Monitor My Meter - M3

Maven System's tiny yet powerful RF module is designed for integration with various type of AMR ready water meters ensuring quick time to market. It covers a large area up-to 700m with point-to-point communication. It is possible to further extend the coverage using mesh algorithm. The efficient power management implementation has resulted in providing long lasting battery life of up to 12 years.

Our design expertise and development services have helped meter manufacturers by providing wireless AMR solution using their existing mechanical meters.The design of RF boards is flexible to adapt to different meter requirements. We provide assistance to perform a form-factor cycle to fit the board in existing space of AMR enabled meters, customization of RF board firmware as per meter protocol and input type.
