High Resolution Encoders


The High Resolution 8-dial Encoder (HR-E®) from Badger Meter uses a non-contact field-proven light emitting diode technology to provide a high resolution 8-digit reading while at the same time eliminating friction and wear of traditional mechanical encoders. The HR-E communicates using the industry standard ASCII communication protocol to provide high resolution encoded output.


HR-E Dial FaceHow to read the HR-E Encoder
The standard encoder output of the HR-E is 8 digits. Though the encoder output is 8-digit resolution, the reading resolution sent to the reading software is dependent on the endpoint that the HR-E is connected to. The How to Read HR-E tool displays the reading at the encoder, the reading from the endpoint technology and the reading that is sent to the billing system.

HR-RED More Info Less Info

The High Resolution Remote Electronic Display (HR-RED) is designed to provide remote visual readings when connected directly to Badger Meter high resolution products: HR-E®, HR-E LCD, HR-E LCD 4-20 encoders, or E-Series® Ultrasonic meters. The HR-RED
is used to read compatible encoder products that are not easily accessible or are in difficult to read locations. Installations such as those inside houses or buildings, meter vaults, or dangerous industrial locations are ideal for the HR-RED.
