The information in this page is updated in accordance with firmware version RUT9M_R_00.07.07.

Summary

The DLMS / COSEM standard suite (IEC 62056 / EN 13757- 1) is the most widely accepted international utility meter data exchange standard. DLMS is the application layer protocol that transforms the data into messages and COSEM describes the general object model and can be used for all kinds of presentations.


This manual page provides an overview of the DLMS functionality in RUT906 devices.

Note: DLMS is additional software that can be installed from the System → Package Manager page.

Main

The Main page is used to configure DLMS physical devices and Cosem Groups.

DLMS Physical devices


Interoperable devices in DLMS categorize as server (physical device) and client. Data collection device act as a client that supports system dependent features, parameters, functions and classes requesting data from the server (physical device). In this structure, communication protocol stack is independent of application layer so both devices may communicate different media. To add a new physical device, enter an new configuration name and click the 'Add' button.

After clicking 'Add' you will be redirected to the newly added physical device's configuration page.

DLMS Physical device configuration


The DLMS Physical device configuration section is used to configure the parameters of server (physical device).

After clicking 'Add' you will be redirected to the newly added cosem group's configuration page.

DLMS Cosem group configuration


The DLMS Cosem group configuration section is used to configure the parameters of cosem groups.

Test -(interactive button) Test cosem group.

DLMS Cosem value


Cosem value is a specific value retrieved from a defined server (physical device). To add a new cosem value, enter an new configuration name and click the 'Add' button.

Connections

The Connections page is used to configure DLMS connections. You can use either TCP or serial (depending on the router) connection to establish a connection between the physical device and the router.

DLMS Connections


To add a new connection, enter an new connection name and click the 'Add' button.

DLMS Connection configuration


The DLMS Connection configuration section is used to configure the parameters of connections.

Networking rutos manual dlms dlms connections configuration.png

Field Value Description
Enable off | on; default: off Enables Cosem state.
Name string; default: previously added connection name Name of DLMS connection configuration.
Connection type TCP | Serial; default: TCP DLMS connection type.
Serial device RS232 | RS485 | USB RS232 interface; default: RS232 DLMS serial device.
Baud rate 300 | 1200 | 2400 | 4800 | 9600 | 19200 | 38400 | 57600 | 115200| 230400 | 460800 | 921600 | 1000000 | 3000000; default: 9600 Serial data transmission rate (in bits per second).
Data bits 5 | 6 | 7 |8; default: 8 Number of data bits for each character.
Stop bits 1| 2; default: 1 Stop bits sent at the end of every character allow the receiving signal hardware to detect the end of a character and to resynchronise with the character stream. Electronic devices usually use one stop bit. Two stop bits are required if slow electromechanical devices are used.
Parity Even | Odd| Mark | Space | None; default: None In serial transmission, parity is a method of detecting errors. An extra data bit is sent with each data character, arranged so that the number of 1 bits in each character, including the parity bit, is always odd or always even. If a byte is received with the wrong number of 1s, then it must have been corrupted. However, an even number of errors can pass the parity check.
  • None (N) - no parity method is used.
  • Odd (O) - the parity bit is set so that the number of "logical ones (1s)" has to be odd.
  • Even (E) - the parity bit is set so that the number of "logical ones (1s)" has to be even.
  • Space (s) - the parity bit will always be a binary 0.
  • Mark (M) - the parity bit will always be a binary 1.
Flow control None | RTS/CTS | Xon/Xoff; default: None In many circumstances a transmitter might be able to send data faster than the receiver is able to process it. To cope with this, serial lines often incorporate a "handshaking" method, usually distinguished between hardware and software handshaking.
  • RTS/CTS - hardware handshaking. RTS and CTS are turned OFF and ON from alternate ends to control data flow, for instance when a buffer is almost full.
  • Xon/Xoff - software handshaking. The Xon and Xoff characters are sent by the receiver to the sender to control when the sender will send data, i.e., these characters go in the opposite direction to the data being sent. The circuit starts in the "sending allowed" state. When the receiver's buffers approach capacity, the receiver sends the Xoff character to tell the sender to stop sending data. Later, after the receiver has emptied its buffers, it sends an Xon character to tell the sender to resume transmission.
RS485: Full Duplex off | on; default: off Enables RS485 full duplex.
IP address ip; default: none DLMS device IP address for TCP connection.
Port integer [1..65535]; default: none DLMS device IP port for TCP connection.
