Digital Gas Meter

Post by emme » Saturday 25 March 2017 12:16

Ciao,

My gas company has just changed my gas meter form to a bran d new Aem G4EUS... fully digital meter :cry:

I used to monitor gas consumption with my northq 9021 that now looks outdated (and unable to repair to the zWave network :( )
do you know if its possible to hook a reed sensor or something else to this meter?

ciao
M

p.s.
here's the counter

These two circles in a circle is an optical port.

Does one of them blink when gas is being used?

Then unfortunately you need to send data to port (one of these are photodiode receiver) for it to respond.
Your only option to find out the spec document on the meter and check what protocol this port uses (and maybe if ready-made data adapter is available).

Thanks a lot for your reply!
while I'm seeking for the tech manual... I see in the user manual that it should have a radio interface on 169Mhz DLMS compatible... (M-Bus)

uh.. is there anyone confident with this?! :P :P
or.. willing to experiment with me somwthing like this?! :P
