Advanced Metering Analytics
Beyond management of meter data, Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) transforms reading data into actionable intelligence for proactive decision making. AMA provides increased visibility, efficiency, and faster notifications and resolution of issues.
Automated Meter Reading
With an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) or mobile system, ORION endpoints transmit meter reading and event data via radio frequency to a mobile receiver or transceiver when the device is within range of the endpoint’s signal during drive-by or walk-by reading. Mobile reading software collects data and synchronizes with BEACON AMA hosted software.
Cellular/Fixed Network Solutions
Fixed Network Solutions use secure, commercial cellular or proprietary communication networks that provide near real-time meter data to the analytics system, enabling proactive management of the operation and process improvement.
Electromagnetic Flow Meters
Electromagnetic Flow Meters manage critical flow applications to improve accuracy, decrease system maintenance and meet the demands of challenging liquid conditions. This volumetric flow meter does not have any moving parts and is ideal for wastewater applications or any dirty liquid that is conductive or water-based.
Encoders convert flow data into an electronic format for storage and transmission to AMR/AMI/AMA endpoints and industrial network systems. Badger Meter offers the latest innovation in both mechanical and electronic high resolution encoders.
Nutating Disc Meters
Nutating disc meters are the most common and accurate type of positive displacement meters. The simple and reliable operating principle allows water to flow into the chamber, which causes the disc to nutate. Each disc nutation represents a fixed quantity of water, so the total flow is calculated by the total number of nutations.
Badger Meter offers a wide range of instrumentation devices that can be mounted directly to a meter. Registers are available in both mechanical and electronic models. Analog, pulse or encoder type transmitters produce electronic output for radio transmitters, reading storage devices and data logging devices.
Turbine Flow Meters
Turbine flow meters use the mechanical energy of the liquid to rotate a rotor in the flow stream. The rotational speed of the rotor is directly proportional to the velocity of the fluid travelling through the meter. These meters are used in multiple industries to reliably measure the velocity of a variety of liquids, gases and vapors.
Ultrasonic Flow Meters
Ultrasonic flow meters are inferential meters that uses ultrasonic technology to measure the velocity of an acoustically conductive liquid moving through it. There are two types of ultrasonic flow meter technologies: Doppler shift and transit-time.
Transit-time measures the time differential between signals sent upstream and downstream. The differential is directly proportional to the velocity of the water. Transit-time meters are best used for measuring the flow of clean liquids and, as a result, are the most popular type of ultrasonic meter. Doppler shift measures the difference in frequency of the sound wave reflected off gas bubbles or particles in the flow stream and is suitable for aerated or dirty liquids.
