NXP offers low-power, sub-1 GHz wireless solutions for use in a wide range of applications. These high-performance, bi-directional sub-1 GHz radios are capable of operating over a wide frequency range including 315, 433, 470, 868, 915, 928 and 960 MHz in the license free industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) frequency bands.Wireless Meter-Bus
NXP is a leader in MCUs and communication ICs for metering applications. ZigBee Smart Energy and Wireless Meter-Bus (M-Bus) are becoming key standards for connecting the meters to the grid and to the home energy management system.More Less
Wireless M-Bus is a European Standard for meter-reading applications initially defined for the 868 MHz frequency band and now extends to other frequency bands as well. Wireless M-Bus defines the bi-directional communications between the meters (gas, water and electricity) and the data concentrators.
Based on EN13757-4, Wireless M-Bus supports two types of readout systems – a walk-by/drive-by method requiring more frequent transmission addressed by the T mode and the networked method with R and S modes.
Other possible in-home applications for electronic systems using Wireless M-Bus are alarm systems, flexible illumination installations and heating controlling.
