TouchReader®+ 3096 Reading Device


The TouchReader®+ 3096 reading device is a battery-powered, compact reading device with a visual display. It lets you read meters interfaced to the TouchRead® System and activate/deactivate our radios (Models 510R/520R). The TouchReader+ uses Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technology to electronically read an individual meter on the TouchRead System. This capability helps greatly reduce errors as compared to manual entry.

It features a slim, easy-to-hold ergonomic shape specially designed for comfortable and convenient one-hand operation. The unit weighs less than seven ounces and can be carried in a pocket or its own belt-mount case. So once you return after a full day of meter reading, data entry is a snap.
