Remote meter reading
Automatic meter readings (AMR/AMI)
As a water and energy provider you need a flexible solution for remotely reading consumption meters that is tailored to your precise needs. Whether you are interested in a mobile meter reading solution (Automatic Meter Reading – AMR), a high-performance communications network (Advanced Metering Infrastructure – AMI), or a combination of the two, we can assist you with a wide range of communication solutions.
For more than 25 years, Diehl Metering, a technology leader in AMR/AMI, has been using its IZAR RADIO technology to reliably gather data from a wide range of meters in the field and transmit this data to its IZAR software platform. In this way, our solutions realize a continuous data stream - from the measuring device to monitoring, data management and analysis. Obtain accurate reading date values, for example on moving in/out dates, simply and efficiently via mobile readings or a Fixed Network.
In the spirit of multi utility providers, Diehl Metering solutions allow you to read water, thermal energy, gas and electricity meters across all sectors via the same infrastructure. This reduces your costs per metering point and increases overall efficiency.
Carry out Walk-by mobile readings or Drive-by readings at up to 50km/h. Diehl Metering also allows for a Passive Drive-by solution – for example, refuse collection vehicles can easily be fitted with radio receivers for mobile readings of transmitting meters. Collect data from consumption meters with minimal effort, correctly bill for the relevant date and automate tiresome routines. Your customers no longer need to read their own meters or be at home for meter readings. The first step towards fully automated meter reading: Diehl Metering mobile solutions offer you a good-value entry point to smart metering. You can take the next step and upgrading to a fully automated Fixed Network is possible at any time with the existing meter base, even without configuration.
With a Diehl Metering Walk-by/Drive-by solution, you can read all meters for water, thermal energy, gas and electricity by simply driving (or walking) by. IZAR@MOBILE 2 software makes mobile readings simple and intuitive. Simple connection to a radio receiver transforms the IZAR TABLET (or any other tablet) into an efficient meter reading tool.
Optimise your processes
IZAR@MOBILE 2 can be operated fully autonomously as a low-cost starter model. However, in conjunction with our IZAR PLUS Portal or IZAR@NET 2 software from Diehl Metering, you get considerable added value: configuration profiles and tours can be centrally planned, managed and sent to various mobile devices. All data can be encrypted with the central data management software at the push of a button and synchronised with mobile reading devices.
