Generic Companion Profiles

DLMS UA has developed Generic Companion Profiles to ensure the highest level of interoperability and compatibility among devices that implement them.

A generic companion profile is a precise selection of features and functionalities specified in the DLMS UA Core Specifications, specifically tailored to meet the requirements of various use cases. 

By aggregating multiple use cases and parameterizing and configuring the core functionalities, a specific application can be developed to cater to devices or services within a particular industry.

These generic companion profiles serve as standardized guidelines and specifications, allowing devices from different manufacturers to seamlessly communicate and behave in the same way independently of their origin. By implementing these profiles, utilities and device implementers can ensure smooth integration and enhanced functionality, ultimately benefiting end-users.
