September 2018: New Product IEC2Modbus

Modbus Protocol Converter

IEC2Modbus is a device that can be used to connect intelligent energy meters to different Modbus systems. This protocol converter is designed for use with any meter which supports the IEC62056-21 (IEC61107/IEC1107) protocol with OBIS codes and meters with a RS485 interface for data acquisition. It can be connected without breaking the approval seal.
Using this protocol converter actual values of one or more meters can be processed (2 RS485 buses with max. 12 meters each). The billing list or a service/auxiliary table (meter dependent) can be read. Either an automatic mapping of valid OBIS codes or 5 freely selectable OBIS codes per meter can be processed. With the integrated Modbus-RTU interface this data can be acquired by the acquisition system / control center (energy management / SCADA).



  • RS485-interface (2-wire) for bi-directional communication
  • Transmission protocol: Modbus RTU
  • 2 serial RS485-meter-interfaces
  • For data exchange:
    • protocol IEC 62056-21 (OBIS)
    • billing list or service / auxiliary table
    • automatic mapped or filtered OBIS codes
  • Max: 24 meters on two RS485-buses
  • Max: 5 (10) values per meter
  • Protocol conversion of the data from the meters into Modbus register
  • Power supply : 10…32VDC
  • Signalisation: four LEDs (3x interfaces, 1x status)
  • PC parametrisation software available

April 2018: New Product UniMod LTE

Universal cellular modem

The universal radio modem UniMod LTE is supposed for remote inquiry of measurement data of any kind, especially however for telecounting applications. The modem can be used in any 4G/3G/2G (LTE/UMTS/GPRS) cellular network with an arbitrary number of providers. The UniMod LTE supports meter data communication according to DIN 43863-4 (IP-Telemetry) with TLS encryption (with integrated certificate administration) and/or static IP address. An optional application is monitoring and control infrastructure of photovoltaic installations, buildings, properties and local distribution networks.

UniMod GSM Control

  • Parameterization and service software
  • Compatible to SIGLON® and Meter2SCADA®

March 2011

E-World Logo Our expectations from the E-world 2011 have been sur­passed by reality yet, the joint stand of the companies Baer Industrie-Elektronik GmbH and iS Software Sales and Service GmbH has enjoyed a lively cus­tomer interest. In addition to many of our customers, we were able to welcome new and highly interested visitors from home and abroad.

The new release V3.1 of our meter reading system SIGLON with respect to the enhanced functionality was very well re­ceived by the more than 300 system operators. Another highlight was the launch of the application Meter2SCADA. This innovation bridges the gap from the previous energy charging to grid operations (SCADA), using identical, accurate measured values near real time. Deviations from the previous billing against the load schedule and the network prediction are eliminated, first users reported sustainable productivity increases and very short payback periods.

With Meter2SCADA and components of the new Baer Field Control system makes the company bear their part about the smart grid. Specifically, the distribution grid operators could respond to fluctuations in energy demand, targeted to small producers to be taken off the network and reconnected.

We thank all visitors for the exciting, breakthrough talks, and would already like to refer to the upcoming E-world. It takes place from February 7th-9th 2012 again in Essen.

January 2011

[ WFES Picture ]

The World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, UAE, started January 17th 2011 for four days. This summit  concentrates on clean energy like solar or wind power but does not forget other elements like the availability and cleanliness of water.   General  Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nayan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces inaugurated the summit along with UN Secretary General  Ban Ki-Moon. Among other head of states or royalties were Asif Ali Zardari, President of Pakistan,   Ólafur Ragnar Grimsson, President of Iceland, Jose Socrates Carvallo Pinto de Sousa, Prime Minister of Portugal, Nikolaz Gilauri, Prime Minister of Georgia, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Guillaume, Crown Prince of Luxembourg.  
More than 600 companies have participated and presented new or proven technologies  which will help to reduce  the carbon dioxide output  and to bring clean energy also all parts of the world.  The summit also showed that besides the technology progress  it also needs a firm political commitment  to support renewal energy at least as a start up to bridge the gap to conventional  energy resources.
For the exhibitors the summit proved to be again an event which is worthwhile participating with many industry professionals  and trade visitors at one place.


February 2010

Baer at the Middle East Electricity 2010 in Dubai, UAE

At the stand The MEE2010 in Dubai, UAE is always also a window to see the prosperity of a market. The amount of visitors has increased dramatically since last year. However, a large number of visitors were coming from surrounding countries like Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and a little farer also from India and Pakistan or China.
Many high ranking persons up to CEO’s contributed to the success of this fair. Baer’s product range of hardware, systems and services met very well the expectation of the fair visitors. The automated reading software SIGLON for Grid and Industrial Metering is just the solution many companies were looking for.
As a new application, the Meter to SCADA (M2S) solution connects the meter data world with the requirements for these data in load dispatch systems. With industrial areas being refurbished or completely new constructed M2S could offer a perfect solution.

Baer thanks all visitors for their interest and excellent discussions to make this an utmost successful fair.
