The right planning and coordination are instrumental to AMR deployment. The right suppliers are important, too.
"Brooks Utility Products Group has been intimately involved with many AMR deployments in recent years," according to Jeff Hanft, vice president of Brooks UPG. "In working with utilities like PPL Electric Utilities, Duquesne Light and others, we have delivered a range of adapters, safety and security products on time.
"WeÂve also shown the flexibility to step up production to meet new delivery deadlines."
Brooks UPG will showcase its AMR-related products at booths 713, 715 during Autovation 2005, Sept. 18-21, Long Beach, Calif.
The AMR products often used by utilities include:
- Adapters: Including bottom-fed to socket-type adapters, extender adapter/interbases, K-Type meter conversion adapters and kits, and energy management adapters.
- Seals: Tamper-evident, tamper-resistant and durable meter security seals. Brooks UPGÂs seals often are color-coded, bar-coded, and customized to fit utilitiesÂ particular needs.
- Security devices: Including a range of medium- and high-security devices for ring-style and ringless style meters.
- Safety equipment: Socket installation test devices for ring- and ringless-style sockets.
"Working with Brooks UPG means that utilities can be more efficient in time and cost-savings by working with a single-source supplier for many of their AMR needs, rather than multiple vendors," Hanft added.
Brooks Utility Products Group provides a complete line of metering related products for the utility industry. Brooks UPG, part of the E.J. Brooks family of companies, combines the resources of three well-known utility industry suppliers: Ekstrom Industries, Meter Devices and Brooks Security Seals.
