A single radio frequency unit, Neptune’s R900® MIU features an interleaved, high-power, 1-watt fixed network message that reduces infrastructure costs while allowing reading in any mode – walk-by, mobile, or fixed network – without separate reading systems, site visits, or any type of MIU reprogramming or reconfiguration. Available in both wall and pit mount configurations, the R900® MIU greatly improves access to meter readings, and delivers detailed consumption information as well as alerts for leak or backflow, helping your utility more proactively identify and resolve customers’ questions.
As part of Neptune’s R900® System, the R900® meter interface unit (MIU) was designed for flexibility. Like its fellow system components, the R900 MIU works seamlessly with prior generations of equipment. At the same time, it allows your utility to incorporate innovations as you need. A single radio frequency unit that can transmit meter reading data using any reading method – mobile or fixed network – the R900 MIU never has to be reprogrammed. That makes migrating to new technologies simple whenever your utility is ready to implement them. When it’s time to add new features or functionality, you can do it at your own pace, confident of continual system support without stranded assets.
With the pressures your utility faces, Neptune® knows you don’t have time, personnel, water, or revenue to
waste. That’s why we designed the R900 MIU and the rest of the system for ease of use. In addition, the R900
MIU’s interleaved, high-power, 1 Watt fixed network message reduces infrastructure costs while allowing reading
in any mode – without separate reading systems, site visits, or any type of MIU reconfiguration. The R900 MIU
provides fixed network transmission capability at all times, while it also transmits readings for walk-by or
mobile methods. Making operations even easier, the user-friendly, intuitive R900 System design requires only
minimal training, providing you f lexibility to adapt to changes in your workforce and reallocate staff to
different departments as needed.
Neptune’s R900 MIU greatly improves access to meter readings, while delivering detailed consumption profile information as well as alerts for leak or back flow, helping your utility more proactively identify and resolve customers’ questions. This accurate, timely data can be used to head off high bill complaints, reduce delinquent payments, and eliminate write-offs. Because detailed data logging information from the last 96 days is always available, just waiting to be transmitted by the R900 MIU when needed, personnel can take care of a customer’s issue then and there, in a single site visit. Not only can the data boost efficiency and customer service, but it will also help your utility make better-informed decisions going forward.
