Accuenergy Launches AcuMesh Wireless RS485
We’re excited to announce the new AcuMesh RS485 wireless metering system is now available from Accuenergy. This system is designed to connect a variety of RS485 enabled meters,sensors, gateways and more wirelessly over an extended distance of up to 4 miles.
The AcuMesh is the ideal solution for installations where enabling communications with RS485 devices would involve costly re-wiring. The AcuMesh allows for easy integration of wireless communications through the implementation of our AcuMesh standalone transceivers, or AXM-Mesh modules where Accuenergy power meters are currently being used.Applications Include: Retrofit metering in existing buildings, campus metering, commercial building metering, multi-tenant billing and submetering, renewable energy-array string and inverter metering, industrial metering, and data acquisition.
