The mobile data collector provides fast, accurate automatic water meter reading to preserve resources and streamline operational efficiencies. Critical data is transformed into actionable information to help identify hidden causes of loss and optimize operational efficiency. Access to consumption data and alerts of leaks and backflow conditions aid in proactively addressing high bill complaints, reducing delinquent payments, and eliminating write-offs.
The R900® System is designed to easily accommodate and support past generations of meters, encoder registers, and data collectors – preserving your asset investments and offering the flexibility to incorporate future innovations as needed.
Strapped to the seat of your utility vehicle, the MRX920 reads up to fifty (50) meters simultaneously as your
meter reader cruises down the streets. And in conjunction with the routes-integrated/Esri®-powered MX900
mapping, meter reading is automatic, fast, and effortless for your meter readers, accurate with less manpower
deployed for your utility.
The MRX920 comes with Bluetooth capability, so your meter readers have the option of wirelessly updating routes and uploading the latest readings to the host system remotely and in near real-time without having to return to the office1,2.
Additionally, Neptune has ported its well-established R900 radio frequency (RF) architecture to the latest release of MRX920 using software-defined radio (SDR) technology. This means all Neptune data collection systems have a common, core code base which translates to faster availability of new features and functionalities for your utility.
The R900® System is designed to easily accommodate and support past generations of meters, encoder registers, and data collectors – while at the same time giving your utility the flexibility to incorporate future innovations as needed. The MRX920 is no exception, providing seamless compatibility with all generations of R900® MIUs. Its industry-leading performance can save days or even weeks for your meter reading routes, and new features within itsMRX920™ software, such as Esri®-powered mapping and wireless mobility, make valuable data available in real time as you read your system. Feel free to phase in these new features and equipment at your own pace, secure in the knowledge that Neptune® will support your future needs without leaving you with stranded assets.
While the R900® System always allows your utility to migrate forward to implement fixed network data collectors, or backward to use RF technology for individual off-cycle readings or data logging, using the MRX920™ and MX900™ software as a part of your system makes for fast and simple access to information that can provide effective resolutions to customers’ water-related issues. With detailed consumption data in hand while working in the field, along with proactive alerts of leaks and backflow conditions, you can enhance customer service. In the process, you can even preempt high bill complaints, reduce delinquent payments, and eliminate write-offs.
