MUELLER SYSTEMS: A Smart Grid Communications System for Water Management

mueller a smart grid communications system for water managementA cost-effective and innovative new option for building AMR/AMI smart grid communications for water management is now available for utilities: The Mi.Hydrant interface unit from Mueller Systems is an enclosed transceiver that replaces the pumper cap of existing fire hydrants and provides multi-path RF coverage. It stores meter data in internal memory and transmits it to other devices within the Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities AMI system.

 

When employed in a multi-path configuration, the interface extends its two-way network coverage by relaying data between meters equipped with the units.

 

Utilities can reduce equipment and labor costs, and eliminate the need to navigate the procedures, politics and logistics of locating and installing additional structures on which to place communication devices.

The FCC-compliant Mi.Hydrant features open architecture, so while ideally deployed in a fire hydrant from Mueller Co., it can also be used with other brand fire hydrants. This enables utilities to transition in a scaled, cost-effective manner.
