Cellular Solutions for Smart Meter – 450 MHz Modules from Rutronik & Telit

  Knowledge

Interference-free connection to the electricity meter: With cellular standards such as 2G/GSM it is hardly possible to communicate with devices in deep indoor areas. The ME310G1-W2 LTE-M/NB-IoT module from Telit uses the 450MHz frequency band which overcomes this lack of range. So even the most distant meter in the basement still receives a signal. The module is available at www.rutronik24.de.
