Advanced Gas Metering
Two-way communications for gas meters
Landis+Gyr's gas solution offers two-way communications capabilities over the Gridstream Network. Communications are supported through the implementation of an integrated communications module fitting most major meter manufacturer’s products. The communications module can be retrofitted to existing meters, providing efficient field upgradeability.
The solution offers advanced measurement and alarm capabilities to confirm the module is operating properly while identifying suspicious module activity. Key supported alarms include:
- Tamper detection
- Zero consumption
- Cut wire detection
- Low battery
The module’s advanced two-way functionality and alarms are managed and stored in the Command Center application, providing accessible and timely information in a user friendly format.
The two-way communications capability delivers advanced features such as:
- On request reads for last-time meter reads or service requests
- Communications module firmware upgrades and configurations to eliminate costly site visits
- Network connectivity confirmation assuring continuous network continuity
