FlashSentry’s patent-pending Safe-T-Guard barrier isolates the 480 service voltage in a separate, sealable compartment from the 120 volt metering compartment. This can lower workers’ risk of arc flash and reduce the requirement for additional flame retardant clothing, allowing utilities to adhere to OSHA standards driven by the latest NFPA 70E standards for PPE.

Brooks UPG also offers a full range of test switches, transockets, primary meter enclosures and warm up boards to supply utilities with products that provide value and innovative answers to safety-related industry issues.

GALAXY AMI Platform Now Compatible with eMeter’s IntegratedMDM Program

Water utilities using the eMeter IntegratedMDM program can now incorporate the GALAXY AMI platform from Badger Meter, thanks to a new partnership between the two companies.

IntegratedMDM, which stands for meter data management, is a software program that supports the installation, operation and management of AMI systems and the data they generate.

Larger water utilities that manage several ongoing daily applications find a MDM-type of program can be particularly helpful as it can control each activity in an efficient manner. Utilities with the IntegratedMDM program in place can now deploy Badger’s READCENTER Reading Data Management software with the GALAXY system and have peace-of-mind in knowing that the eMeter and Badger systems are compatible.

The GALAXY system provides utilities with tools to improve reading efficiencies, accuracy and customer service by providing hourly reading data and alarm conditions.

Sustained accuracy and reliability are two key attributes of Badger Meter’s new E-Series Meter. Thanks to an electronic, solid-state design, the E-Series Meter has no moving parts, which improves its long-term accuracy and reliability by virtually eliminating any chance of mechanical wear and tear that can shorten its lifespan and produce less accurate data in water utilities’ reporting. The E-Series Meter has an internal battery to power the meter for up to 20 years.

The E-Series Meter is sealed for protection against tampering, ideal for less than optimum water conditions, has displays for consumption, rate of flow, flow direction and alarms, is available in three sizes: 5/8” ¾” and 1”, with maximum flow rates of 25, 35 and 55 gallons per minute.
