Claiming the technology to be a game changer, the company said that it is environmentally durable and extends the endpoint battery to a 20-year lifespan
Leading utility management solutions provider, Smart Earth Technologies (SET) recently announced the launch and expansion of their new 330 Product Series featuring solar technology. The company boasted of this tech as it extends the endpoint battery to a full 20-year life span while simultaneously being environmentally durable.
The official note mentioned that battery-powered Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) endpoints require a power source to ‘wake up’ and send meter data to the Head End System (HES). It said that solely relying on battery power can lead to limited functionality. Replaceable battery solution invites water intrusion, reduces environmental sustainability, and requires increased maintenance by utility personnel. SET claimed that its patented solution uses solar energy to significantly support and extend the battery life, thereby delivering a substantial return on investment (ROI) to utilities.
“Consistent with our legacy of innovation, SET is the first to offer a battery-based solar-enhanced water and gas AMI solution,” remarked the CEO of SET, Vivek Beri. He said that their company has solved the dilemma of extending battery life while enhancing functionality and environmental sustainability.
“SET is committed to innovating the most environmentally sustainable, reliable, and useful solution in the Advanced Metering Infrastructure industry for electric, water, and gas utilities. It is inspiring to live in a time where creative, agile design in technology can deliver excellence for utilities, their consumers, and the public at large,” Beri further added.
Notably, the brand was recently expanded by CrescoNet to include gas and electric solutions. The 330 Product Series adds solar boost AMI endpoints for water and gas utilities to SET’s product portfolio.
Part of the CrescoNet family, California-based Smart Earth Technologies (SET) is the leading global provider of environmentally sustainable utility management solutions for electric, gas, and water utilities. It claims that the technology is a highly resilient and secure, public, and private LTE/5G standards-based AMI and Internet of Things (IoT), meter-neutral solution.
