European Utility Week: OMS-Group Presents 42 Interoperable Smart Meter Products

Cologne, 22.10.2018 – Gas meters, water meters, heat meters, electricity meters – metering becomes interoperable. At the European Utility Week (EUW) from the 6th to the 8th of November in Vienna, 20 manufacturers will jointly present 42 OMS-compatible products. The largest spectrum of freely combinable metering products to-date will be presented by the OMS-Group in Hall A at Stand Aj81. 


"The interoperability of meters and gateways is a decisive success factor in the rollout of smart meters," stated OMS marketing group leader, Charles van Dyck. "More OMS members than were expected will participate in our new product exhibition.”


The benefits of the open OMS specification in metering and submetering will be presented by Charles van Dyck on November 8th at 10:00 a.m. in a 20-minute lecture at Digitalisation - Theatre 2. The title of the session is "Enabling Interoperability in Meter Deployment" and will be followed by a panel discussion with all presenters.


Allmess, apator metrix, B METERS, Diehl Metering, Discovergy, EAD Systeme, Ei Electronics, Elster Honeywell, Flonidan, Ingenieurbüro Lertes, Integra, Iskraemeco, Kamstrup, Landis+Gyr, Lansen Systems, Relay, Sinapsi, Solvimus, Sontex and Weptech are participating in the product exhibition. Up to four products will be exhibited per member. Development and application experts from the OMS-Group will provide information to visitors at the booth.


The Open Metering System (OMS) communication standard developed by grid operators and the industry offers full interoperability for devices from different manufacturers of smart meters, gateways and accessories. OMS is the only Europe-wide system definition that integrates all media (electricity, gas, heat and water including submetering) in one system.


The EUW expects over 12,000 visitors and 600 exhibitors and has thus developed into the most important European trade fair for the energy sector. The OMS-Group exhibited for the first time in 2014. This year, it will welcome visitors with a product exhibition that is likely to be groundbreaking for the metering industry.
