new iMEGA kernel communicates with the communication units according to the new DIN standard. It is, however, still possible to continue reading already installed CU’s via a Front End service with the new iMEGA software.
