With the development of modern science and technology, traditional mechanical water meters have gradually been replaced by remote water meters and intelligent water meters. Both are terminal devices used to measure water consumption in residential properties, factories and parks and other scenarios, which can help water meter managers effectively reduce labor costs and improve management efficiency. However, there are differences between the two, leading to many users often confused when purchasing water meters, Therefore, learn the following four differences between remote water meter and intelligent water meter before purchasing:
1. Remote water meter and intelligent water meter have different definitions
Remote water meter is composed of ordinary mechanical water meter and electronic acquisition and transmission module. The electronic module completes signal acquisition, data processing, storage and upload the data to the repeater or hand-held meter reader through the communication line.
Generally speaking, intelligent water meter is IC card intelligent water meter. It is a new type of water meter that uses modern microelectronic technology, modern sensor technology and intelligent IC card technology to measure water consumption, transfer water data and settle accounts.
2. The production costs of remote water meter and intelligent water meter are different
Compared with remote water meter, intelligent water meter appeared earlier, its technology development is relatively more mature, and it has more perfect production and manufacturing process, so its production cost is lower.
3. Remote water meter and intelligent water meter have different selling prices
The production cost of remote water meter is different from that of intelligent water meter, and the retail price is naturally different. The general remote water meter is about 0.5~1 times more expensive than the intelligent water meter.
4. Remote water meter and intelligent water meter have different main functions
Remote water meter is mainly dedicated to solving the problem of meter reading to the home. It uses NB-IOT wireless Internet of Things and M-BUS and other communication methods to realize remote automatic reading of water meter data, greatly improving the efficiency of water meter reading and reducing the cost of manual meter reading; The smart water meter is mainly used to solve the problem of water meter charging. The charging mode of buying water by buying cards and paying before using electricity is adopted to solve the problem of household water bill arrears on the basis of saving a lot of manpower.
In a word, both remote water meters and intelligent water meters have their own advantages and are constantly improving and optimizing. You can choose a water meter with high cost performance based on your actual application scenarios and functional requirements.
