DALLAS, TEXAS (October 12, 2010) – Nighthawk will be a Silver Sponsor at the upcoming Itron User Conference in Orlando Florida October 17th through the 19th. Nighthawk will be showcasing its new RDM950 personality board, which is integrated into the Itron C2 SXD meter, at this year’s conference.
By integrating a GSM radio in combination with the new Messenger, ERT compatible radio, the RDM950 can be installed strategically anywhere in a utilities’ service territory. The Nighthawk solution provides advanced meter solutions while maintaining standard walk by or drive by reads.
Remote connect/disconnect is just the beginning. The RDM950 also offers outage notification, tamper detection and confirmation of power. The solution can also be utilized where time of use metering is desirable. In the case of a power outage, the RDM950 will automatically report the event and can also be configured to notify select utility personnel via email or SMS message. Virtually, before your customer can dial the phone, the utility can have a team in action to remedy any problem.
Typically the RDM950 offers payback in less than a year and is fully extensible to future AMI installations making it an excellent choice to bridge between today’s needs with tomorrows anticipated requirements. Developed as a tactical solution, utilities can deploy anywhere from just a couple to a few thousand with the same ease.
Utilities can visit the Nighthawk website at www.nighthawkcontrol.com and request a simple payback analysis to see if the RDM950 is right for them.
