The Tricon E3 transmitter provides an interface between the water meter and an electronic controller for batching processing, monitoring flow totals and flow rate data. This works with any Neptune water meter and mounts between the meter body and the existing register. It is designed to independently transmit data to the premise owner while not interfering with the operation of the utility billing register data collection. The transmitter can provide a transistor-type pulse output proportional to the volume measured or a 4-20mA signal proportional to the meter’s rate of flow. Typically this transmitter outputs pulses at a much higher frequency than switch closure type transmitters. This transmitter must be ordered according to size and type of Neptune water meter being used.
