RS-485-PLC Extender

We all have been faced with this problem: An energy meter is located on the lower basement level with no communication options and difficult installation conditions for setting up a remote communication unit?

In this case, it is possible to install the EasyGateway® in a zone where mobile communication is unrestrictedly available, for example. The RS485-PLC-Extender can bridge the distance between the meter and the communication gateway using the power grid – quickly, unproblematically and without the need to install cables.
