This article will guide you through the installation of your M-bus device.
First of all, please check this previous article about the M-bus network. It will help you to prepare other installations.
Hardware installation :
Be sure that you are correctly wired:
- Polarity is respected
- Make sure that you have the Bus powered only by the Box/Hub (around 37V)
- All devices are on the same network configuration (baudrate/unique M-bus address/etc..)
- Wire are communication twisted pair
- Make sure that your topology respect this one
Add your equipment by using your user console.
Configure the M-bus equipment and click on "Save".
Once the equipment is created, if you don't have already a M-bus network in place you will have to configure it also,
Depending on your network speed, those advanced parameters are really important. I.E: If your network is slow, raise your Response timeout
Now, it is time to add your properties to your equipment. To do that, you should know the important/mandatory information about your M-bus equipment. Each M-bus equipment has its own M-bus property table.
Who has the information? The manufacturer (you can also ask Wattsense Support for help)
Here is the blank that you need to fill in order to configure your M-bus property.
If you want some more detail here is the M-bus documentation
Regarding the M-bus physical network, you can monitor it from here:
You can select the Baudrate of the network.
All equipment should be in the exact same baudrate to work properly, make sure it is the case in yours.
