The Dialog 3G™ unit is designed for outdoor application as well as for indoor uses. The Dialog 3G™ register is unified into the water meter. The Dialog 3G™ can be on-site programmed by a hand held PC (Laptop), Palm Reader or Pocket PC with RF accessories.
The Dialog 3G™ unit is set to transmit its reading sequentially each time according to its initial programmed set of time (Commonly, from 10 seconds and up to 30 seconds for the Walk-By, Drive-By and the Fixed Area systems). The meter data is transmitted directly to the concentrator or via the Repeaters, thus the user can actually get an on-line reading via the CITYMIND manage-ment system.
The Dialog 3G™ unit for Water meters is self-powered by internal batteries and designed to operate continuously more than 10 years.
