Smart grid technology leader Tantalus Systems Holding today announced a technology license agreement with Neptune Technology Group whereby the radio frequency protocol of Neptune’s R900® System water endpoint will be integrated onto the Tantalus Utility Network (TUNet®). Tantalus and Neptune further agreed that Tantalus may now offer Neptune R900 water meter data collection and presentment of consumption data to multi-commodity utilities supporting electricity and water throughout North America.
The integration of Neptune’s R900 water endpoint onto Tantalus’ communication network is another example of how Tantalus’ TRUScan™ technology provides increasing flexibility to multi-commodity utilities by leveraging one smart grid platform that is capable of accessing data from a variety of electric, water and gas meters with differing communication protocols. Through the combined offering, utilities will gain access to daily water consumption data and critical alarms from Neptune R900 devices to improve the efficiency and reliability of delivering water through a utility’s distribution system. Additionally, utilities will be able to access water meter data from R900 endpoints through their existing TUNet head-end and CIS systems driving further operating synergies across multiple departments within a utility.
“The integration and support for Neptune’s market leading R900 technology with Tantalus’ TUNet smart grid platform provides multi-commodity utilities with an ideal option to access daily water consumption data as well as water leak and no-flow condition detection,” said Neptune’s Vice President of Marketing, Chuck Brunson.
“Expanding our offering to water departments through a partnership with Neptune, which is a market-leading provider of water management solutions, further demonstrates our commitment to delivering purpose-built solutions designed to improve the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the utilities we serve,” said Peter Londa, President & CEO of Tantalus Systems. “Improved visibility into the flow and consumption of water from Neptune’s water endpoints through the Tantalus platform creates a compelling value proposition that will deliver economic benefits and environmental stewardship to the communities served by our joint customers.”
