OMS-Group welcomes its fiftieth member
Munich 18.03.2014. – The meter manufacturers B METERS from Italy and
VIPA from the Czech Republic will, from now on, bring their expertise
to the OMS Group and its standards, which was developed from the
European M-Bus EN 13757-x standard and guarantees media and vendor
independent meter data communication.
The Czech company, VIPA CZ s.r.o., is a leading manufacturer of water and heating meters, as well as being an expert in the billing of domestic heating and heat costs.
B METERS, with an annual production of more than 1.3 million meters, is
one of the largest manufacturers in Italy and Europe. The focus of the
company, founded in 1991, is on water meters.
The OMS Group has grown strongly in recent years and now comprises fifty-one members, mainly meter manufacturers and energy service providers. Twelve of them are from the neighboring Europe. In view of the increasing European orientation, the OMS Group is planning an international joint booth at the Utility Week in Amsterdam in November 2014 for the first time.
The OMS Group includes one of the 50 interest groups of the two
founding associations (figawa and KNX) and businesses from nine
European countries. The Open Metering System Specification has
developed an open, cross-manufacturer, interoperable standard for the
communication of consumption meters for electricity, gas, water and
heat, inclusive of sub-metering. OMS is based on the EN 13757-x and is
compatible with the worldwide Standard for home and building control
KNX (ISO/ IEC 14543-3; EN50090), so that in conjunction with the
metered billing, the building automation system, eg. for energy
management, can also be directly interconnected. Thus the requirements
for future services, such as tariff or load management - can be met in
a cost-effective manner due to OMS. Intelligent OMS meters are a
prerequisite for energy-saving through Smart Grids and Smart Homes or
the optimal involvement of renewable energies, such as wind power or
