The Hexagram Star® Wireless Fixed Network AMR System provides fully automatic meter reading. The use of licensed radio channels insures reliable performance throughout the life of the system. The system includes meter transmission units (MTUs) at the endpoints, data collection units (DCUs) typically installed in a one mile grid throughout the service area, and a network control computer (NCC) located at the utility. The MTU reads the utility meter at a pre-set interval anywhere from every five minutes to twice daily. Each MTU then sends those reads via the secure radio channel to the DCU. The DCU gathers all the daily readings and then delivers those reads to the NCC once a day, either by cell phone, dark fiber, Wifi connection, or other means. The NCC then compiles all the data, making it available to the utility in scheduled management reports, and as immediately available customer account information. The system provides universal compatibility with existing meters or future meters that might be installed.
