    The HR-E LCD encoder has a 9-digit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to show consumption, flow and alarm information. The display automatically toggles between 9-digit and 6-digit consumption, rate of flow and meter model.

  3. AMR System Delivers Outstanding Efficiency While Improving Water Conservation In Pacific Northwest
    2/12/2014

    Public Utility District No. 1 of Skagit County (Skagit PUD) in Washington state was at a crossroads, facing a number of challenges related to its meter reading system. Because the utility was using a touch-read/visual-read system, it was highly dependent on its water meter readers’ acquired route knowledge. Two of the PUD’s three meter readers were planning to retire soon, and it would take at least a year to hire and train new employees to fill their experienced shoes. At the same time, the community was growing at a steady pace, and a significant number of its existing meters were reaching the end of their useful lifecycle.

    Jericho Water District (JWD) is one of the largest water districts in New York, serving 58,000 people through 18,604 residential and commercial service connections on Long Island.

  6. City Upgrades AMI System For Boost
    9/16/2015

    The city of Yakima services approximately 19,000 accounts within 27 square miles in the Yakima Valley. Frequent droughts, above average water loss and inaccurate meters prompted the city to search for a vendor who could provide a turnkey solution complete with a quality product line. The selected vendor also needed to have an endpoint that could withstand the extreme conditions experienced inside their meter pits including high humidity and varying temperatures.

  7. Wingo Water & Sewer Upgrades To ORION® Fixed Network (SE) System From Badger Meter
    3/10/2014

    Located in rural Kentucky, the small town of Wingo may seem like an unlikely candidate to become the first city in the state to employ a complete Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. However, when it came time to upgrade its meter reading system, the city wanted a comprehensive water utility solution and chose the ORION Fixed Network (SE) system from Badger Meter.

  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. Advanced Metering Analytics And Hi-Res Ultrasonic Meters Create A Winning Combination
    2/9/2015

    When Waterworks District 3 of Beauregard Parish, La., began to research new water meters to replace its aging system, it didn’t take long to decide that the BEACON AMA managed solution was the right fit.

  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.
