AMR, AMI and Metering CASE STUDIES

  1. Los Angeles Department Of Water And Power Uses GIS To Improve Water Incident Management
    12/3/2015

    While utilities use sophisticated systems to supply clean water as well as collect and treat wastewater, the effort to manage incidents and outages leaves room for improvement. Water utilities often rely on manual processes to handle customer reports of leaks, loss-of-service or quality issues.

    Located just south of Montgomery, Alabama, the City of Troy is a unique mix of southern small-town charm and big-city amenities. Read the full case study to learn how the City leveraged Sensus’ Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution to gather more data and monitor for issues likes leaks or pipe breaks

  3. Staying On Top of Water In Spite Of Flood
    3/4/2015

    The biggest flood in decades roared through the Village of Johnson City, NY, one day in September 2011, and the water department lost everything, including their office, which was submerged in several feet of water. Working with Neptune Technology Group, Johnson City began installation of its new Neptune meters, along with E-Coder®)R900i™ combination solid state absolute encoder/RF meter interface units.

  4. LADWP Achieves Demand Management Goals With Unique Volumetric Rate Structure, Long-Term Planning
    1/15/2015

    The Department of Water and Power (DWP) serves the City of Los Angeles and some small adjacent areas and is the one of the largest municipal utilities in the nation.

    5/2/2018

    Because of its location in the southwestern U.S., Santa Fe, NM, is known to have a scarce and precious water supply. In 2013, Santa Fe’s Water Division became aware that its drive-by meter reading system was failing. Working with Badger Meter, the city’s Water Division chose to implement the BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution with ORION® Cellular endpoints, as well as E-Series® Ultrasonic meters.

  7. New Electromagnetic Water Meter Technology Improves Accuracy And Reliability
    12/26/2012

    Electromagnetic water meters are becoming more and more popular for bulk measurement of residential and commercial drinking water, especially as pricing and metering gain traction as tools for more efficient use of water and water conservation.

  8. 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.

  9. Evaluating Total Cost Of Ownership Models When Choosing Advanced Metering And Communications Networks
    8/24/2016

    This white paper describes how utilities can apply TCO evaluation, which takes into account on-going operations costs, replacement and lifecycle costs and personnel, as well as initial capital investment, to get a more complete picture of what systems will actually cost over time. These TCO calculations prove that point-to-multipoint fixed-network solutions can provide the best TCO of any competitive system, including manual, drive-by or mesh fixed-network solutions.

  10. E-Coder® And R900® RF Help Data Go Deeper In Ventura County
    8/21/2015

    The majority of the water in the city of Simi Valley, California, is provided by Ventura County Waterworks District 8, serving approximately 26,000 metered connections — 22,000 of which are now read by Neptune’s R900® System.
