We manufacture intelligent (Prepaid) watermeters and supply water meter management system.
The Intelligent Water Meter and the supporting Meter Management System (MMS) provides a revolutionary approach to Water Demand Management. The Intelligent Water Meter ensures significant water savings through consumption management and leak detection with the added benefit of no billing costs. Bad debt is reduced and the lower consumption contributes towards reduced demand on reticulation and treatment plant. The Intelligent Water Meter can be set to operate in a number of different modes and it can be electronically switched between modes without removing the meter. This provides both customers and service providers with complete flexibility.
The meter can be operated in a number of different modes, for example:
• Water Management Device to control daily consumption
• Standard Prepayment meter allowing customers to manage their water consumption and provide water to the user at the lowest possible cost
• Post pay mode with a settable credit limit to provide standard meter advantages but with no billing required
An optional Lifeline feature is available on all meters
• Wall Mounting supplied complete with shut off and non-return valve and fully reversible mounting to facilitate pipe runs Pillar Box Housing for yard installation complete with shut off valve, non return valve, and quick fit compression fittings Above Ground Unit supplied complete with manifold for easy replacement of existing conventional meters
The unit consists of a Class B multi jet water meter with electronic read out and integrated flow control valve. The unit is designed to operate at high and low temperatures, can handle entrained sand and dirt, compensate for air in the water supply and withstand lightning strikes. The unit is meterologically sealed and provides a high level of resistance to physical tamper and is immune to magnetic tamper. Should the meter become faulty it can be replaced in the field within ten minutes. The meter is powered by a long-life battery which is field replaceable. Each user is issued with a user tag in the form of an iButton™. The iButton™ has non-volatile memory and is built into a small, robust holder designed to withstand rough handling. The Intelligent Water Meter is housed in a robust UV resistant plastic casing that is SANS approved for outside installation and is available in three configurations: The total unit is SANS 1529-1. 1529-9: 2003 compliant and is manufactured to ISO 9001:2008 standards.
