Advanced Smart Gas Metering Solutions
Smart metering systems are revolutionizing the way gas companies manage operations and billing. These advanced meters allow for remote monitoring of customer consumption, leading to more efficient operations and precise billing.
Cutting-Edge Technology for Enhanced Gas Management
Smart gas meters operate on low-energy battery power, extending operational life and reducing ignition risks. SmartMeterQ’s UGM series utilizes ultrasonic technology with temperature adjustment at a standard 15° C, while the TGM series, based on MEMS (micro-electromechanical system) thermal mass sensors, offers cost-effective and accurate gas volume control. Long-range, low-power wireless connectivity, including 2G and NB IoT, is integral for efficient remote operation.
Advantages of Smart Gas Metering Systems
Smart gas metering systems offer significant benefits, including improved energy distribution, reduced operational costs, and optimized resource allocation. Consumption monitoring leads to accurate and timely billing. Where regulations permit, SmartMeterQ’s technology supports Prepayment metering, enabling remote modulation or interruption of gas supply.
Outsourced Expertise in Smart Meter Implementation
Our products are categorized into two main series based on internal technology: the UGM series with ultrasonic technology and the TGM series featuring thermal mass sensors. Both series come with high-capacity gas measurement versions. SmartMeterQ provides connectivity options through our proprietary cloud portal, popular third-party portals, or On-premises platforms hosted on company servers.
