What is a Neptune E coder R900?

What is a Neptune E coder R900?

The E-Coder)R900i by Neptune is an integrated register that contains both the E-Coder® and R900® technologies in one register that collects meter reading data. It then transmits the data for collection by the meter reader.

What does a Neptune E coder do?

The E-CODER® is an electronic absolute encoder register designed for use with Neptune’s Automatic Reading and Billing (ARB®) System. This register operates with Neptune’s R900® and R450™ MIUs, providing advanced features such as leak, backflow, and tamper detection.

How do you read the Neptune E coder register?

  1. To read your Neptune E-Coder® register, expose the solar panel to sunlight or shine a bright light (i.e. flashlight or cell phone flashlight), and the display will activate.
  2. features an advanced application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design using nonvolatile memory technology.
  3. 35-day window is in effect.

What is an e-coder?

A true absolute encoder, the E-CODER® is the foundation of a smart water meter. In addition to all the features of a basic encoder register, when the E-CODER is connected to an R900® or R450™ RF MIU, it provides value-added PLUS features – leak, tamper, and reverse flow detection.

How does a Neptune water meter work?

A water meter is a device that records water consumption. Your water meter is connected to a transmitter, which takes consumption information and sends (transmits) it to a remote reading device that collects this data. This information is then used for billing purposes.

How do I read my Neptune digital meter?

To read a Neptune E-Coder water meter: Shine a flashlight on the photoelectric eye (look for the flashlight symbol) to activate the screen. The screen eventually will begin to flash between “Reading” and “Rate”.

Are Neptune water meters smart meters?

Neptune provides a solid foundation for smart water with absolute encoder registers offering utilities options for the functionality they need – from accurate monthly meter reading, to advanced customer consumption data, to priority alarms for continuous leaks and reverse flow events.

Can I read my water meter remotely?

Automated Meter Readers (AMRs) are clever things. They are meters fitted with a built-in radio transmitter, which sends your meter reading to one of our receivers as it passes by your home. This means that we can read your meter remotely, rather than someone coming to your home to do it manually.

How can I tell if I have a water leak in my digital meter?

For Digital Display (LCD) Meters Observe the flow rate screen for at least 10 flashes. If the number is greater than zero on any of the flashes, you have a continuous leak . Some leaks are very slow and may not show as a continuous flow.

What do the black numbers mean on a water meter?

Numbers in the black boxes show the amount of cubic metres of water you have used. You are charged for every cubic metre, so you only need to record the numbers in the black boxes. The numbers in the red boxes record tenths and hundredths of a cubic metre.

Can you hack your water meter?

The sensors are unattended and hang on the meter, outside the house, and so they are easily tampered with. The cyber attacks against them can be active, where commands are issued to them, or passive, where the data is taken. If people want to reduce their water bills, they could hack the sensors.

What happens if you put a magnet on a water meter?

A neodymium magnet influences the magnetic clutch of the dry dial water meter, causing a complete stop of its measurement despite flowing water (Figure 3).

Is there an app to read water meters?

uRead is a full meter reading application designed for Android smartphones and tablets. It offers the user the ability to enter meter readings and record office messages and/or pictures with a smartphone or tablet device to transmit to the office.

Why is my water meter spinning when not using water?

There may be a hidden plumbing leak in the walls of your home, or maybe your toilet is running when it’s not in use. These “hidden” leaks can cause your home to be using water even when your main water valve is turned off.
