Holosys HoloSphere HS is a compact design gateway device suitable for implementation and integration in various Automatic Meter Reading scenarios.


Battery powered version of the device provides easy installation on the field. Transmitted meter readout data are received by embedded Wireless M-Bus OMS receiver or LoRaWAN™ modules and stored in the local device memory. Meter readout data can be sent periodically to a central server location or meter readout data transfer can be achieved from a central server location per request.

Data collection

  • Wireless M-Bus OMS devices readout according to EN13757-4, Wireless M-Bus T1/C1 Mode, 868.95 MHz
  • Radio telegram AES128-bit decryption feature by user setting the telegram decription key
  • Meter readout data processing and storage into non-volatile memory
  • Up to 10000 Wireless M-Bus OMS meters readouts stored

 Recording of received meter readout data

  • Periodical data readout with adjustable time period
  • Recording of readout data into embedded non-volatile NAND Flash memory up to 4GB with at least one year readout data storage time with one hour data readout time period
  • XML readout data storage file format for easy data processing and integration in various information systems
  • Configurable alarms and alerts for system parameters, system logs storage to non-volatile memory, alarms and alerts transmission using SMS, SMTP or FTP protocols
  • Meter readout data transfer to one or multiple FTP servers
  • 15 minutes minimum readout data transfer period resolution
  • Resend or delayed readout data transfer option due to potential connection or data transfer issues or potential system failure
