New AMI systems and functionality to be launched


Hunt Technologies LogoPequot Lakes, MN, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — October 19, 2006 – Hunt Technologies, a global provider of advanced metering and energy efficiency technologies for electric, water and gas utilities, will launch additions to its complete set of advanced metering solutions later this month.

At Autovation 2006 Hunt will present details on StatSignal, its dynamic two-way RF mesh network, solution streaming interval data from the company’s TS2 power line carrier AMI system, and the advanced data management solution Command Center™ MDM.

StatSignal’s technology creates an auto-intelligent routing mesh network that adjusts to various RF environments, creating higher system performance and reliability receiving hourly and sub-hourly billing, power quality and event data. Another benefit is the system’s scalability and accessibility – features that will be further enhanced with the planned integration into Hunt’s Command Center data management system.

Streaming data provides a continuous flow of selected data, as opposed to batches of data received from traditional hourly interval data. The function will not be limited to kWh values – utilities will be able to choose what data value to stream, and the function can be turned on and off at each endpoint.

Command Center MDM is an enhanced version that will include full application integration and utilizes a data warehouse for increased scalability and faster reporting.
