New AirPoint meter module released

Hunt RF Module (smaller)

Pequot Lake, MN, USA — (METERING.COM) — July 24, 2006 – The release of the new high power AirPoint module for the GE I-210 meter has been announced by Hunt Technologies.

The AirPoint GE I-210 endpoint, which is seamlessly integrated into the meter, allows the programming of a specific message ‘bubble-up’ rate using GE Metermate software. With selectable values of 6, 15 and 30 seconds and a transmission rate up to 4 km or more, depending on topography, the endpoint can be configured to work in low, mid and high density mobile and fixed network environments.

Utilities will also be able to specify between two types of modules compatible with several off-site data collection systems. Other features include SCM or SCM/IDM message options and a direct register reading system, while the tamper resistant design minimizes theft.

The AirPoint module is compatible with Itron’s Mobile Collection System 1.0 and 2.0.
