Encoders Encoders

Badger Meter offers the latest innovations in high resolution encoder technology with the release of the HR-E LCD and HR-E encoders. Our high resolution encoders provide utilities with much more than just a reading. Whether you choose the 9-digit LCD or the 8-dial HR-E encoder, the high resolution encoded output provides leak detection and other critical information through the reading system to help utilities manage their water. High resolution encoders utilize the industry standard communication protocol, and do not require programming or setting adjustments during installation or wire repair. And, through a unique sealing process that eliminates gaskets, Badger Meter encoders are built to withstand harsh environments including flooded pits.

How can your water utility protect present investments in technology while building onto those investments as you need, at your own pace?

Remote Pressure Monitoring System Remote Pressure Monitoring System

Several years ago, Mueller began a journey to develop a user friendly and cost-effective technology to continuously and remotely monitor pressure at any point within a potable water distribution system. The technology involves threading a sensor onto a corporation valve to transmit pressure readings. The pressure sensor, typically installed two (2) per District Metering Area (DMA), reports at user-defined intervals via cellular service and a Mueller-hosted secure web server. Beginning with pressure monitoring, Mueller has created a communications backbone that utilities can integrate into its monitoring systems or use as a stand-alone monitoring platform. This technology is currently available in North America.

    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.
