GOERLITZ AG has launched a common meter driver system that can use the same meter driver on different platforms. The system supports the Skalar meter data modem and the mobile data collection system. The new technology makes the implementation of new meters to these systems easy and cost effective, because the same driver can be used in different applications.

The concept is designed for driver integration of electricity and gas meters using a serial interface. Today’s meters typically have individual interface software and data formats, and drivers are necessary to communicate with them. GOERLITZ has now introduced interoperable interpreter software to their MDE and Skalar systems so that drivers being written for one of these systems can easily be used in the other without changes.
