Flexible solution

Providing consistent functionality across all major meter brands, Eaton’s natural gas nodes provide utilities ultimate flexibility, supporting popular diaphragm and rotary meters to meet utilities’ needs. The solution also supports metered propane applications. As with other battery-powered nodes within the Eaton network, the nodes can facilitate communications connectivity via any powered node in its vicinity via the intelligent network routing employed by the system. The Eaton Smart Grid network supports electric, water and gas AMI applications as well as demand response and distribution automation.

Straightforward implementation

The solution leverages Eaton’s proven radio design to ensure outstanding communication range while providing for long battery life. Both node types were designed for streamlined, effective field installation while being resistant to tampering. Integrated nodes come in multiple styles, based on meter family, and install between the existing meter index and the meter. The pulse-based nodes connect to pulse outputs on a variety of rotary style meters and volume correctors and are constructed to support a variety of mounting options. This end-to-end solution utilizes the Eaton self-forming, self-optimizing, self-healing network, streamlining operations for utilities with natural gas or metered propane services. The low maintenance hardware is designed to provide readings, interval data, and alarm and event data, including tamper conditions, for the long haul.
