tron Inc. has signed an agreement with Metron-Farnier LLC, authorising the water meter company to be a distributor of Itron AMR technology. The agreement follows the product authorisation of the Metron OER encoded register now deployed on all Spectrum and Enduro single-jet water meters.
Metron-Farnier was established in 1990 to introduce one of the first single-jet water meters into the US water meter market. The Spectrum product line offers a range of compound meters with a single moving part, resulting in extreme low flow measurement capabilities along with minimal maintenance. More than 500 US water utilities are using Metroní¯¿½s single-jet technology.
The product synergy between these meters and Itroní¯¿½s drive-by and fixed network solutions has produced immediate interest. The low flow sensitivity of the encoded meters, coupled with the advanced AMR capabilities, give a water utility accurate measurement, reliable communications and advanced data management.
