Send data to wM-bus gateway?


(Tibbe) #1

Hi,
I have a set of LoRa nodes with a SX1301 Gateway and I have costumers requiring wireless M-Bus communication. I can see that SX1301 support this, but I can’t find any info on how to implement it. I just need to send some data to a wM-bus gateway on the 868MHz band and right now I am using the https://github.com/Lora-net/lora_gateway software.

Would it work by using the FSK modulaiton?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Thibault

In the 1st instance if looking at WMBus over LoRa/LoRaWAN I would suggest you contact my old friends at Amiho Technology in Cambridge UK (believe they have recently been bought out by inVMA) - speak to Steve Clarke if you can. I know they have done a lot or work and product dev in this area over the last 3-5 years with software and radio modules/modems for LoRa available. I would also suggest you reach out to the guys at iMST who I recall have good experience with WMBus and of course are experts in the LoRa area, not sure if they have done work on WMBus over LoRa/LoRaWAN or WMBus/LoRa bridging but if you contact Heinz or the guys on the LoRa/Wireless team am sure they will point you in the right direction…

Of course folk on the forum may have other suggestions - people like Jose @jmarcelino Jak @kersing and Rob @BoRRoZ are often fonts of such knowledge or know contacts :wink:
