Smart Meter Platform opens new opportunities for a smart flow meter and IoT flow meter development. Since 2000 Technoton Engineering develops smart flow meters and today the company offers a ready-to-use technology for custom flow meter development with a modular architecture and wide customization opportunities.
With hardware & software ready Smart Meter Platform it`s possible to develop an IoT meter from a sketch or to upgrade any classical meter. Upgrading classical meters, you open new opportunities and catch free market fractions. Among popular new meter types which we develop there is a NB-IoT smart meter, IoT smart flow meter, BLE smart meter, CAN bus flow meter (J1939).
A primary transducer together with our customized integrated electronics will reach goals of complete product development in 0 – 3 months and rapid mass flow meter production launch. A customized intelligent electronic module is integrated into a classical flowmeter to get new functionality and connectivity like NB-IoT, Bluetooth (BLE). This approach is used for stand-alone applications and also for IoT meters working in measuring, diagnostics and telematics IoT systems with tailored requirements to output interfaces, secondary data conversion, measuring accuracy, flow meter reliability.

Features of custom smart meter
- Build-in data reliability ensuring system (self-diagnostics, settings and counters authorization access, identification and registration of tampering attempts)
- Secondary signal conversion (linearization, filtration, thermal correction)
- Operation modes define (separate meters for different modes, events detection)
- Wired network with digital data transmission, data sending to an IoT platform
- Automation of technological processes (group configuration, calibration, verification)
Time-tested hardware & software solution is used to replace mechanical counting devices of any liquid and gas flow meters, to create new flow meter types or to replace outdated technology for transmitting information about the flow to pulse and current loop interfaces.
The electronic smart meter module receives signals from a measuring chamber, performs filtering and validation of data, pre-tuned data processing by built-in algorithms, accumulation. Data is presented on the display or in a local interface or sent to a cloud or user directly.
