Why Automated Metering and our Solution ?

Genesis Retro Automation (Retro Smart Meter) New Meter (Smart) – Competition
Cost of Product is appreciably less Cost of Product, Import Duties, Time is huge
Installation will not require removal of existing meters Installation requires removal of meter, reconnection as well as new SAP Id generation for new asset
Can work with all brands of deployed brands across the CGD Utility has to remove each brand and go for new tendering circle by circle
Backend ensures cross compatibility, is meter agnostic, and ensures healthy meter data collection in an all weather scenario Backend has to be deployed, with an intent to work with several manufacturers and interpreting their data generation and billing




Automating of Metering Data – Industry Requirements

  • Works across Meters of Different Makes.
  • Is Field Retro Capable.
  • Generate reading image as well as converted reading from the image.
  • Ease of Installation & Configuration
  • Cloud Harvested Data Processing, Retention and Integration with ERP Systems
  • Tamper Alarms (Gas Leaks etc.)
  • Low or Negligible Cost of Maintenance.



LORA WAN Wireless AMR for Gas Meter

LoRaWAN smart city applications are growing rapidly with the Internet of Things deployment – including smart metering, street lighting management, smart parking, smart waste management etc. The Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) sector was predicted to be the largest market for smart meters in 2018. In particular, the required regulatory conditions in the coming years are supporting the high rise of smart meter market for electricity and gas metering. AMR is using wireless communication technology, where readings are collected automatically from utility devices. With attention to gas metering, the benefits of AMR to utilities are much more than just remote metering. Besides searching for more secure and reliable ways to control energy generation, the cost reduction continues to be the key influencer in the growth of AMR. As a result, businesses have better understanding of energy usage and therefore are able to make more accurate decisions concerning efficiency.

Developed by Genesis , LoRaWAN Wireless AMR is the first among such devices, enabling the acquisition of gas consumption data from with most meters that have a pulse transmitter (integrated or coupled to the meter).

LoRaWAN Wireless AMR is meant to be attached to the existing gas meters, providing detailed energy consumption information in real-time. The sensor starts gathering data automatically to the server after the installation and may be configured according to each unit. The LoRaWAN module helps to optimize usage of natural resources in the gas metering industry and gain substantial productivity.
