DALLAS, TEXAS (January 31, 2010)–Want to improve your existing AMR solution instead of replacing it? Many utilities with one-way RF and Power Line Carrier solutions need low cost ways to enable remote disconnect/reconnect and prepay. Nighthawk Total Control™ announced today another solution that gives utilities added functionality for existing systems, eliminating the need for full system replacement. By deploying the Nighthawk CEO 950 collar with advanced interface capabilities, utilities are in complete control. With this product combination, one–way AMR and PLC utilities can quickly and easily execute prepaid electric service and perform remote disconnects/reconnects to better manage residential electric service safely and cost-effectively.
Harnessing the resources of a cyber secure existing communication infrastructure, the Nighthawk CEO 950 solution with bi-directional communications is the tool which enables the additional functionality one-way AMR utilities have been looking to deploy cost effectively.
By enabling the compatibility of the CEO 950 collar with a host of utility customer service and meter shop programs, one-way AMR utilities are able to continue using existing systems and screens to manage customer relationships. Having interfaced the CEO 950 to these systems, service transitions are as quick as a button push on the utility’s existing customer interface.
Simply deploy the CEO 950 collar with your existing AMR meter. Meter reads and other information continue to be processed in your existing format. Issue disconnect/reconnect commands through existing systems. Nighthawk takes care of the rest. Sounds simple, but it’s just another way to give you total control—without the high costs of total system replacements.
Do you offer prepay today on a one-way system? Wouldn’t enabling remote disconnect/reconnect enhance your service offering and lower your costs?
“Nighthawk listens to our customers. The ability to execute remote/disconnect/reconnect and prepay tactically is a big win for the utilities we serve. Integrating our advanced communications and web interface to existing systems used by our municipal, cooperative, and investor-owned utility customers is a big deal. It clearly lowers their costs and increases service levels”,said Michael Mayer Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nighthawk.
Whether it’s the Itron Centron II meter with The Nighthawk RDM 950 2-way intelligence board , or this new, enhanced 2-way collar product, Nighthawk is focused on high value, low cost, strategic solutions for its customers.
