ZENNER present their new electronic add-on module for precision scanning of water meters by electronic pulse generator, M bus or wireless M-bus.

ZENNER present their new electronic add-on module for precision scanning of water meters by electronic pulse generator, M bus or wireless M-bus.

The measurement for water is becoming smarter: ZENNER has developed a module which can be particularly accurate water meter read from a distance. EDC stands for “Electronic Data Capture“. The great benefit of our new EDC scanning module is that it transmits precisely the meter reading using electronic pulser, M-bus or radio.

The EDC wireless module will comply with Open Metering Specifications. Said standards ensure that e.g. all OMS meters will be compatible with Smart Meter Gateways regardless of maker. This is an especially important aspect for all operators of metering systems from future proofing and investment reliability standpoints.

This allows the integration of ZENNER meters with EDC module easily into smart grids. The electronic system detects how often the modulator disc of the meter turns as water flows through. It also detects the direction of counter rotation, i.e. whether it is running backwards.

ZENNER’s new EDC module stands for a maximum of flexibility as it is on the one hand available for varying types of meter with modulator disc including single jet, multi jet and piston type meters and on the other it offers users a choice of different readout technologies.

The EDC module is added ex works to meters ordered with EDC modules and set as the client specifies. It can also be ordered separately as an optional extra. The EDC module will be supplied as a wireless version initially from the first quarter of 2014. Electronic pulser and M bus modules will be available shortly thereafter.
