FM232ir – Infrared IoT sensor for German electricity meters (Local LoRa)
FM232ir is an IoT sensor for monitoring the electricity consumption (electric power) of all types of buildings. It has been specially designed for meters with infrared communication ports (mME German meters with SML protocol), but can also be used with old Ferraris meters. It is easy to install on the existing main electricity meter. It connects locally to an F-Link micro-bridge (not included) through a specific local Lora radio protocol and sends the electricity curve at regular intervals.
IoT LoRa sensor for electricity consumption monitoring with a 1-minute or 15-minutes time step (depending on the chosen option). The sensor consists of an optical reading head (to be installed on the existing main electricity meter) and a radio box (also including batteries).
The sensor only transmits messages to an F-Link micro-bridge (to be purchased separately). Up to 10 sensors can be registered on a single F-Link. Data is forwarded by the F-Link to Fludia data collect server where they can be retrieved through an API (or consulted and downloaded manually from the dashboard).
