Tokyo, Japan - July 15, 2016
Reliability, durability and data protection are three reasons the Sensus iPERLTM meter received certification from Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). The iPERL on-demand meter helps identify water use, leaks and theft, the three common causes of “non-revenue water” – water that has been produced but is “lost” before it reaches customers.
With iPERL, utilities can obtain real-time data and address a pressing challenge of improving operational efficiency.
The Sensus iPERL™ has been successfully introduced in a joint field trial with Kobe City Waterworks at nine locations including schools, a port and airport, with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone West Corporation (NTT West), Kobe City Waterworks Bureau and MIRAIT Technologies Corporation as partners.
The solution features the FlexNet communication system, which provides the basis for smart city infrastructure by wirelessly and securely transporting critical data for public service providers including electric, water and gas utilities. The proven performance of iPERL combined with its two-way communication solutions is the foundation of a smart water system.
- Sensus has been awarded certification for its iPERL™ smart water meter from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of Japan, the Government authority providing certification to any meter used for billing.
- The Sensus iPERL is a first-of-its-kind smart water meter in Japan in three areas – the first small electromagnetic water flow meter, the first water flow meter with R800 measuring capability and the first water flow meter with integrated communication function.
