An automatic meter reading (AMR) system for monitoring energy and water consumption is a key IoT technology of today’s water supply, energy networks and energy efficiency systems. Our AMR system consists of reliable, flexible and proven IoT products (hardware) that enable advanced metering and accompanying software – our custom-developed web application for energy data management – “AMR Emasys” .
Our IoT metering solution can measure the consumption of water, electricity, gas, thermal energy (heating), steam, fuel oil and the production of electrical or thermal energy produced by solar panels. It can also measure and collect other relevant measurement values such as outdoor and indoor temperature, relative humidity (rH), flow, pressure, air quality (VOC and CO2), etc. all in order to increase the energy efficiency of your system.
How does an AMR system work in practice?
METERS AND SENSORS
Smart meters already have the ability to connect to telemetry (AMR) systems whereas AMR compatible meters require the addition of a pulse reader and offer a lower cost solution. Meters reveal data on energy or water consumption.
AUTOMATIC METER READING MODULE
This compact device mounted close to the meter collects data from the meter using a communication protocol such as wired M-Bus, wireless M-Bus OMS, Mod-bus, LoRaWAN, Sigfox or NB-IoT technology.
With the M-bus and LoRaWan protocols, the AMR module and sensors communicate directly with a central unit, also located at the user’s facility, and collects data from all metering points and sends them on.
Hourly meter readings are automatically sent to our server visa GSM or Ethernet, where our web application AMR Emasys collects, stores and processes the data.
Keep track of all your energy and water consumption in one place by logging into our web app for energy management “AMR Emasys” from any computer, smartphone or tablet with internet access.
The technical solution
We offer the most effective technical solution using available IoT technologies.
We take into account your needs and expectations and the requirements of the facility or area.
Our AMR system is completely independent of your business’s communication infrastructure.
All data is encrypted and there is no connection between your facility and its consumption data during data transfer.
Continuous monitoring of real-time consumption
