LUTON, England, Dec. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Elster (NYSE : ELT ) announced today that it has been awarded a contract from Anglian Water for the supply of V200 and V210 volumetric polymer hybrid Smart Meters.
A key advantage of the V200 and V210 polymer hybrid meters is that they comprise a fully integrated, tamperproof advanced meter reading (AMR) unit, alongside Smart Metering features to enable water providers to manage their resources more effectively.
Using advanced electronic register technology, the V200 and V210 hybrids are volumetric water meters which set new standards in automated meter reading. Easy to install with no complex commissioning, the V200 and V210 hybrids use intelligence within the electronic register to turn simple data into valuable metering information such as back flow, no flow and leakage detection.
The V200 and V210 hybrids have been designed to form an integral part of Elster's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system, ensuring water utilities are able to meet their targets for resource management and customer service.
"Anglian Water looks forward to the imminent installation of the V200 and V210 polymer hybrid meters from Elster as part of Anglian Water's extended trial of radio meters. The signs to date are encouraging on ease of installation, set up and use," said Paul Glass, project manager for Anglian Water.
"With world class design and manufacturing facilities based in the UK, we can see major benefits in being able to work with Elster. We can influence them in terms of designing products to meet our future needs and Elster can support us with a high volume supply of water meters," Glass added.
"We are delighted to have received the tender award from Anglian Water. The innovative V200 and V210 polymer hybrid water meters with integrated radios represent the latest technology in smart water meters," commented Jerry Lauzze, executive vice president of Elster's global water business.
