piggy back board talks to smart meters now

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:11 pm

Hi,

after a longer time, I've finished my software works and implemented a complete wMBUS Stack (Wireless Meter Bus). The software runs very stable on RPI and the piggy-back board (now in a black case).

On the piggy board, there is a radio module (RFM22B), which can send and receive packets from all smart meters, which are following the standardized wMBUS protocol (EN 13757).

This is the link to cosm, which visualizes all of the sensor data: https://cosm.com/feeds/76490

Smart Metering:
Every smartmeter which is meassuring usage data (e.g. usage of gas, water, power) or every meter which is sending temperature data, humidity, air preassure, brightness values or even movements in a room can be detected and processed by this software.

Virtual Meters:
The software is also able to create additional virtual meter data, which is derived from physical meter data. E.g. the Power usage, meassured in Watt hours (Wh), is used to create an additional virtual meter 'Cost', which predicts the expected costs for power per year at e.g. 23Cent/kWh pricelevel, based on the current power usage.

Just for visualizing these sensor data, there is also a communcation implemented to cosm, using their API. cosm is a clound service for visualizing sensor data. @ https://cosm.com/feeds/76490 you can see the result of our two energymeters. The MBS-112 is meassuring power related values of our IT infrastructure and the second one, the MBS-121 is meassuring the temperature, air preassure, humidity and is detecting movements in our office.

Alarming system:
The movement sensor detects movement in a room and set a value to '1'. cosm is able to fire an action routine, if a meter crosses a certain value. If the movement counter is higher or equal to 1, cosm creates a twitter-message or can send an email. This is a nice feature which can be used for detection of movements in an office out of business hours.

pls. look here:

In about 2-3 weeks from now, we will have the revision 2 of the pggy-back board.

Has there been any advance/tutorials released on using the RPi as a data logger? I've been doing a project at work trying to replace basically all our data loggers (which go for >500 pound Sterling ) with a Raspberry Pi and a few peripherals, clean it up with a nice case . Would highly appreciate feedback.!

Hi DingDong,
what do you mean?
I've sold the piggy board multiple times (>250). I have a software stack, that implements the smartmeter protocol (wMbus), but it's not freely available.
It can put the data to COSM (now Xivley) https://xively.com/feeds/76490

Hi
i am interested in details about you wirelesss m-bus implementation since i'd like to read out several m-bus components (gas, eletricity, water).
is your implementation available online or for purchase?

Hi,
You might take a look on meterN too as a GUI front end 8-)

rudiratlos could you help me with my project based on OMS / wM-bus.
I'm having trouble decoding the packets, I posted my question on: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2510 ... t-decoding

There aren't many people working with wM-bus so if you could help I would be very gratefull.

Hello all

I have been trying to implement wM-Bus protocols on a raspberry to use with the ST RF TRX Spirit1. I have managed to perfectly implement the Spirit1 library but got stuck on Wm-Bus stack because right now the ST "Middleware" library is only available as binary.

Do you guys know if the piggy back board wm-bus protocol source code is available somewhere?
