Neptune® E-CODER® )R900i™

Neptune’s E-CODER®) R900i™ combination absolute encoder register/radio frequency meter interface unit (RF MIU) provides two-way communications of advanced smart metering. The E-CODER)R900i ’s interleaved mobile and high-power fixed network messages allow for simple migration from walk-by to mobile to fixed network reading without site visits or reprogramming. From increasing efficiencies to pinpointing possible tamper or water theft to aiding customer service, the data supplied by the E-CODER)R900i can help your utility make better, more confident decisions.


Protect And Expand Your Technology Investments

Neptune® designed the R900® System to make it easy for your utility – installation, everyday use, and expansion for the future without stranded assets. The E-CODER®)R900i™ combination absolute encoder register/radio frequency meter interface unit (RF MIU) is a perfect example of all of the above. Not only does it work with past generations of meters and meter reading systems, but seamless integration is built into this single-unit end-point itself, providing two-way communications of advanced metering data. The E-CODER)R900i’s interleaved mobile and high-power fixed network messages allow for simple migration from mobile to fixed network reading without site visits or reprogramming.


Streamline Operations And Manage Resources

In addition to eliminating the need for programming, the E-CODER)R900ihas no external wires, making installation easier, faster, and less costly; plus it reduces potential vandalism or tamper. As with the rest of the R900 System, the design of the unit is intuitive and user-friendly so that minimal training is required for operation. It’s designed to help manage time, labor, and other resources. The radio frequency transmission of the E-CODER)R900i can save your utility significant amounts of time in terms of both meter reading and billing, and provide f lexibility to reallocate personnel to different tasks or departments depending on your changing workforce needs.

Do More With Detailed, Actionable Data

The types of data your utility can generate through the E-CODER)R900ican take you far beyond a simple meter reading for a monthly bill. Hourly consumption profile information over an account’s last 96 days, along with alerts for leak or backf low, help to proactively identify and resolve customer issues – heading off high bill complaints, reducing delinquent payments, and eliminating write-offs. Using Neptune® 360™ host software, your utility can leverage detailed data from the E-CODER)R900i to balance water produced versus water consumed, group accounts for District Metered Area analysis, and track and manage Non-Revenue Water. From increasing efficiencies to pinpointing possible tamper or water theft to aiding customer service, the data supplied by the E-CODER)R900i can help your utility make better, more confident decisions.
