"This step builds on Datamatic's commitment to open-architectured solutions. The FIREFLY Automatic Meter Reading Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting data from water meter or energy metering devices (water, gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing and/or analyzing. System was designed around the idea of delivering best-in-class AMR (1) (Adaptive Multi-Rate) A variable rate speech codec selected by the 3GPP for the 3G evolution of the GSM cellphone system (WCDMA). Using the Algebraic CELP (ACELP) compression technology, AMR provides toll quality sound at transmission rates from 4.75 to 12. functionality while allowing customers complete freedom to choose their metering platform," said Datamatic CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. Ken Kercher.
"We're excited not only to have a 'plug-and-play' AMR solution for the CENTRON but also that users can take advantage of FIREFLY's ProfilePLUS[TM] Usage Profiling capabilities. FIREFLY-equipped CENTRONs will now store more than 169 days of - hourly usage profile data and make it available via walk-by, mobile and fixed collection platforms. This detailed data equips utilities with new tools for settling usage disputes, right-sizing transformers, performing load studies and executing virtual turn-offs."
FIREFLY MIUs can be pre-integrated with the CENTRON or retrofit into existing meters. The installation process requires less than one minute and requires no tools. The FIREFLY unit has an estimated life of 20 to 40 years in the field.
"Over the past few years, solid state meter prices have dropped to the point that they are an attractive option for most utilities," said Datamatic's Channel Sales Director, Matt Downey. "CENTRON users can now benefit from the same AMR and usage profiling functionality that electromechanical The use of electricity to run moving parts. Disk drives, printers and motors are examples. Electromechanical systems must be designed for the eventual deterioration of moving components that wear over time. The first TVs were electromechanical systems (see video/TV history). FIREFLY users have enjoyed for years. We're proud to be able to offer utilities the choice of deploying FIREFLY AMR using an electromechanical or solid-state meter."
