Fresh running water is central to public health and pleasant cityscapes, and with growing demand and dwindling water resources, utility EMASESA wanted real-time insight into consumption in the Spanish city of Sevilla. Recognizing that a wireless solution would avoid the need to upgrade and provide hardware connections for its existing network of water-meters, EMASESA turned to Adevice for help. A critical requirement for EMASESA was that the terminals must offer exceptional reliability to ensure continuity of customer service as well as a long service life for an optimized Return On Investment (ROI).
Adevice delivered a wireless communication in device powered by Saft's LSH 20 primary batteries. As well as the need for compatibility with multiple types of water meters, the Adevice units faced significant challenges. Saft's lithium thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2) LSH 20 provides the ideal solution with its excellent pulse capability enabling long-range telecommunication transmission coupled with unmatched reliability in the field, where temperatures vary widely and many batteries would not last.
