PAYGT-RFID

The AMR Pay As You Go Token (PAYGT) System, provides an energy supplier with the facility to receive payment for the Water before it is used. The PAYGT solution differs from the standard AMR offering. A solenoid valve fitted on the inlet to the meter, and the AMR module has a display. The AMR module is the customers energy account. It permits Water to flow when there is credit, and shuts the valve when there is not. Each meter is married to a Token (swipe card). The token is the customer's means of applying credit to the meter. The card can be “topped up” at the registered charge points where money is exchanged for a volume of Water. The amount of Water is loaded onto the card. The card is then swiped across the PAYGT module and the credit is transferred. The display on the AMR module provides real time data showing the credit balance, the Emergency credit available, valve status, and an indication of active alarms. The customer information is stored in the Cloud data base, and can be viewed by the energy supplier or the customer over the internet or via a mobile phone App.
