Wireless M-Bus Stack
The popular wireless M-Bus Protocol Stack by STACKFORCE leads to competitive products that are easy to install and maintain. The stack implements all protocol elements that are required for wireless M-Bus compliance and provides additional tool support. It is optimized towards a compromise of small footprint, excellent modularity and scalability, but though being feature-rich.
STACKFORCE has partnered with multiple industry leading silicon vendors, thus the stack has already been ported to various platforms.
customers of Our wireless M-Bus Stack
We're proud, that several major players in their sector are trusting in STACKFORCE and are convinced by our wireless M-Bus Stack.
Let us convince you, too, of our well-proven and famous wireless M-Bus Stack:

Support of hardware acceleration
If provided by the platform, the stack supports the use of hardware acceleration, like:
- AES de- / encryption
- De- / encoding of Manchester, 3 out of 6, ...
Wireless M-bus mode and device type selection
Selection of mode (e.g. T and C), direction (unidirectional / bidirectional) is possible ...
- during compile time to shrink the memory footprint.
- during runtime to permit flexibility at any time in the field.
Flexible Software Timer
Dynamic hardware timer adaptation including compensation in order to occupy only one hardware timer (and an RTC if applicable) for all wireless M-Bus related timings.
Support of any type of non-volatile memory
- EEPROM, Flash, MRAM, …
- Internal / external (e.g. connected via SPI)
Beyond wireless M-Bus
Wireless M-Bus surely is the standard protocol for metering purposes. But wouldn't it be great to enhance the flexibility of your network and to be able to switch between wireless M-Bus or OMS and also LPWAN technologies like mioty®, LoRaWAN®, Sigfox and others? We make it possible!
Our Multi-Stacks offer the possibility to choose between several stacks and radio standards, such as mioty®, LoRaWAN®, wireless M-Bus, OMS, Sigfox and others. This flexible solution allows you to achieve maximum usability when you connect your product to the Internet of Things (IoT).
- First level support
- Easy commissioning and configuration
- Warranty and maintenance
- Ensures a high quality product
