Title Electricity metering data exchange - The DLMS/COSEM suite - Part 6-1: Object Identification System (OBIS)
Project Number 23222
Abstract/Scope IEC 62056-6-1:2013 specifies the overall structure of the OBject Identification System (OBIS) and the mapping of all commonly used data items in metering equipment to their identification codes. OBIS provides a unique identifier for all data within the metering equipment, including not only measurement values, but also abstract values used for configuration or obtaining information about the behaviour of the metering equipment.
