Automatic Meter Reading

Powelectrics offer simple, low-maintenance, cost-effective connected sensor solutions for fair, accurate meter reading and billing and to identify and reduce wastage. In addition to our award winning GSM telemetry, Powelectrics now offer radio telemetry for metering gas, water and electricity in shared spaces such as factories, retail parks and apartments and in leisure environments, such as caravan parks. Radio transmitters take readings from your meters and send them to a hub, which  forwards them over the GSM (mobile phone) network and makes the data available securely via the internet.

Near real time and historical data regarding the consumption of electricity, gas and water allows for accurate billing mechanisms and trend analysis to help manage energy consumption and identify unauthorised use of resources, leakage and waste. For example, in a caravan park, guests can be charged fairly for the resources they actually use, rather than the traditional fixed charge. Guests understand that they will be liable for their personal usage of water, gas and electricity, which should ensure that they only use the resources that they need. This benefits the park management, the guest and the environment.

he MetronR is easy to install, with an exceptional range and a possible battery life of 10 years. MetronR can be used wth pulse inputs or a range of integral sensors including temperature sensors and humidity sensors. ATEX versions are available for gas metering applications. Powelectrics data collection and viewing platform, Metron View, is a web based data logger, showing tables and graphs. It can send out alarms by email/text if a defined threshold is crossed or if a device has not reported in. Metron View is easily badged and customised, delivering bespoke reports and data exports and interfacing via an API with existing management & control systems. We can work with you to develop a bespoke site for any application.
