The OBIS code identifies the corresponding device value. It is a text string composed according to the OBIS standard (see IEC 62056-61). The code consists of (up to) 6 group sub-identifiers marked by letters A to F. All these may or may not be present in the identifier (e.g. groups A and B are often omitted). In order to decide to which group the sub-identifier belongs, the groups are separated by unique separators: Examples of code usage:

Older and simpler variant is the EDIS code. This code, for example, does not cover the groups A and B (see further).

This code is used in the PROMOTIC system for the PmIEC62056 communication driver. The driver, after receiving the "Readout - Values readout" type message, saves the large text string into the "ResultList" variable. The OBIS value code is located at the beginning of each row in the string.

A-B:C.D.E*F

- The A group specifies the medium (0=abstract objects, 1=electricity, 6=heat, 7=gas, 8=water ...)

- The B group specifies the channel. Each device with multiple channels generating measurement results, can separate the results into the channels.

- The C group specifies the physical value (current, voltage, energy, level, temperature, ...)

- The D group specifies the quantity computation result of specific algorythm

- The E group specifies the measurement type defined by groups A to D into individual measurements (e.g. switching ranges)

- The F group separates the results partly defined by groups A to E. The typical usage is the specification of individual time ranges.
