Enware Australia has entered into a contract with Sydney Water to supply
wireless ultrasonic meters for all new multi-level buildings in the Sydney
Water region. Sydney Water is one of the largest water utility companies in
The contract recognises Enware as the first approved and accredited
meter supplier for Sydney Water’s new Multi-Level Individual Metering (MLIM) policy,
effective from September this year.
Enware’s Hydrometer Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system takes water and
energy management of residential, commercial and industrial developments to a
new level by providing comprehensive and accurate usage data including leakage
Suitable for Green Star building projects, Enware’s wireless ultrasonic
meter enables wireless data transfer that allows meter readings to be collected
using walk-by or drive-by technology, IZAR M-Bus or fixed network systems and
BMS systems for applications ranging from single point to entire plants,
complexes or districts.
Fully compatible with water, gas and electricity meters, the AMR
metering system features flexible data management solutions, including IZAR NET
software that has been developed to interface and adapt to most customer
billing systems and also provide a powerful database management tool.
Enware’s wireless ultrasonic meters meet all requirements for data
integrity and system reliability strictly stipulated by Sydney Water including
the use of wireless technology; no mechanical or reed switches technology in connecting
the meter to the transmitter module; ability to count in reverse in the event
of reverse flow; and minimum 10 years of battery life.
Instead of mechanical pulses, Enware uses ultrasonic electronic
technology, which has the additional benefit of preventing equipment tampering.
This feature is critical to utilities, especially to ensure the system provides
true and accurate data for billing; and eliminates any risk of false data skewing
plans for future development of infrastructure and consumption trends.
Enware’s wireless metering system also
eliminates the reliability issues typically associated with traditional hard
wired systems caused by damaged, disconnected or poorly connected cables.
Enware’s fully integrated meter does not have any external add-on components.
The AMR system also provides leak detection and reverse flow counting, helping
to deal with water theft and meter tampering, while also reducing maintenance
costs by providing a 16-year meter life and improved revenue, from the ‘whole
of life’ accuracy assurance delivered by Enware’s ultrasonic measuring
