Automatic Meter Reading (AMR): Efficiency and Effectiveness

AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) allows routine and reliable data collection from all types of utility meters for billing, troubleshooting, analysis and reporting. It saves on manpower costs and provides accurate billing based on near real-time consumption rather than on unreliable prediction-based estimates. With wireless communications, utility companies can read meters quickly inexpensively and with minimum infrastructure demands. The provider can use the consumption data gathered to offer customer more appealing rates, recommend ways to save energy, and offer value-added services.

The Bacsoft IoT platform is an end-to-end solution for controlling automated meter reading for billing and data collection that scales to tens of thousands endpoints.

The Bacsoft solution features the Smart Communications Controller, which simply plugs into any type of gas or electric meter. Battery-operated when power fails, the system supports a variety of interfaces including analog, 4-20mA, Digital, RS232, Modbus and others. These provide maximum flexibility for designing and customizing a remote monitoring and alarm solutions that collects data in near real-time.

The Bacsoft IoT cloud manages communications, collects the data for analysis, and provides alerts and alarms. Fully customizable web and mobile applications along with a simple SCADA integration provide full control anytime, anywhere.
