AMR

Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is the technology used for automatic collection of consumption, diagnostic and status data from water meter or energy metering devices and transferring the same to a central database for billing, troubleshooting and analyzing. Utthunga provides solution to power distribution companies who are facing challenges with collection of data from the HT meters. Manual processes involved high cost of labor and frequent errors. There were additional challenges related to missing current data from remote locations.

Utthunga has implemented AMI solution based on IIoT platform Javelin to address the challenges of a customer in a much more effective way. The components of Javelin deployed were uConnect (data acquisition unit) and uViz (Visualization and Analytics). The meters from various geographical locations sent data to a central repository for storage and further integration with the billing system.
