GSM / GPRS

GSM/GPRS

The HAT-WA-GSM/GPRS is an I/O module specially designed for applications where the pulse/serial output of various metering devices need to be incorporated into a GSM/GPRS network for creating cost effective data acquisition and AMR solutions. The output of corresponding meter is directly connected to IP68 protected AMR gadget, the running count of the consumption is stored in local memory, (Permanent Storage) An open, bi-directional and extensible infrastructure that uses low-cost devices to send and retrieve data from Meters A high-reliability, fault-tolerant and proven network forms the backbone of the solutionSecure, Store and Forward mechanism ensures high data reliability, easy to install, capable of handing expanding network of meters with minimal latency.

Features

  • GSM / GPRS communication capabilities
  • Inbuilt Protocol conversion and Auto Meter Detection
  • Built-in wide range Power Supply
  • Controller for interfacing with meter, local data storage, processing of data
  • Digital I/O for interfacing with external devices
  • Monitoring of digital inputs like tamper status, etc
  • Generating and Monitoring Alerts and Alarms at the meter-end
  • Up to 10 years Battery Life, depending on no.of transmissions per day
  • LoRA

    The Wave-LoRa is an I/O module specially designed for applications where the pulse/serial output of various metering devices need to be incorporated into a LoRa network for creating cost effective data acquisition and AMR solutions. The output of corresponding meter is directly connected to IP68 protected AMR gadget, the running count of the consumption is stored in local memory, (Permanent Storage) An open, bi-directional and extensible infrastructure that uses low-cost devices to send and retrieve data from Meters A high-reliability, fault-tolerant and proven network forms the backbone of the solutionSecure, Store and Forward mechanism ensures high data reliability, easy to install, capable of handing expanding network of meters with minimal latency.

    Technical Data

    The Wave Pay As You Go Token less (PAYGTL) System provides Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), together with the potential for the utility to receive payment for the gas before it is used. The PAYGTL meter differs from the standard AMR offering, in that there is a solenoid valve fitted on the meter inlet. The wave module monitors the customers' account checking the gas consumed against the credit available. Should the account become zero then the gas supply will be shut off. A customer can top up his account at a registered pay facility, by credit card over the phone /online or by direct debit. The display on the module provides the customer with realtime information regarding the credit balance

    Advantages

    • Improves cash flow and reduces cost to the utility
    • No requirement to read the meter
    • Near real time data
    • Remote disconnect for non payment
    • No need to produce a bill
    • Reduction in back office staff
    • Average saving of 15 to 20% per Annum
