Automated Meter Readers

The advent and now widespread use of AMR and smart meters have provided significant changes for utility suppliers in how they view, manage and access the data these smart sensors gather. Moving from traditional meters to AMR allows domestic users and SMEs the opportunity to better control their energy usage and potentially cutting their energy costs. Smart meters differ from traditional meters by displaying an up-to-date record of the energy used, enabling domestic and business users to monitor their usage, and subsequently, alter their energy usage behaviour where possible. NFC group have taken smart meters one step further, with Orion integrated AMR, utility companies can reduce the labour element of collecting this critical data, reducing the need for ground level resources and streamlining business activities whilst maintaining efficient information gathering for clients and utility users.

Piezoelectric Sensors

A piezoelectric sensor is a device that uses the piezoelectric effect, to measure changes in pressure, acceleration, temperature, strain, or force by converting them to an electrical charge. NFC Group uses this change of state to trigger a response from our Orion RFID tags, providing real-time alerts to inform you that a response is required. High-value assets, such as priceless artwork, can be monitored, tracked and recovered using Orion piezoelectric smart sensors. Our smart home, automotive, or industrial environment technologies will measure everything from temperature, pressure, strain, fluid flow, acceleration, wind flow and light wirelessly and sim-free.
