Updated Version of the Wireless, battery operated transceiver meant for use with our Commercial Water Metering with Online Data product. This NEW transceiver boasts up to 3 times longer range than its predecessor. It simply attaches to a pulse or encoded meter and sends a wireless signal to a Next Century Gateway.
It is meant for indoor installation with temperatures between -4˚F to 140˚F. For outdoor installations, which can greatly increase the range in multi-building systems such as those at Mobile Home Parks, the NCTR4-ENC enclosure is needed to protect the transceiver from the elements. You can easily add this as an accessory above. Another option is to use the RR4-TR which is a digital display AND transceiver and can handle ONE or TWO meters. That IS weatherproof and can be installed outdoors.
The battery will last approximately 10 years (dependent on operating temperature and check in settings) and can be replaced with a CR18505 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 hourly to once every 24 hours).
