Industry’s First Wi-SUN approved Wireless Devices for Home Energy Management System and Smart meter
As smart meters and home energy management systems finding their way into the mainstream, it will be necessary for such devices to communicate with each other by means of wireless communication in order to obtain a wide range of data which includes total power consumption of the household. Global Standard for such wireless Smart Utility Networks is Wi-SUN Profile for ECHONET Lite specified by Wi-SUN Alliance.
Toshiba has become the first in the industry to have its devices certified by this standard. The two devices are 920MHz band wireless adaptor and home gateway. Inserting Toshiba’s 920MHz band wireless USB dongle into TLT’s home gateway will enable the data communication between smart meters and HEMS (Home Energy Management System).
