What is NB IoT Box
Unlock the Future of Smart Metering with NB-IoT Technology by VERAUT
The NB-IoT Box is a state-of-the-art, battery-powered data logger, specifically designed for smart metering and reading external measurement devices through various interfaces.
The NB IoT Box, developed for smart metering and reading various measuring devices, uses the 3GPP Narrowband Internet of Things technology for reliable and efficient data transmission.
Versatile Interfaces for Various Measuring Devices
Serial Interface RS232/RS485
Serial Input TTL 3V
The Serial Input TTL 3V interface allows for serial communication on MCU level between the NB IoT Box and compatible devices.
Pulse Input (Digital Input)
A pulse input, often referred to as a Reed contact, captures discrete pulse signals. Reed contacts are magnetic sensors with two ferromagnetic reeds. When near a magnetic field, the contacts close, forming a circuit. Each pulse in metering represents a specific quantity and enables consumption monitoring.
Pulse Output (Digital Output)
Analog Input (0-10V / 0-20mA)
The Analog Input interface enables the NB IoT Box to measure and monitor analog signals from external devices. It accepts a range of voltage or current signals, making it suitable for connecting various analog sensors and meters. (e.g. pressure sensor, etc)
The Encoder SCR/Namur interface provides compatibility with devices utilizing the SCR (Smart Communication Redundancy) or Namur communication protocols. It allows the NB IoT Box to communicate with devices such as absolute encoder meters.
The MBUS Push interface is designed specifically for metering applications. It allows the NB IoT Box to connect to devices using the MBUS (Meter-Bus) protocol (EN13757) based on a TTL 3V level (mcu), which is commonly employed in utility metering systems. This interface facilitates the seamless integration and remote monitoring of metering devices.

Advantages of NB IoT Technology
NB IOT Technology
NB IoT, or Narrowband Internet of Things, offers a range of advantages for various applications. Below, we explore the key benefits of NB IoT, including its long battery life, dynamic battery management, excellent building penetration, easy networking, reliable data transmission, and optimized compatibility with existing mobile networks.
Secured, standardized NB IoT Communication
The NB-IoT technology, standardized by 3GPP, is a powerful solution for IoT connectivity. With the NB-IoT box, data is transmitted securely and reliably to an MQTT or CoAp server every hour. It provides a secure connection using TLS, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of the data. Internally, the NB-IoT box employs AES128 encryption to protect the transmitted data packets. Moreover, it offers the potential to leverage blockchain technology. By sealing each data packet at the source with robust cryptography, a trustworthy and immutable “Chain of Trust” is created, preventing any unauthorized manipulation, duplication, or deletion of IoT data throughout its digital journey.
