LoRa Wireless Prepaid AMR/AMI Water Meter
LAISON Split Type LoRa Wireless STS Prepaid Water Meter with AMR/AMI function, realizes the prepayment function and remote semi-automatic/automatic meter data collection through LoRa RF wireless Com. Module. This solution is in order to solve the non-revenue water for water companies. At the same time, it can automatically collect and monitor the meter data, improving the efficiency of meter reading and reducing the cost of management.
LoRa Wireless STS Prepaid Water Meter complies to International STS Standard IEC62055-41,51, gets certified from STSA. Customers could purchase water through multiple methods (Vending Points, Agency, Customer Self-service, ect.), then obtain 20-digit recharge token, and input the recharge token through Customer Interface Unit (CIU) to recharge the meter.
Meanwhile, the meter integrated with LoRa RF Wireless Module could be upgraded to AMR/AMI solution for remote meter data collection. By walking along or driving along the street, basic Meters' Data ( Monthly Consumed Water, Meter Battery Voltage, Run Status, ect.) could be collected automatically by Mobile Data Collector (MDC) and LAISON POS which equipped with LAISON Walk-by DataCollection APP (AquaRadius App.), and be uploaded to Center System by GPRS or WiFi. Another way, adopt Data Concentrator Unit (DCU) in concentrated meter installation areas, which could communicate with meter via LoRa RF Wireless Com. and the center system via GPRS. It could communicate with meters in the range of 500m-1km. Meters' data could be uploaded to Center System automatically everyday, for Customer Monitor, Consumption Data Analyzing, Possible Leakage and tamper situation detection etc., Which actually realizes Meter Data Acquisition Automation.
