Error reading through Director

Hi,

we are trying to read EMCO make DLMS meter and we are having the following problems

At the time of downloading OBIS codes we are getting the folowing error

Profile Generic object not found.

After this some OBIS codes are downloaded.

Then we get the following error

Date / Time conversion failed. Invalid DLMS format and
Object Must Implement IConvertible.

Hi,

This error is received because you have data column in your profile generic table that is not found in the device. Usually reason for this is that your device is not correctly configured.

Best Regards,

Mikko

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Do you mean configuring device through Director or changing configuration in meter?

How to configure the device properly?

Thanks

Hi,

For some reason I missed this. Sorry. You should configure the electricity meter.

I believe that you have received configuration program from the manufacturer.
At this point DLMSDirector is not supporting write.
We have plans to add write functionality for the data and register interfaces quite soon. Profile Generics (Tables) we are add this support later on.

Best Regards,

Mikko

Hi,

I believe that your device is not correctly configurated. After your device is working right, you should be able to read device.

We are using new version only. Also the same meter is running ok on other API provided by kalkitech.

Can we send you GSM dialup number for the meter for testing.

If you click "Download Now" button, it did not download the latest version.
Latest version is 1.0.0.87.

Are you sure that you have the latest version?

Hi,

Problem solved. In Profile Generic table (OBIS: 1.0.94.91.3.255) you have added column (OBIS: 0.0.96.7.0.255) with type Register.
The problem is, that you do not have Register Interface with that OBIS code in your EM.
You have Data Interface with OBIS Code 0.0.96.7.0.255.

So you must change Profile generic column's Interface type from Register to Data.

Best Regards,

Mikko

Hi,

Your EM is configured wrong. This has happened when you have selected columns to Profile Generic. Try to make this again or remove OBIS code 0.0.96.7.0.255 from columns.

Best Regards,

Mikko

Hi

I need some help about that.

I am using Gurux/Cosem DLMS director to read a meter device Actaris SL7000, but the problem is that I don't get any data of the measuring, only the Logical Name.
How do I do to read the current, power, voltage, etc?.

Kurumi

Hi,

You must change Authentication from None to Low.
Actaris returns only Logical name with Low authentication.

BR,

Mikko
