MetronR - Radio Networks for Sensors and Meters

MetronR is our simple, low-maintenance range of radio relemetry devices, typically used for remote meter reading and environmental monitoring. The remote meter reading generally covers gas, water and electricity in factories, retail parks and apartments as well as leisure environments like caravan parks. ATEX versions of Metron are available for gas metering applications. For environmental monitoring the radio transmitters are available with a range of integral sensors including CO2 sensors, temperature sensors and humidity sensors, or for use with external sensors, using the 4-20mA and 0-10 volts input versions.
Radio transmitters take readings from your meters and send them to a hub which has an RS232/RS485 interface so you can interface your data direclty to BMS, SCADA, PLC's and more. Alternatively Powelectrics offer GSM telemetry solutions which can transmit the meter readings and sensor data over the GSM (mobile phone) network and make it available securely via the internet. This is an extremely cost effective way to monitor multiple data sources, using only one sim card. MetronR is easy to install using simple instructions. No programming experience is needed. It offers an exceptional range and a possible battery life of 10 years. MetronR can be used wth pulse inputs, integral sensors or external sensors.
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.
