The STAR® Network DCU II enhances your AMI network by providing reliable and flexible two-way communication for electric, water, and gas meters.

Our proven, wide-area network (WAN) backhaul options support data-intense applications such real-time pricing, demand response, remote leak detection, and always-on connections to the utility.

Part of the Aclara proven and reliable STAR Network AMI solution, the DCU II transmits and receives data over individual 450- to 470-MHz radio frequencies. Powered by a battery that can be recharged by a solar panel or AC power supply, the DCU time stamps, processes, and stores diagnostic information and data collected from meter transmission units (MTUs). The DCU transmits the data for further processing to a network control computer (NCC) and sends commands and alerts back to the MTUs.
