ZigBee Optical Interface for Energy Meter

  • Led pulse counter of electricity and energy meter settable from 1 to 99 Wh/pulse
  • It manages electricity and energy meter in Wh
  • Digital input for remote alarms
  • Compatible with ENEL energy meter (single phase/three phase); other European energy meters under development


ZigBee Optical interface device for Energy Meter

The ZR-TIDCI-OPT1-EM is a ZB-Connection range device. It counts, memorizes and transmit to a 4-noks ZB-Connection Gateway the optical pulses generated from a ENEL meter that correspond to a certain energy measured by the latter. It is also provided with a digital generic input that can be used to transfer in an alarm status coming from an external source (with clean contact).

The counts can be scheduled and are sent on a regular basis toward a ZB-Connection range Gateway.
The device has to be continuously supplied with 24Vcc/24Vca (power supply included); in this way it can also be used as a repeater and work as a “father” device for battery supplied sensors of the same range.
