On Demand Webinar | AMR Options

Posted by Helen Maycock

AMR Options

A key element to delivering reliable and accurate metering and billing is the Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system. Whereas heat meters are largely commoditised the AMR area is not, with lots of different options, each with benefits and drawbacks.

The choice of AMR will depend on the type of building, heat network, what you want to achieve from your heat meter readings and your approach to pay-as-you-go (PAYG) and smart metering.

This session will explore AMR options and the application to help you select the right AMR system for your heat networks.

The key points covered in the webinar are:

1. What are we trying to achieve?
2. History – manual to automatic
3. Meter data management
4. Types of AMR

  • PAYG based systems
  • Non PAYG based systems
