Neptune® R900® Belt Clip Transceiver (BCT)

With two-way communications to the R900® MIU, the R900® Belt Clip Transceiver (R900 BCT) eliminates meter access issues and speeds up retrieval of valuable data logging information. In addition, its exceptional radio frequency (RF) throughput reduces meter reading time, especially in high-density environments. Pairing the R900 BCT with a handheld (or a mobile device running Neptune software), your personnel can perform impromptu service calls in the field and address customer service issues onsite without a separate truck roll.


Automate Measurement to Activate Operational Efficiency

As part of the Neptune® R900® System, the R900® Belt Clip Transceiver (R900 BCT) is your utility personnel’s partner in mobile meter reading and in-field customer support and is now iOS compatible.The R900 BCT’s two-way communications to the R900® MIU eliminate meter access issues and speed up retrieval of valuable data logging information – up to 96 days of historical hourly consumption data from an individual account. In addition, its exceptional radio frequency (RF) throughput reduces meter reading time, especially in high-density environments. Field personnel can even read R900s while performing maintenance or other tasks when taking advantage of the R900 BCT’s unattended operations mode. These automated features ensure you collect accurate data that can be turned into meaningful information – to help improve accuracy, identify hidden causes of loss, and optimize the efficiency of your operations

Move Ahead with Backward Compatibility and Forward Innovation

The R900 BCT, as with the rest of the Neptune R900 System, works with past generations of equipment while remaining flexible to incorporate innovations as needed. The R900 BCT maintains support to read previous generations of R900 MIUs yet introduces powerful software-defined radio (SDR) technology to support the new advanced two-way features of the R900 System. Now, the R900 BCT is capable of reading electric, bubble-up ERT® devices and processing SCM or SCM+ message files that these ERT devices transmit. This gives utilities the freedom of equipping with just the R900 BCT to read both water and electric meters. So, go ahead and phase in new features and equipment at your own pace with confidence that Neptune will support your future needs without leaving you with stranded assets.

Present Consumption Data in the Field for Proactive Customer Service

Simplified access to critical information means your utility can provide even more proactive customer service. Pairing the R900 BCT with a handheld device or a mobile device running Neptune software, your personnel can maximize their efficiency in the field, with the flexibility to perform impromptu service calls and address customer service issues on-site without a separate truck roll1. With the data literally in hand, they can share data logging graph information with homeowners. This on-the-spot, on-site presentment of how much water they used and when, helps head off customer complaints regarding high water bills, reduce delinquencies, and avoid write-offs.
