QLC Gateways

 

Quadlogic meters support a Modbus RTU Interface using RS232/RS485. No other protocol is supported. We have solutions which can map the meter data onto other protocols so you can monitor power and energy data using other systems. Our solutions allow multiple trunks of meters / closets to be connected to a single gateway. Trunks can have multiple units installed. Our Modbus solutions also allow multi-master configurations, so if you already have one system talking to the meters using Modbus RTU you can still add a gateway and have both our gateway and the other system act as masters. We can also provide an embedded web server with pages that display current data.

 

Convert

We have module solutions which allow integration directly into Quadlogic products as well as the stand alone solutions shown bottom right.

Chipkin Automation and Quadlogic

CAS has invested time to work with QMC, the British Columbia distributor of Quadlogic products to test and prove the mappings from the QLC meters. Testing was performed using QMC’s calibration test bench.
