EN 16314:2013 (E) 5 Introduction

This European Standard has been drafted as part of the work being undertaken by the European Standards Organisations (CEN/CENELEC/ETSI) under the Commission Mandate M/441. This standard utilises the six functionalities agreed by the Smart Meters Coordination Group (SM-CG) (see Annex C) as the basis for its additional functionalities. It is not necessary for the Additional Functionality Device (AFD) to incorporate all functions. This standard builds on CEN/TR 16061 by providing specific requirements for the additional functionality that can be fitted to a gas meter.

This standard contains requirements for gas valves integral within the meters and controlled by an AFD where the capacity of the gas meter does not exceed 10 m3/h. Such gas valves are intended for interruption of the gas supply but do not replace any valve intended to isolate the gas supply. Communications for gas meters are outside the scope of this standard and are covered by the appropriate parts of EN 13757, which provide a number of protocols and transport layers for meter communications for Gas, Water and Heat meters. A number of methods can provide the additional functionality for gas meters: these are illustrated below, see Figure 1, and described in detail within this standard. The AFD can be integral to the gas meter, attached to the meter or remote from the meter.

EN 16314:2013 (E) 6 1 Scope This European Standard specifies the additional requirements and tests for gas meters with a maximum capacity of 40 m3/h and a maximum operating pressure of not exceeding 500 mbar, conforming to EN 1359, EN 12261, EN 12480, EN 12405 and EN 14236, which have battery powered devices providing additional functionalities that form part of the gas meter (hereafter referred to as meter) or contained in an Additional Functionality Device (AFD). It also covers the additional requirements when an electronic index is used rather that a mechanical one. Where the option of an integral valve to the meter is specified, this standard only gives requirements for meters having a maximum capacity not exceeding 10 m3/h.

This European Standard is applicable to first, second and third family gases according to EN 437.

This European Standard specifies the construction requirements for electronic components but communication protocols are dealt within other European Standards, e.g. appropriate parts of EN 13757. NOTE This European Standard covers connections to auxiliary devices but not the requirements for these devices. This European Standard applies to AFDs that are installed in locations with vibration and shocks of low significance and in:  closed locations (indoor or outdoor with protection as specified by the manufacturer) with condensing or with non-condensing humidity, or, if specified by the manufacturer: — open locations (outdoor without any covering) with condensing humidity or with non-condensing humidity, — locations liable to temporary saturation,

and in locations with electromagnetic disturbances corresponding to those likely to be found in residential, commercial buildings or similar buildings. This European Standard does not cover the changing of metrological software within the meter or the upload/download of metrological software. This European Standard only covers valves integral to the meter. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.
