How to set Physical server and logical server

I am using the Elster A220 meter. Iam using your software for the first time to read the meter reading. But for Elster meter there is Meter ID on the top of the cover.

How do i set the physical server and logic server by using MeterID?

I need your help.

Hi,

You do not need to take care of Meter ID if you are communicating using serial port
or Infrared Eye.

Just create new device and do not change physical or logical server addresses.

Everything should work like charm.

If you have problems, send you log file (from Tools menu) to me.

BR,

Mikko

Hi,

Please, create a new topic if you have a new question.
A220 isn't supported by DLMS. It's using EN62056-21. You can't read it with GXDLMSDirector.

BR,
Mikko
