Engineer Standards

During our work on we got in contact with international standards. Here collected some resources which could be helpful when implementing protocols etc.

Most of the standards are maintained by one of the two smart metering commitees: DLMS UA and OMS Group


  • ANSI C12.18: The optical port and PSEM standard for metering
  • ANSI C12.19: The data structure (tables) standard for metering
  • ANSI C12.21: The modem and PSEM standard for metering
  • ANSI C12.22: The network protocol standard for metering

OMS Group

Open Metering System Group


M-Bus (Meter-Bus)

Communication systems for meters and remote reading of meters


Device Language Message Specification User Association (originally Distribution Line Message Specification)


DIN EN 62056: Electricity metering - Data exchange for meter reading, tariff and load control

The series of DIN EN 62056 standards superseeds IEC 61107 and is used in Europe.
