Remote Water Meter Reading - Touch Reading and Visual Remotes
We have several products for remote meter reading. If you have water meter located in a place that is difficult to read, such as a basement, tenant apartment, or underground meter pit, a wired remote allows easy meter reading without actually being at the meter. There are two major types of remote wired meter reading, Touch pad based reading, and visual remotes. Both use the same encoder output water meter registers. For wireless systems, see our listings for AMR and AMI Systems
Visual remotes like the VL-9 display the reading from the outside of the building, wired to the water meter encoder. The VL-9 display has a button that displays the current meter reading when tapped. Anyone can read the meter remotely. The reading can be written down, entered in reading software or read with an OCR capable reading device such as the DataZeo meter reading app. Due to potential inaccuracies of pulse based meters and remotes, we only deal with absolute encoder based remote displays.
