- Adapting to the needs of small villages as well as large cities
- The remote meter reading system is universal and capable of obtaining and managing up to 24 readings a day per meter
Arson Metering’s remote meter reading system is gaining ground with its installations in all types of municipalities. The great reception that the solution has received reflects is efficacy in the most diverse of conditions. The system allows us to read any type of meter and achieve optimum monitoring of the network. As a result, efficiency has increased and the service provided to citizens has improved, which has resulted in savings of economic and water resources.
Among those municipalities are settlements with different sizes and needs; from regional capitals like Burgos and cities such as Denia, down to small towns such as Alonsótegui in Biscay. They are situated throughout Spain in regions such as Catalonia, the Basque Country, Andalusia, Aragon, the Region of Valencia, Cantabria, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, although there are also some cities in Greece and Saudi Arabia. They are at different stages in terms of installing remote meter reading, but all of them have opted for efficient and sustainable management of their supply network with technology from Arson Metering.
This technology consists of software and a fixed network of equipment that are integrated, and thus provide the control centre with all of the data necessary to monitor the water cycle. The system can take and handle up to 24 readings a day per meter. By setting alerts and analysing the data, they provide added value to consumers: they detect anomalies in the supply network, such as leaks, backflow, spillages on the network etc.
Furthermore, studying the information obtained and the water balances allows us to make decisions to improve efficiency, carry out preventative actions and avoid unnecessary loss of water.
Arson Metering’s remote meter reading system is part of the Smart City concept, of intelligent cities equipped with efficient infrastructure that provides advanced urban services, aimed at saving natural resources In the field of urban water management, their technology provides a unique vertical platform with solution to read and obtain information from all of the meters, regardless of the manufacturer and calibre.
The company works with local councils and network management companies to support them in all of the stages of implementing remote meter reading, adapting the solution to their particular needs. It also provides support in the form of its control centre, where they carry out audits of all of the systems installed, and analyse the data of all of the equipment.
Arson Metering’s remote meter reading solution is the result of their own R&D and innovation, and its effectiveness is proven by the results obtained in the municipalities where it has been installed. According to the company’s estimates, a modern water distribution network has around 20% to 50% leakage, so detecting leaks using the water balance means a wide margin of improvement.
Arson Metering is part of the group IoT Water, a group of technology companies dedicated to developing water management technology.
