Tatung’s SEP 2.0 Meter Bridge SMB-21 is an industry first. It extends the range of a traditional Smart Meter Home Area Network (HAN) for Multi-Dwelling Units (MDU) such as apartments or condos.Typically these locations are a distance from the Meter and represent a challenge for conventional wireless networks. In addition the SMB-21 integrates an application-layer gateway (ALG) for Smart Energy Profile (SEP) 1.x to 2.0, thus providing IP compatibility, and enhanced security. ALG complies with NIST and SGIP Cyber security requirements. SMB-21 is based on STMicroelectronics’ ST2100 system-on-a-chip (SoC) that has built-in power line communications (PLC) HomePlug AV and Green PHYTM. An ARM based-processor is also built in ST2100 for versatile smart energy applications.
SMB-21 is complaint to ANSI C12.x series standards with a bracket fitting most of installed meter socket form designations 2S and 12S. SMB-21 is quality proven, and conforms to ANSI C37 heat rise test and 72 hours 200 Amps burn-in test.
