A NSW Gas supplier was required to install infrastructure including metering in a number of large apartment block developments across Sydney. Attaching a communications device to each meter in the building did not seem a logical option.
Intelimax Serial Modem
Maxon presented a solution that would streamline the communications process and alleviate hundreds of meters transmitting data from the same property. Maxon provided an Intelimax+ modem for testing and with additional functionality added to the firmware was able to collect gas and water data simultaneously from meters and send all of the data back to the company for analytics and billing purposes. This provided a significant cost saving for our client and additionally, it meant reducing the workload for service technicians and physical data collection.
