Master Meter Integrates 3G® Technology into Residential Solid-State iCon® Meter

The iCon Meter With Integrated 3G® Transceiver Provides an Accurate and Cost Effective Multi-utility Data Collection Solution.

Pittsburgh, PA — Master Meter has integrated the Master Meter 3G® two-way AMR transceiver into the Sensus iCon solid-state, single-phase residential electric meter. Both the Sensus iCon meter and Master Meter 3G® are prior recipients of the Frost & Sullivan New Product Development Award. This integrated AMR solution provides unparalleled measurement accuracy and a flexible, cost-effective meter reading solution.

This innovative integration of metering and AMR technology combines the iCon meter’s superior accuracy and
performance which exceeds ANSI C12.20 standards with Master Meter’s field-proven 3G® RF technology as confirmed in over 1,000,000 installed units. In conjunction with Master Meter’s MasterLink™ software, customers will benefit from detailed data logging, consumption trend analysis and graphical usage profiles. This powerful solution lends itself to be fully integrated into Master Meter’s future Fixed Network technology as well.

“We are excited to deliver this multi-utility AMR solution to the marketplace and continually provide greater value to our utility customers,” said Scott Seehoffer, Director of AMR for Master Meter. “The iCon meter’s smartly designed two-board design and open architecture made it easy to move forward with the integration of our 3G® AMR technology.”

“After qualification testing, we confirm the successful integration of 3G® AMR technology with the iCon meter”, says Arlin Rummel, Director, Electric Metering for Sensus Metering Systems. “The integration of the single-phase iCon residential electric meter with 3G® technology confirms our mission to offer a flexible platform for supporting field proven AMR communications technologies.”
