Node Red AMS Decoder

A Node-Red Node for decoding norwegian AMS energy meters.

Compability

The node`s are testet with Aidon and Kamstrup meters.

includes Beta Node for Kaifa meters.

Installation

Go to your Node-RED user folder (e.g. ~/.node-red) and run:

sudo npm i node-red-contrib-ams-decoder

Usage

The node expects a string from msg.payload́ containing the whole message from the AMS energy meter and ouputs the following:

msg.payload.obis_list_version
msg.payload.meter_ID
msg.payload.meter_model
msg.payload.act_pow_pos
msg.payload.act_pow_neg
msg.payload.react_pow_pos
msg.payload.react_pow_neg
msg.payload.curr_L1
msg.payload.curr_L2
msg.payload.curr_L3
msg.payload.volt_L1
msg.payload.volt_L2
msg.payload.volt_L3
msg.payload.date_time
msg.payload.act_energy_pos
msg.payload.act_energy_neg
msg.payload.react_energy_pos
msg.payload.react_energy_neg

Example

Fetch the message from the ams energy meter trough a USB-serial port by using the serialport node.

To get the serial port node you can install:

npm i node-red-node-serialport

These settings in the serialport node seems to work fine:

example1

from the ouput on the serial node use a function node to convert the binary buffer to String. The function node can contain something like:

msg.payload = msg.payload.toString('hex');
return msg;

Then pass the output from the function node to the input of the ams_decoder to decode the ams message.

example2

Use the output as you like with the msg.payload properties as listet above
