Description of **OBIS code** for IEC 62056 standard protocol and the corresponding device value. These codes are useful to know **how to read the energy displayed and measured by the electric meter**!

The OBIS code is displayed on the electric meter screen together with the measured value, its position depends on the meter model and can be positioned anywhere, usually in a corner.
