SKU: WM-I2 Categories: ,

Connected to the meter’s standard pulse output (SO) or pulse generator, it acts as a pulse signal counter / data logger and transmitter modem. It collects the consumption values and sends the data through the NB-IoT cellular network to the data center, or HES.

This device can be used to read consumption data from any meter with a pulse output.

This smart water modem has a standalone and intermittent operation. It reads the meter data in “sleep mode”, wakes up at preconfigured periods and uses the NB-IoT network to transfer the data to the Head-end System (HES) via FTP or TCP/IP in XML or JSON formats using MQTT or LwM2M protocols.

The NB-IoT technology allows for ultra low-power consumption which means the internal battery provides a long, 10 years lifetime for the device, and deep penetration into concrete manholes that gives access to the meters installed on pipiles, buildings, basements or cellars.

In order to deliver data at optimal frequency the product can be customized with highly configurable data transmission and threshold alarm settings.

With the over the air (OTA) protocol, the device can be configured and the firmware can be updated remotely without the need to send experts to the field, using our WM-I Term software.
