B-Meters IWM-TX4 Wireless M-BUS radio module WDE-K50
For use with the Woltmann water meter series, model WDE-K50, the IWM-TX4 is a WMBUS radio module for the transfer of consumption data.
In addition to current consumption and a history of up to 12 previous months, it detects several sorts of attempted meter fraud, prolonged operation at maximum flow rate (Q4), and the presence of a probable water leak downstream of the meter.
Analysis of consumption using reverse flow compensation that ensures constant perfection of alignment between the counter and the counter clock.
Fraud prevention (removing the radio module, using an external magnetic field, switching the flow, and identifying a system failure). Magnetic counter tampering and removal are noted and broadcast via radio to the receiving system. An additional register that enables the calculation of the amount of water passed in reverse keeps track of the existence of reverse flow. If a timely update is desired, the loss function can be monitored at the time of reading or by the AMR system.
The module can be used for meters deployed in challenging environments thanks to IP68 protection*.
NFC connectivity enables programming and commissioning of the device using a straightforward smartphone app.
