LoRaWAN®

Data transmission via the Internet of Things (IoT) with LoRaWAN®

The LoRaWAN® radio system from ZENNER enables data to be transmitted over long distances in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

LoRaWAN® IoT solutions from ZENNER

LoRaWAN® is an international, open radio standard, which is continually being developed by the LoRa AllianceTM. By using a special modulation procedure (Chirp Spread Spectrum), very long ranges and excellent building penetration can be achieved with LoRaWAN®.

Bidirectional communication, a high level of security through modern encryption technologies and low energy demands make LoRaWAN® the perfect technology for the remote reading of water, heat and cooling energy meters and gas meters. Applications in the fields of Smart Building or Smart City can be implemented with LoRaWAN®.

Your benefits of LoRaWAN® solutions include:

  • Remote reading of meters and sensors
  • Allocation and billing of consumption data
  • Visualisation of consumption data and energy monitoring
  • Implementation of “EED Informative Billing”
  • Building management services
  • Use of the LoRaWAN® network for added value services in Smart Metering, Smart Building or Smart City applications

Future-proof measurement technology with LoRaWAN®

LoRaWAN® enables you to read data from water, heat and cooling energy and gas meters via a stationary radio system. ZENNER offers you a full range of LoRaWAN®-capable measurement technology and innovative radio modules for all types of meters.

The required network coverage can be cost-effectively deployed through the installation of LoRaWAN® gateways.

Wireless M-Bus

A flexible solution for meter data collection

The flexible solution for the remote readout of water, heat and cooling, electricity and gas meters by stationary network or walk and drive-by solutions.

A wireless solution for housing and commercial applications 

The wireless M-Bus system from ZENNER allows you to conveniently read all types of meters through a fixed network, or without a fixed network using walk or drive-by procedures. 

All meters independently transmit encrypted data at predetermined intervals, which can be collected at a range of frequencies by the fixed, or non-fixed networks for use in energy or billing applications.  

This flexible solution is based on the European OMS (Open Metering System) standard allowing any OMS-capable meter from different manufacturers to be integrated into the system.  

Your options with wireless M-Bus systems include: 

  • Reading of all types of meters 
  • No requirement for fixed networks 
  • Validation and billing of consumption data  
  • Online transmission of measuring data  
  • Visualisation of consumption data and energy monitoring 
  • Implementation of “EED Informative Billing” 
  • Reading of meters in difficult to access locations 

M-Bus

The ideal modern, standardised reading solution 

The intelligent solution for the automated and wired remote readout of water, heat and cooling, electricity and gas meters. 

M-Bus solutions system and building technologies  

M-Bus enable you to perform the remote reading of water, heat and cooling meters, electricity and gas meters, including on a high frequency basis without impacting on battery life.  

The modern gateways and level converters from ZENNER transmit data to your chosen systems and ensure that the remote reading of a large number of meters is performed in an efficient and cost-effective manner. 

ZENNER offers a wide range of products to connect your meters to an intelligent reading system with transmissions according to M-Bus standards (DIN EN 1434). 

Your options with M-Bus systems include: 

  • Reading of all types of meters 
  • High frequency data collection intervals 
  • Validation and billing of consumption data  
  • Online transmission of measuring data  
  • Visualisation of consumption data and energy monitoring 
  • Implementation of “EED Informative Billing”
