Current Cost partners with Radiocrafts to supply IHD’s for Smart Meters

Current Cost, the leading global manufacturer of In House Displays (IHD) and home energy
monitors, has collaborated with Radiocrafts, respected specialists and leaders in design and
manufacture of RF modules, to allow consumers to view real-time energy information from
Smart Meters.

The cooperation has resulted in IHDs being able to receive real-time consumption data from
electricity, gas, heat and water meters over multiple communication protocols. Fully working
IHDs for 868 MHz and 169 MHz Wireless M-Bus will be demonstrated at Metering Europe in
Amsterdam, October 4-6.

Radiocrafts participates actively in the European standardization work and embeds protocols
like Wireless M-Bus, ZigBee and KNX RF in high performance, high quality RF modules. When
integrated in the new range of Current Cost IHD’s, energy consumption and other useful
information including messages from the utility companies can be visualized and easily read,
with an option for access via smart phones or mobile browsers. This means that users can view
their data wherever they are, leading them to make informed choices which reduce overall
home energy consumption.

TinyMesh RF modules with self-configuring mesh protocol for ISM bands

Radiocrafts AS introduces a new, powerful mesh network protocol operating in all sub-1 GHz and 2.4 GHz license free ISM bands. TinyMesh networks are self forming and self healing without external interaction. Due to the mesh network redundancy, TinyMesh offers superior range and reliability, with no limitations in number of gateways or addressable nodes. Compared to other mesh protocols, TinyMesh gives the shortest time to market due to its ease of use and self-configuring capabilities. TinyMesh supports transparent data communication, as well as digital I/O control, analogue inputs and
PWM outputs. Among several unique features, TinyMesh provides location information for asset
tracking, automatic battery supervision and RF signal strength information.

Safe and reliable data traffic is secured by Listen Before Talk, CRC integrity check, acknowledge and retransmission mechanisms on every data packet delivery. TinyMesh is available in Radiocrafts modules at 433, 865 and 868 MHz with optional 500 mW output power for European and Indian markets.
