Editing global encryption key

  1. Enter the M-Bus wireless settings page.

  2. Use Up/Down keys to scroll through the menu and press OK key when 1. Global enc. key is selected.

    The global encryption key is used by meters configured to use the global key for encryption/decryption. This is useful when multiple meters have the same encryption key.

    The encryption key is used to decrypt the telegrams received from the wireless M-Bus slave, which enables standard wired M-Bus readout. If a meter is sending encrypted telegrams and there is no/wrong encryption key entered, the readout on the wired M-Bus interface will return a container telegram with encrypted data. This kind of container telegram is normally not readable by a standard M-Bus readout software.

    The encryption key can be obtained by the manufacturer of the wireless M-Bus slave.

  3. Change the encryption key using Up/Down keys and move the cursor using Right/Left keys.

  4. Press OK to accept the changes, or press ESC to cancel.
