Radio Modems Wireless M-Bus AMR - User guide version V1.6
1.Introduction to Radio modem AMR
The Wireless M-Bus radio modems AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) from Adeunis RF range allow you to create an independent ecosystem to
ensure the emission, transport and collection of consumption index using Wireless M-Bus protocol. This range is made of three products, all
available in several version (see ¶ Informations).
•
•
•
Wireless M-Bus transmitter AMR : allows to transmit data (index) from water & gas meters.
Wireless M-Bus repeater AMR : allows to repeat Wireless M-Bus frames and extend the range over several kilometers.
Wireless M-Bus receiver AMR : allows to receive consumption data from Wireless M-Bus transmitters AMR or Wireless M-Bus repeater
AMR and transit them to any collection device and / or operating data with a RS232 or RS485 serial port.
1.1. Operation Modes
The products of the Adeunis-RF AMR range can adapt to all types of network topologies and all modes of Automatic Meter Reading.
Pedestrian or vehicle modes : a transmission period of 10s allows to retrieve information from the entire meter fleet on a receptor such as
mobile PC, Tablet, Smartphone or industrial PDA.
This information will be available for a vehicle rolling up about 30 to 50 km / h according to the configuration of the installation.
Fixed network mode : the receiver is permanently on the site and a data transmission every 10 minutes or 12 hours is more than enough for
most applications, the specific historical (by time slot of 30 minutes) of consumption being sent every 12 hours. That said, the 10s configuration
program can be used with a fixed network in order to obtain a very precise historical consumption on the receiver.
1.2. Advantage of the AMR solution of Adeunis RF
The AMR solution of Adeunis RF is 100% compatible with the Wireless M-Bus (EN13757-3 and EN13757-4) standard. It’s an open standard
where all the information needed to decode frames are present in the header of the frame itself, so no hidden information or impossible to
interpret.
In the frame, you will find information: Manufacturer, serial number, meter type, size of the index and the index itself.
This is absolutely essential as a receiver / collector will have to deal with several different meters (water, gas, electricity, energy, ...) coming from
several places (appartments, houses).
The Wireless M-Bus radio modems AMR from Adeunis RF fit most meters on the market. It automatically adjusts Wireless M-Bus frame settings
and format of the index to the selected meter and sensor.
The Wireless M-Bus module of Adeunis RF, integrated in a product receiver of a portable or fixed (for example, Receiver AMR, a box or GPRS /
ADSL collector), allows obviously to receive all information from Radio modems AMR.
2.Wireless M-Bus Transmitter AMR
•
•
•
•
•
•
The connection the the meters is simple via a system compatible with pulse interface. The configuration is intuitive via mechanical switches.
Two meters can be supported by a single transmitter AMR from Adeunis RF, allowing a significant reduction of costs of implementation and
deployment.
This version features a application to adjust the data transmission cycle, manage a history of consumption, to inform the leaks and alert on
fraud.
This document contains key recommendations for an optimal implementation of AMR transmitters from ADEUNIS RF. Compliance with
these recommendations will help you get a communication distance advertised by the manufacturer depending on the model chosen.
These products are 100% compatible with European Wireless M-Bus protocol (EN13757-4 and EN13757-3), and use the T1 mode at a
frequency of 868.950MHz.
These products use a lithium battery to ensure a long product life more than 12 years under standard conditions of use.
Note: By default, the radio modems AMR use T1 mode (868.950MHz). If you want to use another mode (S1, R1) thank you for contacting us Page 9 of 23
Radio Modems Wireless M-Bus AMR - User guide version V1.6
2.1. The alert modes
2.1.1 Consumptions alert
In the case of overconsumption, an alert is sent by radio to indicate an abnormality.
This avoids endless litigation with the subscriber, and can rapidly stop the problem.
Similarly, a very low consumption rate (but permanent), probably indicates a leak. In this case an alert is also sent.
2.1.2 Fraud alert
In case of the measuring cable failure, removal of the sensor or of a permanent magnetic field on the consumption sensor, an alert is sent by
radio to the receiver.

2.2.4 Standard frame format
Periodic frames Wireless M-Bus issued by AMR modems are compliant with EN13757-4 and EN13757-3, and can be received by any Wireless
M-Bus receiver (interoperability).
All necessary information are present in the RF frame.
The end of the serial number of radio modems AMR, in each RF frame, indicate the type of counter: 07 for water and 03 for gas.
The value of the index, according to the standard Wireless M-Bus is indicated in the field DATA VARIABLE DATA BLOCK Field (see doc EN137573).
For all meter types, the size of the index (without offset) is always of the form 32-bit binary / hex according to the standard, with a unit volume
of 0.1 liter for water meter and 0.1 dm3 for gas meters.

2.3.3 Startup of the Radio modem AMR
The actual start of the product is automatically 10 seconds after connecting wire fraud, and any subsequent changes on switches will not have
any effect. (Be careful though of malfunctions caused by improper positioning of switch1 on the type of sensor connected).
The green LED will flash for 30 seconds, turn ON 1 second and OFF 1 second to indicate the correct startup of the counting function.
The same scenario will happen again if you subsequently connect the 2nd counter.
When installing sensors on the meters, the value of the mechanical index is never zero (even with brand new meters because they are always
tested through a few dozen rotations on a test bench); this difference is not supported by the modem AMR and must therefore treat offset
through the receiving tool.
Page 16 of 23
Radio Modems Wireless M-Bus AMR - User guide version V1.6
Note: For gas meters, it may be that the modem AMR starts with a non-zero value (related to the principle of magnetic detection). Be sure to
check the offset value after startup. if an offset correction must be applied, it must be done on the collector (receiever side). It’s not possible to
and apply a coorection on the Radio Modem AMR.
2.4. Modes
2.4.1 Operating mode
In run mode, the green LED flashes briefly every 4 seconds.
Similarly, it also flashes briefly when sending RF frame, so all 10s, 12 or 10 minutes depending on the configuration.
In addition to these standard frames and receivable by other equipment Wireless M-Bus Other T1 mode, frames of historical consumption on the
day, week, month, year in court, as well as the last 3 years are émisses every 12 hours.
Our support service is at your disposal for any information on the implementation of this function and the associated frame format.
2.4.2 Alarm mode
Radio Modems AMR are equipped, according to the sensor configurations, of systems for detecting fraud.
•
On Itron Cyble 5 wire and Sappel 3 and 4 wire water versions, a cable break detection is performed every 4 seconds, and indicates a temporary fraud in the radio frame if the fraud happened only one time, and indicates permanent fraud if it has been viewed 2 times or more.
•
On Itron Gallus gas versions a cable cut detection is present.
•
On Elster gas versions, in addition of the cable break detection, you’ll find a fraud detection by magnetic field.
2.5. Sensor(s) installation on meter

3.2. Implementation of Wireless M-Bus repeater AMR
3.2.1 Wireless M-Bus repeater AMR (main)
The repeater (main version) is factory configured in T1 mode (modes S1 and R1 are available on request).
For the implementation, simply connect the AC adapter, check that the operation LED power (located under the housing) is active, and the
repeater will repeat any frames RF mode concerned about 5 seconds after receipt of the initial frame.
At power up, the green LED will flash for 10/15 seconds alternately 1 second ON and 1 second OFF to indicate the correct startup of the repeat
function.
We can cascade several repeaters to extend the transmission distance.
Be careful though not to install more than 2 repeaters in the same «zone» of radio coverage as this will cause an excess of RF frame.
