This document specifies a data model to abstract the metering world towards a simple external consumer display. The data model, as described by means of functional blocks contained in this document, lays down the format of metering data accessible by a simple external consumer display. This data interface would be typically part of the meter communication functions and be accessed by a simple external consumer display via the H1 interface of CEN/CLC/ETSI TR 50572 between the display and the meter communication functions.
The data interface specified in this document may also be accessed by the LNAP or NNAP through the C or M interface, after which the data could be accessed by HBES devices through the H2 and H3 interfaces.
In other words, in this way the same data model can be used both on the H1 as well as the H2 and H3 interfaces.
This document does not specify the communication mechanisms used on the data interface, nor the applied data privacy and security mechanisms, nor the ergonomics of the simple external consumer displays, where national regulations can apply.
The document does also not specify the communication protocol used between the meters and the meter communication functions. However, it takes into account existing standards such as the EN 13757 series (in particular EN 13757-3:2018 and its Annex H) and the IEC 62056 series for the definition of the data model.
