Within the context of roll-out projects, in the field of smart metering, more and more devices are connected to gateways via wireless M-Bus. The continuous accessibility and a reliable data transmission represent important success factors here.
Until now, many wireless M-Bus installations did not measure how the signal level and data transfer behaved. Often times, even a simple check is not undertaken, to determine whether installed devices transmit at all or if configuration errors are present. As a result installations often have to be aborted or carried out several times until the desired result is achieved.
Therefore a detailed testing of the installed devices is recommended, in order to obtain valid data and select the correct components for the installation.
