This guide will show you how to connect the Polar Monitoring Gateway to the Soccomec Countis  E33  electricity meter. It will also take you through the setup and parameters required on the Soccomec Countis E33  to ensure communications to the Polar Gateway.

Steps to follow:

  1. Connect power to the Gateway.
  2. Connect RS-485.
  3. Final checks.
  4. Power on the system.
  5. Configure the Countis E33  Serial Parameters

Wire the RS-485 cable to allow communication with the Polar Gateway device. Connect  A+ => 15+ and B- => 17-.

3. Final checks
Before you switch on the device make sure you have done everything correctly in the previous steps.
 
  • Make sure the power is OFF while doing the cable wiring.
  • Re-check if there are no short circuits.
  • Check if the power cables are not loosely wired to the Gateway.
  • Check if the power cables are not loosely wired to the Electricity Meter.
  • Re-check the RS-485 twisted pair cables is correctly connected A+ => 15+ and B- => 17-.
4. Power on the system

Now you are ready to go, you can now switch on the Polar Gateway and the Countis E33.  

5. Configure Countis E33  Serial Parameters
In order for the Gateway to correctly communicate with the Soccomec Countis E33  controller, there will need to be some changes made to the communication parameters. 

Note: It is critical to change the default settings to reflect the table below.
