Historically, a mechanical water meter has lost accuracy over its life time as parts wear and its mechanics deteriorate. However, the new Sonata meter from Master Meter is a non-moving parts product utilizing ultrasonic flow measurement sensor technology to help reduce inaccurate water measurement.
As Greg Land, Product Manager for Solid State Measurement with Master Meter, discusses in this Water Online Radio interview, the Sonata meter is Internet-of-Things (IoT) enabled to connect to an AMI system and can measure extreme low flows to help utilities address non-revenue water. It can even alert utilities to water theft in real-time.
