Smart Gas Meters

Genus Smart Gas Meters (SKG16)

Genus Smart Gas Meters(SKG16) offers a high level of functionality, low power consumption, reliability and high flexibility with customized solutions. All the features of a smart postpaid meter that are required to fulfil customer requirements are available in SKG16.

Meter Interface Unit (g-Setu)

MIU i.e., the smart AMR-RF “g-Setu” is a gas meter retrofitting device that uses LoRaWAN communication and RF walk-by technology to collect the meter reading. It then communicates the gas consumption data to a software platform (HES). Further consumer mobile app can provided for the consumer to view consumption data on the mobile.


  • Accurate and synchronized operation of MIU device with Gas Meter.
  • Optical interface for local maintenance. 
  • IP65 ingress protection rating (IEC 60529)
  • Digital LCD display with the function-specific symbols
  • Storage of Historic Gas consumption data, feature to detect gas consumption above or below threshold values
  • ATEX, PESO, WPC, and IEC 60079 Certification

Smart functionalities:

  • Hybrid communication technology (LoRaWAN and RF walk-by)
  • Low power due to energy-conserving operations
  • G-SETU provides long-range communication between meters and gateways using LoRaWAN communication
  • Alarm for Magnet tamper, Device Removal, low battery
  • HES with yearly, Half-yearly, Quarterly, Monthly data analytics with variance analysis, exception reports
