ICHIS Noise »


What is ICHIS?

The Intimate Communications Hub Interface Specification (ICHIS) defines a common interface between Intimate Communications Hubs (ICHs) and Smart Meters, which will be deployed for the GB Smart Metering Implementation Programme (SMIP).

The methodology behind testing Radio Frequency (RF) emissions of Electricity Smart Meters, and the pass criteria for RF emissions at varying frequencies, can be found in Part F of the ICHIS.

Please visit the DCC’s website here to view the ICHIS.
