ORION® Water Endpoints DatasheetSource: Badger Meter
The ORION Smart Endpoint (SE) is a full functioning, two-way water endpoint for use in fixed network or mobile meter reading deployments. Once installed, ORION SE endpoints initially operate in mobile priority mode and will automatically transition to fixed network priority mode of operation once ORION network gateway transceivers and ReadCenter® software are deployed. ORION SE endpoints in fixed network priority mode will also transmit a mobile message to allow handheld or mobile data collection of the utility’s metering data at any time. An ORION SE endpoint will automatically transition back to mobile priority mode if the network is disrupted for a period of time.
The ORION Migratable Endpoint (ME) is a full functioning, two-way water endpoint for mobile applications with the capability of migrating to fixed network mode to support future utility growth. In addition to providing the current and snapped daily reading, the ORION ME endpoint two-way functionality allows users to capture data profile information wirelessly, without having to access the endpoint, during the normal reading process. An ORION ME endpoint is easily upgraded to a full-featured ORION SE endpoint through a software license.
