Products & Services: Meters and AMR
Collection of Meters and AMR products and services.
Neptune's N_Sight™ metering data management software suite was specifically designed to optimize the strengths of a utility's entire system. Users can assess system health at a glance, gather and deliver detailed consumption information for better customer service, and enhance revenue while recapturing lost water. The software package can help utilities adapt to changing conditions – giving them the option to add functionality while preserving infrastructure assets they already have in the field.

Itron's 100W ERT® communication module for pit applications now comes standard with an integral port that can use the optional Itron TTL (through-the-lid) antenna. In harsh pit applications, the TTL optimizes the read-rate reliability of the company's advanced fixed network systems for water utilities. The antenna offers utilities the flexibility to collect meter data whether deployed in a mobile AMR, Fixed Network AMI, or in hybrid data collection environments — even in harsh conditions such as flooded meter pits or RF-inhibiting pit lids.
AMR digital register
The new innov8 universal register from Transparent Technologies can add years of service to existing water meters while extending low flow accuracy beyond new meter specifications. The register can be installed on most brands of water meters and by eliminating the magnetic drag in typical encoded register designs, brings water meters back to life. The register includes the company's M2 two-way AMR radio that monitors and stores 32,000 data points in intervals as low as 1 minute. The register installs in minutes, without special calibration or the need to shut off the customer.
Spire's wPrime series 280W is a next generation ultrasonic water meter for both cold and hot water metering. It does not have any moving parts that can wear out and requires no maintenance. The meter has a remote readout which could be configured as pulse, M-Bus, Modbus or BACnet. A RF wireless module is available upon request. The meter offers long term stability and accuracy does not degrade over time.

Aclara's STAR® ZoneScan leak-detection solution was jointly developed by Aclara and Zurich-based Gutermann International. The system employs data loggers placed on main valves that sample the sound waves generated by leaks. The data is automatically sent to the utility over the Aclara STAR® Network. There, the system's software correlates the data, pinpointing any leaks to within a few feet. The system can save municipal water utilities time by identifying possible leak locations remotely. It also encourages water conservation by helping utilities identify and fix leaks before they become emergencies.
Sensus is addressing growing utility demands to move more data faster between distinct devices with the next generation of its FlexNet™ point-to-multipoint, enterprise-class network. The system is a long-range radio solution that communicates via primary-use FCC-licensed spectrum. It serves as a dedicated and secure two-way communications highway that transmits at two watts of power to enable wide-area coverage that reaches all points in a utility's service area without the need for additional or hybrid networks. Benefits of this upgrade include the ability to transmit 10 times the amount of data; ability to dedicate distinct channels to specific applications; increased coverage per base station; and the ability to reach every endpoint, reducing backfill requirements.
