You may be surrounded by data, but starved for insights. To go beyond basic meter reading and billing, your utility needs tools that provide a deeper understanding of the data you collect — that turn it into meaningful information for a smart water network.
The N_SIGHT™ software suite is comprised of three modules that are designed to work together to address your meter reading, data storage, and analytics needs. N_SIGHT™ host is the basis for mobile AMR; N_SIGHT™ PLUS host is used for fixed network AMI; N_SIGHT™ IQ is a meter data warehouse, consumer portal, and analytics application that can be used with N_SIGHT and/or N_SIGHT PLUS.
It starts with Neptune’s E-Coder®-equipped meters, which provide the data “fuel” for the N_SIGHT software suite’s analysis “engine”. The accurate, detailed, and timely consumption data at the meter identifies leaks, backflow, and days of no flow. With Neptune’s latest enhancements to its R900® System, 96 days of hourly consumption data can be available at any time for an individual account. With this data logging functionality, you can identify — and address — existing or potential issues faster, saving time and money.
N_SIGHT™ Host Module
By streamlining data collection, simplifying operations, and enabling more proactive response time, Neptune’s intuitive N_SIGHT host module allows your utility to do more with less, providing the flexibility to reallocate staff to different functions or adapt to changes in your workforce over time. The software works in walk-by or mobile reading modes, while turning the data into meaningful information that helps create a smart water network across your utility.
N_SIGHT™ PLUS host module
With Neptune’s N_SIGHT PLUS host module, it’s easy to collect accurate data, analyze it, share it across departments in your utility, and act upon it. The easily customizable software leverages data for advanced analytics, determining what action(s) needs to be taken and pushing this information to the appropriate area of your utility. Perform time-synchronized reads that help track and manage Non-Revenue Water. Analyze customer usage profile data to resolve disputes as well as support water conservation initiatives. And act on immediate priority alarms to more proactively address leaks and backflow events.
