DE6600 supports data collection both for gas and electricity meters on scheduled or on-demand methods. It also supports IHD to display energy relative information for the user. The DE6600 is built in small footprint, flexible enclosures for installation, low power consumption and high reliability, which provide a cost-effective communication solution for UK smart metering project.
