2022-06-23

In recent years, with the rapid development of science, "smart water meter" has gradually begun to integrate into people's life, and let some laypeople puzzled is, what is the difference between the so-called "smart water meter" and the traditional water meter? What kind of intelligence is it?


The traditional water meter is a meter to measure the water flow, which is mostly the cumulative flow measurement of water. It is generally divided into volumetric water meter and velocity water meter.

Smart water meter is a new type of water meter that uses modern microelectronics technology, modern sensing technology, and intelligent IC card technology to measure water consumption and transfer water consumption data and calculate transactions. Compared with the traditional water meter, which only has the function of flow acquisition and mechanical pointer showing the water consumption, it is a great progress.

In addition to recording and electronic display of water consumption, smart water meter can also control water consumption according to the agreement, automatically complete the calculation of water price, and can store water consumption data.
