Advanced Metering Infrastructure Project
Innovative. Efficient. Conserving Resources.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), allows water utilities to gather utility usage data from its customers, both residential and commercial, without manually reading meters. The utility improves services and saves money by minimizing the costs associated with reading individual residential and commercial meters while allowing more time to do other required maintenance activities. In addition, AMI improves data accuracy and helps identify anomalies.
The FlexNet System communicates with the meters to provide system status, meter readings, and includes programming to alarm for suspected leaks. This provides an environmental benefit for reducing and promptly identifying loss of water and associated waste in energy for pumping the water as well as eliminating the pollution associated with driving meter reading vehicles.
