The Trend EMIC/MDA/8 (Ethernet Metering Interface Controller) provides an interface for up to 8 energy meters. It connects to the Trend system using Ethernet, and to the meters using RS485, MODBUS. It sits on the Trend internetwork, and takes a Lan for its own use, each meter being represented by an outstation on that Lan. Then data from each meter is collected using the RS485 bus and stored in the EMIC within the relevant outstation. The Trend EMIC/MDA/8 can be configured using an integral web server for ease of commissioning.
