Ultrasonic Flow Detection

Ultrasonic technology allows the Curaᵀᴹ meter to detect leaks at low flows, and sustain accuracy over time.

Built-in Alarms

Curaᵀᴹ meters feature ten in-built configurable alarms to deliver information to operators and customers at the optimal time.

Extended Battery Life

Featuring two internal batteries, the Curaᵀᴹ meter provides a guaranteed 15-year battery life.

Low Stranded Asset Risk

Optimse capacity with remote over-the-air firmware updates. Open standard LwM2M over NB-IoT prevents vendor lock-in. NB-IoT network is a secure licensed spectrum.

Designed for Longevity

Fully integrated to reduce risk of device damage and ensure payload data matches readings. Stores ten days of data and is highly resilient to network disruptions.

Keeping Lifetime Ownership Costs Low

Configure and manage devices remotely to reduce the lifetime cost of device management, and minimise the risk of stranded assets.

Additional Sensors

Curaᵀᴹ meters include water flow, temperature and tamper sensors as standard, with additional pressure sensors available for integration at the manufacturing stage.

Rich Data Set

Utilities require high quality, reliable and up-to-date data for their operations. Curaᵀᴹ gathers data and facilitates advanced use cases – including customer leak detection, visibility of daily usage at a customisable interval level, pressure fluctuation alarms, device and network data points, accurate billing and pressure monitoring for managing network-wide health.
