The iOKE868 Smart Metering Kit compliant with LoRaWAN® leverages the long range and low power of LoRa® to provide real-time data monitoring of energy consumption and secure connectivity to a LoRaWAN® IoT network. It is compatible with most modern smart meters (compliant with IEC62056-21 and SML messages)
The optical reading unit iO881A can be attached magnetically to the smart meter to read out the infrared interface, extract the desired values and transfer those to a LoRaWAN® network with a period defined by the user.
The external antenna provides a maximum flexibility during installation in difficult RF environments. The user-friendly configuration tool offers an easy way to change the radio, calendar and filter settings. All these advantages result in a far more comprehensive and detailed feedback on energy consumption and enable a significant reduction of operational costs.
The configuration can be managed Over-The-Air via LoRa® messages or via wired serial interface (Windows PC tool).
