The R100NA FlexNet® collector provides fill-in network coverage for groups of meters in hard-to-reach locations. The R100NA reduces the need for costly walk-by/drive-by end point reads in “blind spots,” or a complex mix of communication methods. One hundred percent AMI coverage is now more attainable and cost effective than ever.
Measuring 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches, this compact solution can be deployed in a wide variety of environments where space is at a premium. The R100NA integrates seamlessly with the Sensus FlexNet communication network and supports next generation features that enable secure, high performance communication directly with the RNI (Regional Network Interface). Firmware download, alarm monitoring, advanced encryption, ESM support and remote end point configuration make deployment and operation simple.
• Provide economical, 100 percent coverage: The R100NA collector provides a low-cost infill solution that provides direct backhaul coverage. You can reach every meter with minimal infrastructure while maintaining our high-performance point-to-multipoint architecture.
• Utilize a common operating system: The R100NA shares a common operating system with Sensus FlexNet base station products, ensuring simple, consistent configuration and management of all FlexNet components.
• Operate on licensed radio spectrum: In North America, Federal Communications Commission (FCC)/Industry Canada (IC) protected primary-use spectrum avoids competition with other wireless services and interference from other radio devices.
• Deploy a small footprint: A lightweight unit with flexible pole or wall-mounting options enables strategic deployment with a discreet appearance.
