The iOKE868 LoRaWAN® optical reading head unit leverages the long range and low power consumption of LoRa® to provide real-time data monitoring of energy consumption and secure connectivity to the 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 the 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.
