Hemet, CAFlow Connect—April 12, 2017 McCrometer, a flow meter manufacturer based out of Hemet, CA, USA is featuring Smart OutputTM for use with their line of electromagnetic insertion and full bore flow meters.  Smart OutputTM is compatible with Sensus and Itron systems, which makes these mag meters plug and play into larger AMI and AMR systems.  McCrometer has an electromagnetic flow solution for nearly every application – line sizes 4”-138”: hot tap insertion meters or full bore type, battery/solar or AC/DC powered.  And their entire line of mag meters is AMI compatible with Smart OutputTM.

McCrometer’s more than 60 year history of building advanced flow metering solutions has seen AMI develop into a tool that more and more utility managers are adopting to meet the challenges of district metering and reducing non-revenue water.  As AMI has become more widespread, it is critical that utility managers are able to connect flow measurement points across their distribution systems with meters that work seamlessly with their chosen AMI system. McCrometer’s Smart OutputTM marries this need with their electromagnetic flow meters, which have been the meter of choice for municipalities around the globe.

Brittany Halterman, Senior Product Manager for McCrometer, says “Smart Output mag meters from McCrometer are designed with a highly intelligent module in their transmitters that is similar to a communication protocol.  This capability allows McCrometer mag meters to transmit data on a schedule or on demand, as well as receive diagnostic queries to ensure or update meter operation.  With McCrometer’s Smart Output mag meters, there’s no need for technicians to gather flow data manually or check meter status.”

Flow metering and AMI system infrastructure are typically some of the largest investments for which a utility manager budgets, so they want to receive the maximum value and ROI to help them make their most important decisions.  McCrometer flow meters with Smart OutputTM AMI compatibility will give utilities the ability to manage flow in their distribution systems in a whole new way.
