Nighthawk invites you to join us at Distributech 2016
Booth 2241 - Orlando Fl. February 9-11
Nighthawk, a leading wireless smart grid solutions provider will be demonstrating versatile Mesh-Cellular™ AMI solutions at booth 2241. Nighthawk offers a range of solutions from tactical, all the way to complete read solutions. Our tactical solutions address key challenges such as off cycle reads, remote connect / disconnect, outage notification, prepay metering. By making use of public cellular for communications this liberates utilities from the high cost of building and maintaining communications infrastructure. Nighthawk devices can be placed anywhere in your service territory.
As you add more devices and build out your network you may choose to add Nighthawk’s ERT collecting electric meters which allow for the collection of nearby Water, Gas, and Electric ERTs or our Mesh technology allowing for full two way communications between all of your devices. Our ERT Collector solution allows you to change out a small percentage of your existing meters while giving you the ability to read your entire system remotely and on demand.
This freedom allows for the deployment of any number of devices wherever they are needed. Nighthawk’s cellular and Mesh-Cellular technology allows your tactical solutions to grow to a complete full featured AMI solution. Combined with our versatile cloud-based control platform the Nighthawk solution allows for integration with your billing and meter read systems as well as providing customers with consumer and industrial portals.
Nighthawk enables you to move from a strategically targeted solution to a full AMI system and it does so, on your timetable and as your budget allows. Deploy Nighthawk devices where needed today and build on them as you need to a full AMI solution tomorrow.
Nighthawk’s technology is available in GE, Landis+Gyr and Itron consumer as well as Itron SENTINEL™ 3 phase electric meters, wireless Capacitor Bank Control units and communications upgrades for older 2G SENTINEL™ meters.
Disconnect, Pre-Pay integration, Voltage Management, Off-cycle reads, Net-Metering, and custom usage portals are additional benefits of the Nighthawk AMI solution.
Nighthawk is the choice for advancing your existing system strategically.
