How Discovergy gas smart metering works

Smart metering for gas works with Discovergy in three very easy steps:


Measuring of data

Our gas meters for customers with a standard load profile record the data reliably and in real time.

Gas meter: transmitting data

Transmitting data

Once the data has been recorded, it is forwarded by the communication module, the Smart Meter Gateway Meteroit, to the Discovergy server infrastructure - encrypted and secure.

Gas Meter: Data Analysis

Analysis of the data

The transmitted data is processed by intelligent analysis tools. The real-time energy data is visualized on the web Platform and on the mobile app.

Gas Meter 3 - SLP diaphragm gas meter with absolute Encoder AE3

SLP diaphragm gas meter with Absolute Encoder AE3

Our gas meter is a so-called diaphragm gas meter with the Absolute Encoder AE3. This mechanical gas meter determines the gas volume flow by displacement measurement - according to a proven patent by Emil Haas from 1878.

The AE3 Absolute Encoder combines the positive characteristics of a mechanical and an electronic meter in a meaningful way: In an optoelectronic scanning process, the position of the seven individual number rollers of the mechanical meter movement is basically scanned with five photoelectric sensors - without physical contact.

A controller determines the exact position of each individual number roll and transmits the absolute counter reading to the additional communication module (Plug & Play). Only the eighth, least significant roller is not scanned. Thanks to the plug-in connection, it is easy to attach the communication module - and it ensures immediate function.

The data is continuously transmitted to the connected communication modules via a digital interface. In contrast to the usual pulse transmission, this ensures permanent transmission reliability.

Data communication to the Smart Meter Gateway Meteroit is handled by a wired M-Bus solution using an Ethernet port. The encrypted data is stored and transmitted via the gateway.

The scope of delivery for the Discovergy Gas Smart Meter includes: the mechanical diaphragm gas meter with Absolute Encoder AE3, the necessary fastening material, the meter's communication connection via wired M-Bus and the Meteroit Smart Meter Gateway with Ethernet port.

Gas Meter - 6 - Legal requirements

Legal requirements

The installation of smart gas meters by Discovergy is based strictly on all legal requirements. One such requirement states that new gas metering equipment may only be installed if it can be securely connected to a Smart Meter Gateway. According to the Metering Point Operating Act, such gas meters should be able to be integrated into so-called smart metering systems via an interface or an adapter.

For standard load profile customers (SLP customers), this requirement already applies from 01.01.2017. Newly installed gas meters must therefore be smart-meter-capable and be able to be connected to a Smart Meter Gateway.

For registering power measurement customers (RLM end users) this requirement applies from 01.01.2024, till then there exists a transitional period during which current measuring equipment may still be installed. However, it is worthwhile for your company to make the change at an early stage in order to benefit from the advantages - in particular the energy transparency - now.
