The IPS-530 Water Meter Gateway device transmits data from pulse water meters to the data acquisition and processing head-end system via NB-IoT/Cat-M1 communication networks. 

Mechanical construction

  • Stand alone enclosure
  • Internal antenna (optional external antenna)
  • IP68 
  • Ambient temperature -25..+70 oC


  • 10-15 years lifetime (depending on messeging frequency)
  • Replacable


  • Pulse - water consumption
  • Magnetic sabotage
  • Motion sensor
  • Gateway door opening
  • Temperature sensor


  • NB-IoT / Cat-M1 (LTE-M, eMTCwireless connection to host system 
  • Supported bands: 
    • CAT-M1: B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B8/B12/B13/B14/B18/B19/B20/B25/B26/B27/B28/B31/B66/B72/B85 
    • NB-IoT: B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B8/B12/B13/B18/B19/B20/B25/B26/B28/B31/B66/B85

Collected and Processed data

  • Master data 
    • Serial number of the connected meter 
    • Serial number of the communication gateway 
    • Firmware version of the communication gateway 
    • Firmware checksum 
    • Pulse weight (e.g. 0,01 m3/pulse) 
    • RTC (real-time clock) in UTC format 
  • Data collection parameters 
    • Integration period (default: 1 hour) 
    • Messaging period (default: 1 day) 
  • Consumption alert parameters 
    • Qmin threshold 
    • Qmin duration 
    • Qmax threshold 
    • Qmax duration 
    • Block meter detection duration 
    • Leakage detection duration 
  • Consumption register (actual value): pulse count, xxxxx.xxx m3 
  • Data log 
    • Consumption register values at the end of integration periods 
    • Consumption register values at the end of messaging periods 
    • Consumption register values at the end of month 
  • Operation log 
    • Master data changes 
    • Parameter changes 
    • Alerts 

Communication types

  • Scheduled PUSH communication (Gateway -> Head-End) - initiated from device side in given periods (parameter): 
    • Data log in ABL file format or DLMS/COSEM (EN 62056) format messages 
    • Push messaging framework makes it easy to implement other protocols 
    • Technical data in hearth-beat messages (signal quality, battery status, etc.) 
  • Prompt PUSH communication (Gateway -> Head-End): 
    • Alert messages 
    • Heart-beat message initiated manually from device side with magnet or push button inside the device 
  • Pull (Head-End -> Gateway) - as a response to a push message. 
    • Master data settings 
    • Parameter settings 
    • Cross-checked register value 
    • Real-time clock synchronization 
    • Operation log request (for a given period) 
    • Consumption data resend request (for a given period) 


  • Magnetic sabotage detection on gateway 
  • Gateway removed 
  • Gateway opened 
  • Battery voltage low 
  • Block detection 
  • Leakage detection 
  • Volume above Qmax 
  • Volume below Qmin
