The Elster gas meter uses an Absolute ENCODER register which allows direct read out of the meter readings by the KNX module. This greatly facilitates meter replacement as the meter reading and the serial number are read out automatically. The Lingg&Janke KNX module can be directly plugged on to the Elster gas meter.
The available parameters allow you to define the following outputs:
- Meter value (m³)
- High-resolution meter value (10 l)
- Meter status
- Serial number and meter number
- Relative up counter Meter value / Reset
- Relative down counter Meter value / Reset / Zero
- Output 15min / 60min difference (m³)
- Due date billing Date / Set
Storage of Consumption Data
The integrated KNX data logger stores the data at 15 minute intervals over a period of one year. The data can be read out directly via the NK-FW network coupler using a standard Internet browser. By using FTP, you can also download the stored data from the KNX/EIB module for further processing, for example with MS Excel or Flash / Silverlight. The application program offers 15 data points for further processing in the KNX/EIB bus. The individual data can be transmitted cyclically to the KNX bus.
