Wireless, battery operated transceiver meant for use with our Commercial Water Metering with Online Data product. This transceiver attaches to a meter with a pulse output wire and sends a wireless signal to a Next Century Gateway. It is meant for indoor installation with temperatures between -20F-140F. The battery will last approximately 6 years and can be replaced with a CR123A 3V Lithium Battery (the system will alert you to low battery status). Once connected to the system, the data will be sent every 6 hours. This time frame is adjustable from the default to anywhere between 15 minutes to 24 hours).
