Metermade Meter Interface Unit

The Metermade® range of Meter Interface Units (MIU) is purpose-built for field flow meter telemetry applications in the water industry.

The Metermade® N1

metermade-n1-smallThe Metermade® N1 MIU is an ultra-low power device, designed to operate in the field for up to ten years on a single set of batteries (based on one report per day). The N1 is equipped with an internal 3G cellular module and SMS capability for remote monitoring. It is the lowest cost option to provide reliable billing revenue data, directly to a host database using the DNP3 protocol. The N1 is equipped with a single pulse digital input and a tamper detection digital input. It also features a magnetic swipe function to allow on-site meter reads and data updates by field personnel. Its housing exceeds the IP68 ingress protection rating, permitting direct installation onto a flow meter and is capable of surviving submersion to a depth of 4 metres for 4 days. The MIU configuration supports bulk editing/generation permitting high volume configuration and deployment.

The Metermade® S1

metermade-s1-Pulse-output Meter Interface Unit – SatelliteThe Metermade® S1 MIU is an ultra-low-power, weather-sealed, flow meter satellite RTU. It is equipped with an internal one-way Globalstar® satellite communications module, capable of near world-wide operation. It is designed to operate in the field for up to ten years on a single set of batteries, based on one report per day. The S1 is equipped with a single pulse digital input and a tamper detection digital input. The housing surpasses the IP68 rating, permitting direct installation into wet areas and is capable of surviving submersion to a depth of 4 metres for 4 days. The Metermade® S1 MIU requires no user configuration; it is shipped with a default configuration ready for immediate field deployment. User configuration is possible to allow for customisation of default settings if required. It also features a magnetic swipe function to allow on-demand meter reads and data updates by field personnel.

The Metermade® R2

metermade-r2-Intelligent Meter Interface Unit – RadioThe Metermade® R2 is a self-contained radio telemetry interface for industry-standard flow meters. It is compatible with flow meters from Tyco/Pentair, Siemens and ABB. The R2 has been engineered to reduce the time taken for installation and commissioning to approximately thirty minutes. Upon establishing a connection to a flow meter, the R2 will automatically construct a device profile, collating the hey data parameters including: real-time flow, flow totalisers, battery voltage, solar voltage, flow meter firmware version, diagnostic information and various status flags. Data is stored internally on non-volatile Flash memory with upstream communications provided using an internal 900MHz FHSS radio transceiver. Host compatibility is ensured with integrated DNP3.0 protocol support. Custom data reporting and wake-from-sleep regimes can be user configured to balance communications uptime and data reporting requirements.
