Reading values on Elster A1800

Hi, I'm working with an Elster A1800 and I need to get meter information like voltaje, current, power but I don’t know if with that meter I can do this, or only I can get general information like logical name, metering points IDs, because with the DLMS Director program only show me the values on the picture, if somebody can help me I really thank you.

Hi,

First you should check those values under Register group.
Current, Voltage, etc. are usually there.

If they are not, I can check is your meter returning this data.

Can you read your meter and send log file to me?
You can get log selecting "View Log" under Tools menu.
My contact information you will find here:

Hi Pablo,

We parsed the log file that you sent. There are only 16 objects and all are shown on GXDLMSDirector.

There are couple of options.
1. Elster supports only partly DLMS protocol. It supports only objects what you see at the moment with GXDLMSDirector.

2. You must use higger authentication and password to connect to the meter to see registers.

Try to change authentication to Low, Client ID to 11 and use password.

I hope this helps you,

BR,

Mikko

Hi Mikko:
I am new to GURUX software
Could you tell me what values to place on properties, so I can communicate with an A1800.
I am using a media converter (TCP to Serial)
With the Metercat, I communicate well.
Many greetings
Carlos

Hi,

Select "Elster Electricity LLC" as manufacturer. Then select "Net" to media and update right IP address and port number.

BR,

Mikko

Hello Mikko:

Hello Mikko:
Thank you very much for your answer. Now I find myself in the same situation as ipaao7. That is expressed in the beginning. I find myself looking for the method to read the password level 1 but I am not having luck. Would you know how?
regards
Carlos

Hi,

You should ask password from the meter vendor or owner. Password is usually changed.

BR,

Mikko

Hello:

Hello:
After a telephone consultation with personnel of Elster Argentina, I informed that the energy meters are not of factory, with the firmware DLMS / COSEM. For this I should expressly request this characteristic at the time the acquisition is made.
So I could not interrogate the A1800 computer with GURUX software. My big question is because I have the same screen as ipaa07, if the A1800 does not have built-in DLMS?
Many greetings
Carlos

Hi,

Our clients are reading Elster A1800 with DLMS/COSEM.
I find out that DLMS part is optional in Elster A1800 meters.
You can find more info here:
