AcuMesh wireless metering solution connects Energy and Power Meters communicating with RS485 wirelessly. AcuMesh is a cost-effective solution that eliminates the need for installation of communication wires. This standalone transceiver is able to connect to any device with an RS485 port running Modbus-RTU protocol, and includes a whip antenna and power supply.
What is a Mesh Network?
The AcuMesh was designed to expand the communications capabilities of meters and MODBUS devices in these applications.
The AcuMesh wireless RS485 network solution completely eliminates the need for RS485 communication wiring. Each device, or group of devices can directly connect to an AcuMesh transceiver, and the job is done. The AcuMesh transceiver transparently runs with any protocol and transmits data and commands wirelessly within a network. The AcuMesh communicates from salve to master, from sensors and meters to data acquisition servers and gateways cost effectively and with minimal challenge.
The AcuMesh transceiver works with any device with a RS485 communication port running any communication protocol. For example, the most common protocol is Modbus. AcuMesh transceiver works with Modbus master, Modbus slave and data acquisition gateway, making the entire network wirelessly connected and reliable. The same compatibility applies to any other protocol running on RS485 network.
All Accuenergy meters can directly connect with the Mesh transceiver. We also designed the transceiver into a modular form that can directly plug-in to an Acuvim II power and energy meter.
The AcuMesh transceiver provides wirelessly transmits data from energy meters and devices with RS485 communication remotely. Allowing you to conveniently gather metering data from multiple locations in a building, or multiple buildings on a campus.
AcuMesh communication works out-of-box when connected to a meter or other MODBUS device. The automatic self-healing, self-optimizing network allows transceivers to find the optimal pathway for communication where other wireless methods such as Wifi and Zigbee failed to work.
