Description: 
It consists of 9 documents. M-Bus (Meter-Bus) is a European standard (EN 13757-2 physical and link layer, EN 13757-3 application layer) for the remote reading of gas or electricity meters. M-Bus is also usable for other types of consumption meters. The M-Bus interface is made for communication on two wire, making it very cost effective. A radio variant of M-Bus (Wireless M-Bus) is also specified in EN 13757-4. [Source: Wikipedia] The DLMS/COSEM standard suite (IEC 62056 / EN 13757-1) is the most widely accepted international standard for utility meter data exchange. This global acceptance is clearly demonstrated by the continued fast growth of the membership of the DLMS User Association and by the number of meter types certified to be DLMS / COSEM compliant. M-Bus (Meter-Bus) is a European standard for the remote reading of gas or electricity meters. M-Bus is also usable for other types of consumption meters. The M-Bus interface is made for communication on two wire, making it very cost effective. A radio variant of M-Bus (Wireless M-Bus) is also specified. The Open Metering System OMS stands for a manufacturer and utilities independent standardization for Meter-Bus based communication between utility meters (electricity, gas, water, district heat, heat cost allocators) and systems in the field of Smart meter. On the side of meter manufacturers there were mainly the members of the technical associations in Germany FIGAWA (German Association for Gas and Water) and ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronics Industry Association), but also several other internationally operating companies joined to create a bundle of common definitions and specifications based on the European Meter-Bus standard (EN 13757) as well as the Dutch NTA 8130. The outcoming results were entered in the European standardization organization and is currently being discussed as an adoption or extension of EN 13757 (available in early 2013). The OMS specification documents are written in English and available to the public for free. [Source: Wikipedia]
