Neptune’s extremely versatile R900® System provides utilities with a wide variety of functionalities, from mobile or handheld automatic meter reading (AMR) processes all the way to advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) using a full fixed network.
Everything from the intelligent 8-digit, high-registration E-Coder® solid state absolute encoder to the R900® meter interface units (MIUs) to the R900® Gateway data collector is designed to work together seamlessly. Neptune’s field-proven R900 radio frequency (RF) technology provides easy migration that allows utilities to build on the investments they’ve already made in the field.
Utilities who implement the R900 System routinely achieve 100-percent meter reading accuracy, daily readings, and monthly billing, along with a wealth of data including leak, tamper, and reverse flow detection. Neptune’s combination encoder/MIU, the E-Coder®)R900i™, makes installation even easier while allowing utilities to retrieve 96 days of hourly data directly from the meter and then download the information directly into N_SIGHT™ R900® host software.
The addition of R900 Gateways can gather timelier meter consumption data while providing final daily reads from for move-ins and move-outs that eliminate truck rolls when a full fixed network is in place.
And with the enhancements of N_SIGHT R900, utilities can do more than ever before with the data that makes the difference. System health screens to monitor fixed network assets at a glance. Standard and customizable reporting. Intuitive graphical representation of consumption as well as leak, tamper, and reverse flow information. And GIS mapping to identify exact locations of continuous leaks as well as reverse flow events.
