Intelligent Water Monitoring System on Display at Autovation 2009 DALLAS--(Business Wire)-- Capstone Metering, LLC, a North-Texas based technology company has launched theIntelliH2O water meter, the first intelligent water meter for residential use. This technology brings unprecedented value to global water industries by effectively managing, controlling and conserving water. Capstone Metering will introduce the IntelliH2O water meter at Autovation 2009, the Utilimetrics Smart Metering Conference and Exposition, September 13-16 at the Denver Convention Center. Live demonstrations will be available at the Capstone Metering booth, #832. "For more than a century, the water meter went virtually unchanged - until now," said Scott Williamson, Capstone Metering president. "The IntelliH2O`s combination of advanced technologies, electronics and capabilities will fundamentally and forever change the water industry and how we monitor water usage." The IntelliH2O`s breakthrough technology includes: * Two-way remote communication - Eliminating hand-held or drive-by water meter readings will save utility companies money and manpower while reducing greenhouse emissions. * Wireless network communication - Integrating IntelliH2O into the Smart Grid allows homeowners to easily manage their water consumption. * Self-calibration - Enabling utilities to more accurately measure water usage provides them with higher revenues and the ability to save water. * Self-generating power - Eliminating the need for routine battery replacement, the IntelliH2O provides longer meter functionality and reduces battery contaminants in landfills. * Remote turn-on and shut-off - Allowing utility departments to shut-off a meter when a leak occurs saves time and money. It also provides better security and control for unknown chemicals or contaminants introduced into the water system. The IntelliH2O water meter is housed in a single, self-contained unit, with all technologies built directly into the meter - something no other water meter on the market today can claim. Additionally, the meter provides the platform and capabilities for water conservation. "We have undervalued the significance of water as a life sustaining resource for too long," continued Williamson. "It is our belief that the IntelliH2O water meter will save utility companies millions of dollars, while saving the world millions of gallons of water." The IntelliH2O water meter goes into beta testing during the fourth quarter of 2009 and will enter production in the second quarter of 2010.
