One of the most common questions that we are asked, by new and existing clients, is "I already have meters installed that are not smart meters. Is it possible to retrofit or upgrade these old meters to be able to read them remotely?" The answer to this question lies within the type of meter that you currently have installed. Utility meters (electric, water, and gas) can be built with a pulse output and with many of the Byram meters, this comes standard. The pulse output provides a signal that creates a way for the meter to be read remotely with the addition of submetering communication products such as the Byram Pulse Transmitter (BPT). Once the BPT is connected to the meter and counting the number of pulses generated from the meter, you can install a few repeaters and a collector and begin to read the system remotely.
We encourage all current and potential clients to reach out and contact your account manager at Byram Utility Solutions to hear more about the process of retrofitting your meters!
