Amr Remote Reading Water Meters
GPRS Remote Meter Reading Systems
System includes AMR Meters, Collectors (RF and GPRS) and Central Service System via Internet. Fixed Network System remotely collects meter data by using RF (Radio Frequency) and send them to Central Computer System via GPRS.
Benefits of Fixed Network System
The Fixed Network System provides easy to use, quicker and low-cost reading ability. The system may be managed everywhere that has internet connection. Water meter states may be observed everywhere regardless of current location. Another benefit of the system the improved customer service. Customers can manage their own consumption records such as invoice, debts, payment etc. from internet with their passwords. Baylan AMR Remote Meter Reading System works on RF and GPRS technologies and does not use any complex wiring. System is cost competitive when compared to other AMR technologies.
Operating Structure Of Mobile Reading System
- Receiving the meter readings
- Transmitting readings to central system
- Customer access via internet connection
- Remote control of valves according to latest payment/debt states
- Billing the consumption
Benefits of the AMR System
It is much more easier and faster to read water meters. As the reading costs fall, the benefits start rising. The benefits of the system include reduced labor costs, easier collection of water meter bills, effective management of consumers records such as payments, debts, invoices and valve states.
The system has no limitation of the quantity of meters to be installed in the AMR network. The officers have the chance of acting faster in case of a damage or illegal consumption detected in the water supply infrastructure. The revenue increases as the management ability rises. Complete digital system avoids reading errors. Water consumption can be observed and managed reliably. Baylan Remote Meter Reading System users may receive the consumption state of any consumer instantly.
LoRa “Internet of Things” (IoT)
LoRa is a modulation technique that provides significantly Long Range than competing technologies. LoRa is a popular Internet of Things (IoT) technology. System includes LoRa based meters, LoRa Gateways and Central Service System via Internet. LoRa Gateways collect LoRa modulated meter data and send them to the Central Service System via Internet. LoRa (Long Range) technology has a range of approximately up to 5 km depending on the position of the meter and gateway. It does not affected by noise. Each LoRa Gateway has capacity of 1000 meters depending on transmission period. They are designed to be used in long range star topology architecture. Gateways has capable of adjusting power consumption according to the distance between gateway and meter. LoRa does not depend on any other system. System is cost competitive when compared to other other IoT technologies. Gateways have IP68 protection class.
- Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN)
- Bidirectional • Simple Star Network Topology
- Low data rate
- Low cost & Long battery life
Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is a new way of communicating with “things” that require small amounts of data, over long periods, in hard to reach places. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), also known as LTE Cat NB1, is a Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology that works virtually anywhere. It connects devices more simply and efficiently on already established mobile networks, and handles small amounts of fairly infrequent 2-way data, securely and reliably.
- Very low power consumption
- Excellent extended range in buildings and underground
- Easy deployment into existing cellular network architecture
- Network security & reliability
- Lower component cost
