Title: METHOD FOR MANAGING ADDRESS OF METER DEVICE, AND ACQUISITION TERMINAL AND METER DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided are a method for managing an address of a meter device, and an acquisition terminal and a meter device. The method comprises: an acquisition terminal sending a first signal to a target meter device, and sending a second signal to the remaining meter devices, apart from the target meter device, connected to the acquisition terminal, wherein the first signal instructs the target meter device to respond to an address protocol packet sent by the acquisition terminal, and the second signal instructs the remaining meter devices not to respond to the address protocol packet; and the acquisition terminal broadcasting the address protocol packet, wherein the address protocol packet is used for querying or setting a physical address of the target meter device. In the method for managing an address of a meter device of the embodiments of the present invention, a target meter device responds to an address protocol packet broadcast by means of an acquisition terminal according to a first signal, so that the acquisition terminal can automatically set and query a physical address of a meter device, thereby solving the problem of artificially configuring a physical address of a meter device.
