Yes! We have Pulse-Output Water Meters that have a pulse output that can be read remotely.  For each unit of water that flows by the meter produces an electrical pulse that can be measured from a distance.  The total water use can always be read on the face of the meter as well - as a standalone device.


Spec Sheets: http://www.ekmmetering.com/information/spec-sheets.html




Our EKM-Omnimeter Pulse v.4 electric meters have the ability to read basic, 2-wire pulse output from the water meters.  These electric meters can accept the input of up to 3 pulse output devices (such as these water meters).

 

You can read the EKM OmniMeter Pulse v.4 on the face, or set it up to be read with your computer.  The remote read is a simple RS-485, 2 wire system which allows the meter string to be read from up to 4000 feet away.  This string of meters can then be connected to one of our EKM Push units, plugged into the internet, and from there you can read your meters over the internet from anywhere in the world.  If you need to go short range wireless, you can wirelessly bridge the hardwired RS-485 network at any point using our 485Bee wireless mesh.


You can use our EKM Push system to make this data available easily via the Cloud.  The EKM Push can be connected to an internet connection or even cellular modem as long as you have a way to plug into its RJ45 ethernet jack.


If you're using a v.4 Omnimeter and EKM Push system to read your water meter(s), then you can use Encompass.io to read your water meter data. This is our free online software option which is currently a beta offering.

Alternatively you could have a computer running on site with the Dash software running on it.  You could connect the Omnimeter Pulse v.4 to this computer via the iSerial or our $25 USB Converter.  You could set the Dash software to email you monthly or daily, etc., reports of your usage.

The image below shows the wired connections that are necessary for remote water metering. In reality these wired connections will be extended over further distances (up to 200 feet for the pulse output wires coming from the water meter, up to 4000 feet for the RS485 wires going to the EKM Push gateway). Keep in mind that up to 3 water meters can be connected to the v.4 Omnimeter.
