The arrival of RFID meter reading technology

Introduction: In order to completely solve the problems of traditional meter reading methods, such as low efficiency of meter reading and lack of meter reading, the new intelligent remote water meter cannot be fully popularized in the short term due to investment costs and other issues. Mianyang City Water Group makes full use of it. New technologies such as the Internet of Things and mobile Internet have adopted a self-developed method to develop a wireless handheld handheld meter reading system based on RFID chips.

In recent years, with the acceleration of the urbanization process in Mianyang, Sichuan, and the implementation of the “one household, one form” policy, the number of water meters for users in Mianyang City has increased significantly, reaching more than 370,000. The meter reading work of water supply companies is under tremendous pressure.

In order to completely solve the problems of traditional meter reading methods, such as low efficiency of meter reading, multiple meter reading errors, and inadequate meter reading, the new intelligent remote water meter cannot be fully popularized in the short term due to investment costs and other problems. Mianyang City Waterworks The Group took full advantage of emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and mobile Internet, and developed a wireless handheld handheld meter reading system based on RFID chips by adopting independent research and development.

The system uses an RFID radio chip embedded in each water meter, that is, an “ID card” is customized for each water meter, written to include water meters, users, water, and other information. The meter reader is equipped with a mobile handheld device to scan the meter. The real-time return of meter reading information through GPRS wireless communication greatly improves the efficiency and accuracy of meter reading, and effectively reduces meter reading errors.


The system has been put into use and realized the transformation from the traditional paper meter reading method to the electronic meter reading method, breaking through the traditional meter reading and toll marketing modes, making the meter reading work scientific, standardized, intelligent and orderly. This will also raise corporate services to a new level and create a new era of information marketing.
