The FlexNet® SmartPoint® 520M Module is a radio transceiver that provides water utilities inbound and outbound access to water measurement and ancillary device diagnostics via radio signal. The SmartPoint 520M is designed for submersible, pit-set environments. With its migratable, two-way communication ability, the M-Series SmartPoint functions as a walk-by/drive-by endpoint, fixed base endpoint, or combination of the two. This flexibility increases utility data collection capabilities and streamlines operations.
The SmartPoint 520M Module utilizes TouchCoupler, the patented Sensus inductive coupling communication platform, to interface with the encoded meter. With TouchCoupler, the SmartPoint 520M Module can connect to the meter using existing two wire AMR installations instead of requiring utilities to access the meter to install a new three-wire connection. This results in a fast, efficient and reliable connection at minimal cost.
