AMI, AMR, and Metering Features

  1. Lead-Free 2014: Guidelines For Compliance
    1/7/2014

    It was a long buildup to the federal lead-free rule, characterized by some last-minute changes, but the moment has finally arrived.

  2. 50+ Years With Neptune And Building On A Decade of R900 Technology
    3/4/2015

    The Public Works Utilities of Billings, Montana, began their partnership with Neptune Technology back in the 1950s and was an early adopter of Neptune’s ARB® absolute encoder meter reading technology in the 1960s.

  3. What The Water Sector Could Learn From The Electric Side
    3/17/2015

    Each year, the nation wastes an estimated two trillion gallons, or about 14 to 18 percent, of its treated water through leaks alone. That’s a lot of water – enough to fill over three million Olympic-size swimming pools.

  4. The Free Pathway To The Smart Grid For Water
    9/20/2016

    The water sector is undergoing structural shifts that will demand changes to the way in which we operate if we are to meet our water challenges in the future.  Water volatility is increasing. 

  5. Accurately Measuring Network Leakage
    6/26/2015

    The pressures of supplying a growing global population mean that the world’s water supplies need to be managed more closely than ever.

  6. Smart Antenna Technology Enhances AMI Network Reliability
    3/7/2016

    Advancements targeting the challenges related to a flooded meter pit environ­ment have occurred slowly over the years, with limited success.

  7. Real-Time Predictive Analytics For Smarter Smart Water Infrastructure
    5/26/2015

    Are you confused by your smart water system? New tools help utilities make sense of data and finally realize the potential of smart water infrastructure.

  8. How Advanced Metering Infrastructure Controls Water Losses
    11/7/2016

    Leakage is one of the primary concerns for water utilities worldwide, yet North American investment in water loss has, historically, not addressed the problem with sufficient urgency or expertise. Slowly, the regulatory lag to efficiently control leakage is beginning to shift, however.

  9. New AMR System Improves Efficiency, Conservation, Customer Service And Revenue For Coeur d’Alene
    9/20/2013

    The City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, had been using a drive-by Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system to read all of its meters since 2010, but according to Rob Stark, utility supervisor for the City of Coeur d’Alene Water Department, it wasn’t realizing the full benefits with its existing system.

  10. Smart Networks Smoothing Supply Of Water
    4/20/2016

    With increasing and urbanizing population, extreme weather events happening with greater frequency, aging infrastructure and work forces, more demanding customers, and significant revenue constraints, it is becoming increasingly difficult for water utilities to ensure that supply consistently meets demand.
