ELSTER INTRODUCES NEW S150 SINGLE-JET WATER METER FOR EUROPEAN AND LATIN AMERICAN MARKETS
Elster (NYSE: ELT) announced today that it has launched the new S150 single-jet water meter to replace the Aurus S130 single-jet meter, a leading product in the Spanish market for over 10 years.
This solution represents the latest innovation for Elster in its residential product portfolio and will be launched initially in Europe and Latin America. The introduction of the new S150 is in response to customer demand for high accuracy water meters for revenue collection and the growing need for water conservation in terms of detection of water leakage within the distribution system.
The S150 has been designed in accordance with European Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) 2004/22/EC, with a dynamic flow range of up to R160 for Q3 2.5 m3/h and Q3 4.0 m3/h. It is available in a range of body lengths and thread sizes to meet customer requirements. The product offers high accuracy with low maintenance and can additionally be equipped with a bi-directional pulser making it suitable for remote consumption reading.
"The S150 is pre-equipped for wireless AMR/AMI connectivity including compatibility with Elster's Emeris range of Smart Metering solutions, helping water utilities manage their water resources more efficiently, providing greater control over water leakage and providing accurate usage data in real-time,” said Pedro Egaña, regional director of Elster’s global water business.
