Is there some one that have manage to connect to M-Bus (Meter-Bus)?
Is this type of question in the wrong category?
@fotoKrille, the category is fine. It’s just that no one may be familiar with the M-Bus! Is there an Arduino library available?
I didn’t know M-Bus, but I found this: https://github.com/gcanitezer/Mbus
What kind of project requires to use such a protocol?
if i am not wrong it is a Master/Slave Bus system for measurements of electricity (Water, gas) usage in households. (externally)
Thats is right, i think thats is odd that there is no lib for it.
But the reason why there is no Particle port yet, is that there was no call for it - as the original lack of responses to your first post shows.
After all its a protocol with limited (non-global) use and it needs extra external circuitry which limits its attractiveness for porters who don’t really need it for their own projects.
I guess there are not nearly as many people into IoT and Particle over here in Europe as there are in the US.
I hope this’ll change soon tho’
However have a look at the Arduino lib and give porting it yourself a try - it’s not that difficult, and if you get stuck, the community can usually assist.
Nice, I thought it was too mbus not meter-bus but i was wrong.
It makes me surprised when many involved in energy measurement, etc., and m-bus is quite a common standard for collecting that data. But i will try to port i over.
Hi @fotoKrille, I am also considering to collect energy transport data between 3 boilers in our multiple household heating system, using M-bus.
I am interested to hear if you have already tested something with the arduino library, ported to Particle or not…
Here is the heat power meter we are considering to integrate:
It also has a pulse output, which I can use as an alternative if M-bus turns out to be too complex for Particle…
Any success with this yet?
