Advanced flow measurement technology with state-of-the-art Smart Metering functionality.

Elster has announced the introduction of a new range of smart water meters. The V200 and V210 hybrid meters represent the latest innovation from Elster in its residential Smart Meter product portfolio. Elster intends to introduce this technology in the UK, Ireland and France and has received interest from other European countries.

By upgrading the leading V200 and V210 range of volumetric water meters with integrated electronic registers, incorporating advanced data features and two-way radio communication, Elster combines its latest flow measurement technology with Smart Metering functionality, producing a hybrid solution that enables utilities to focus more effectively on water resource management and consumer engagement.

Easy to install and commission, the V200 and V210 hybrid meters are fully water proof and incorporate installation options to support improved communication range even in the harshest of environments. Absolute meter readings ensure data integrity, while advanced data features such as meter operation monitoring, status alarms, water usage profiling and tariff management provide additional information to the consumer directly or via a wireless in-home display.

“The message from our customers is clear. They want Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) that incorporates a flow measurement sensor at its core. We believe that the V200 and V210 product range, with the proven performance of a large installed base worldwide, offers the optimum solution. Combining an extended, accurate, operating flow range with the means to analyse and communicate management data efficiently ensures that every drop of water really does count,” said Ian Holmes-Higgin, global product manager of volumetric meters for Elster’s water business unit. “Enabling the meter to conduct data analysis and profiling removes the need for continuous communication, maximising operational life and increasing the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the entire system,” he added.
