Remote Valve Operation
The remote functionality of the gas module and back officesystem enables the operation of remote disconnect or enabling of the gas meter valve, user intervention is required to open the valve. The valve can be opened or closed by performing a simple operational command using the back office software, the command is sent via SMS to the 5236 electricity meter which in turn sends the command to the gas meter via the M Bus link (wired or wireless).
In event of a tamper being detected at the gas meter communication with the 5236 electricity meter allows alerts
to be sent to the back office system to indicate when a tamper has been detected at the gas meter.
The gas meter is fitted with a temperature measuring device and maintains both an unconverted and a temperature converted register.
Remote Meter Reading
Gas usage data can be sent to the back office system using M Bus commands. The user can define a scheduled period where the values can be returned to the system, or an adhoc request can be performed to return the latest data readings. The meter readings can also be used to record hourly profiling.
The installation process and association with the electricity meter follow the standard M Bus discovery process. Other installation functions are available in a service menu controlled by PIN entry. The wireless gas meter is bound to the M Bus to M Bus wireless convertor via the service menu. The installation can be prepared using the purge function to enable priming of the network.
