Smart Gas Meter

Cubic Solution: From Ultrasonic Transducer, Ultrasonic Gas Flow Sensor Module to Complete Smart Gas Meters

With the rapid development of technologies, IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Based the Internet of Things (IoT) , it will be easy to connect physical objects embedded with sensors and software for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data over the internet. With this great progress of the Times, the Internet of Things (loT) enable gas metering technology to constantly renovate to a more intelligent era. Benefit from IoT, more innovations on water, electric, oil and gas utilities allow the energy utility companies to bring the energy service to a more modern level.One of the key industry, gas industry, also gradually starts to combine IoT seamless communication technologies to realize smarter gas metering technology, which collects and transmits massive data more accurately and safely, and also provides effective support for urban data mining and data analysis. Ultrasonic technology parallelly has contributed to the trend of intelligent gas metering solution development.With the great advantages of high accuracy, high stability and good anti-contamination performance, ultrasonic loT smart gas meters have gradually become the mainstream trend in AMI, AMR and IC prepaid applications and will become indispensable links in the gas industry.

    AMI smart gas meter solutions

    Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution is an integrated system of smart meters, communications networks, and data management systems that enables two-way  communication between utilities and customers. More and more Governments agencies and utilities are turning toward advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems as part of larger "smart grid" initiatives. Cubic has provided a wide range of remote communication gas meter solutions based on comprehensive technologies integration.

    AMR smart gas meter solutions

    Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from gas meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This technology solution mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to  read a meter. Cubic's comprehensive gas service solutions could be equipped with -diverse functions of the AMR technology.

    IC card prepayment gas meter solutions

    Based on advanced IC card technologies, the gas operation mode "pay before using gas" becomes maturely possible. The smart operation mode involves IC card smart gas meters and the supporting charging  management system.To acclimate the trend of IC card intelligent gas meter, Cubic has already had complete solutions of IC card intelligent gas meter control and to realize gas prepayment operation mode through connecting to comprehensive Gas Management Platform.
