IEEE P1704 DRAFT
Draft Standard for Utility Industry End Device Communications Module
|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
This standard serves as the extension of (but not limited to) IEEE Std 1703 in regard to the devices and communications module physical hardware interfaces, reference signals, and their description. IEEE 1704 Communication modules are described as being attachable and removable to/from the IEEE 1704 Devices.
Utility End Devices such as meters are becoming utilized as smart metering devices in Advanced Metering Infrastructure environments. The purpose of this standard is to define uniform physical characteristics for the communications devices that will be attaching/detaching to the IEEE Std 1377 utility end devices that communicate via IEEE Std 1703.
