Through their years of experience, Kamstrup has learned that every community and water system is unique. So, they make sure their smart metering solutions are unique too, developing technology specifically aimed to solve challenges that our customers face.
flowIQ® is a static smart water meter intended for the registration of residential water consumption. The water meter uses the ultrasonic principle and has been constructed on the basis of Kamstrup’s experience since 1991 with the development and production of static ultrasonic meters.

READy Automated Meter Reading Solutions
READy is Kamstrup’s automated meter reading (AMR) system that uses a smartphone or tablet as the meter reading device. READy uses Google Maps to show meter locations.
Meter readers can drive-by to read meters, and then send the readings to the billing department from the field—no office visit required.
The meters and data are processed in READy Manager, which has a simple user interface with a start screen and icon-based navigation, making the program intuitive and simple to use.
Integrating the existing customer database is typically the first step in the implementation of READy. This is easily done using a generic import function, which makes it possible to import almost any data format. In addition, the data can be checked for errors using a validation function, which ensures that all of the relevant data is accessible in READy Manager.
As soon as the operator, who is responsible for the mobile reading of meters, synchronizes his/her mobile device, the meter data is accessible in READy Manager.
Meters can be read on a daily or hourly basis with fixed data collection units. The overview menu shows all of the meters with info codes including information about the info code as pure text.
To simplify the integration with third party billing systems, READy Manager provides the option for exporting data in flexible formats. Data can either be exported on an ad hoc basis or by setting up an automatic job, which exports the data at a desired interval. Alternatively, the READy Manager can also be set up to automatically send data via email at desired interval.
USB Meter Reader
The Kamstrup USB Meter Reader reads Kamstrup flowIQ® water meters fitted with a built-in RF transmitter using FCC-approved 915MHz frequency band. Each USB meter Reader acquires and stores meter reading data for up to 4,000 meters. The user-friendly Computer Program is downloadable directly from the Internet. You establish the meters to be included in your AMR route list by entering or importing meter ID numbers and possible installation addresses in the USB Meter Reader Computer Program. For convenience if your system includes a high quantity of meters you can use more than one USB Reader, and meters can be grouped and linked by specific account types or routes.
