AMI, AMR, and Metering Features

  1. Making The Most Of AMI

    The notion of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), if not its practice, has become ubiquitous in the water industry. It’s hard to escape the feeling that following the evolution from manual to drive-by metering, the power and efficiency of AMI will soon become a utility standard.

  2. White Paper: Water Loss Detection Via Genetic Algorithm Optimization-Based Model Calibration

    Identifying how much water is being lost from water networks and where the losses are occurring is of great importance to water utilities both for operational and planning reasons as well as for reputation

  3. Article: ABB Flowmeters Help Cut Water Leaks By A Half Billion Gallons/Year In UK

    Electromagnetic flowmeters from ABB are playing a key role in cutting water leakage for the Ministry of Defense (MoD) in England, with reductions of 60% achieved at some sites. Leakage has already dropped by about 528 million (US) gallons per year across more than 1,500 MoD sites where C2C Services manages water and waste utility assets. By ABB

  4. Article: Preventing Premature AMR Utility Meter Replacement
    The current economic climate is impacting the utility industry, as reduced economic activity is dampening revenue growth. In response, utility managers must aggressively seek out ways to cut costs by increasing productivity, cost efficiencies, and accelerating billing cycles in order to improve cash flow.

  5. AMI Steps Up Efficiency Without Feet On The Street

    Begun in 1882 as a station along the Missouri, Kansas, & Texas (MKT or Katy) Railroad, Hewitt, Texas encompasses 6.86 square miles south of Waco.

  6. Flow Measurement Management Enables Total Visibility Of Water Use

    Advancements in submetering and cloud-based data analytics help reduce consumption, lower costs, and improve operational efficiency.

  7. Connecting To The Future: Where Will Digitally Linked Devices Take The Water Industry?

    You may hear talk of an emerging “smart grid” in the sector. Maybe you’ve heard of a tomorrow dependent on the Internet of Things (IoT). Whatever they choose to call it, advocates will agree: a network of digitally connected devices is emerging, which will pool data together and funnel it to a single source, painting a more complete picture of how water is used. And soon, it will be everywhere.

  8. Smart Water/Wastewater Technologies Require Comprehensive Wireless M2M Communications

    Organizations with geographically dispersed assets, such as those in the water/wastewater utility industries, are continuously developing and implementing new ways to monitor and control all aspects of their business.

  9. Are You Ready For 'Lead Free' 2014?

    The clock is ticking, counting down to the new “lead free” mandate, effective Jan. 4, 2014, which will be considerably stricter than the current federal requirement. Under the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, signed Jan. 4, 2011, “lead free” will be redefined as “not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures.”

  10. Smarter Meters Help Plug Leaks In Bayonne, NJ — Over 800 Detected

    Water is relatively inexpensive in the context of your overall household budget. On average, the cost of water is less than a penny a gallon.  That makes it all too easy to waste.
