Daily reading of smart water meters
Elster customized a fixed radio network system for one of France's largest water utilities.
Interoperability with existing systems
In the southwest and across North America, utilities choose Elster C700 encoder water meters based on their interoperability with existing AMR/AMI systems. When choosing the Second Source vendor for water meters to be used with an existing system, utilities are choosing Elster for our integral mount options and our commitment to customer service and technical services support.
Meters with moving components have issues with higher than normal water pressure. Our SM700 and evoQ4 water meters with no moving parts are chosen for these conditions.
Meeting environmental standards
Polymer C700 meters are meeting the environmental standards for the no-lead initiatives of major metropolitan areas.
“We have been impressed with the reliability and optimal operations of our previous Elster meters, providing us the confidence to select Elster for all of our advanced metering and AMR initiatives and upgrades.” said Ingeniero Raymundo Cano, technical director at DAPA. The utility is upgrading existing Elster brass based meters with the V110 new co-polymer resin meters, which provide optimal accuracy and performance for smart water metering, and are pre-equipped to support the AMR technology upgrade.
Building on trust
With the installation of 100,000 Elster AMCO Water C700 meters and retrofit kits for the existing Elster meters in its service area, a midwest utility is expanding its existing relationship with Elster. Serving more than 1.5 million people throughout the city and 72 neighboring suburbs, the water department selected the C700 meters for their unparalleled performance, accuracy and ability to seamlessly integrate with the utility’s planned AMI installation.
Meeting the challenge in dense populations
The Elster AMCO C700 is an oscillating piston type water meter with an advanced positive displacement design. The meters will be implemented into the most densely populated city in the northeast’s infrastructure, which supports the efficient and safe delivery of approximately one billion gallons of water daily.
Improving operational costs
To improve the repair and adjustment process of their water distribution system, CCU, a Florida County utility, began testing the Elster Perfection Hydrosert Fittings. When crimping an older polyethylene (PE) tubing service line, many utilities face the need to repair the same area again, at a later date. "We are very pleased with the performance of Elster Perfection’s Hydrosert Fittings and have recommended their use for many applications, including those at neighboring utility locations,” said Stephen Kipfinger, Superintendent of Water Distribution.
