HYDRUS 2.0 – The new generation of ultrasonic water meters

Untitled(Image source: Diehl Metering)The answer to every challenge

The international markets for water and energy are undergoing radical change, which is being clearly felt by suppliers in Europe. How can they introduce efficiency to their consumption measurements? How can they automate reading and billing? In addition, how can they ensure that they are investing in the right technology? With the new HYDRUS 2.0 generation, Diehl Metering is providing clear answers. From 2018, the innovative ultrasonic water meter will also be available as a bulk water meter.

Climate change, globalisation, and urbanisation: We in the metering world are on the threshold of a new era. Digital data processes are the key to the future of metering. Transparent consumption data is in demand – and needs to be implemented in real time.

How do you digitalise your processes?

An infrastructure of HYDRUS water meters is perfect as a basis for an automated metering solution. IoT-ready – HYDRUS 2.0 comes ready with high-performance radio. Reading can be carried out immediately and efficiently via drive-by or walk-by. Moreover, it can even be upgraded to a fixed network at any time, without the need for parameterisation of individual meters.

How future-oriented are your investments?

Digitalisation provides us all with great opportunities, but also challenges. Especially as it is not yet clear which technologies and standards will be implemented in the future. That is why many suppliers are still putting off making the necessary investments. HYDRUS 2.0 is ready for digitalisation, come what may. High connectivity forms the foundation of the product concept. With OMS 4.0.2 (Open Meter System Specification) and various interfaces, the new HYDRUS is open to other systems and components. Access to the Internet of Things is supplied as standard.

How do you overcome challenges?

With a battery life of up to 16 years, HYDRUS stays maintenance-free for long after the calibration period. The housing and lithium battery are recyclable. The extended HYDRUS series ranges from DN 15 to DN 300.

The HYDRUS 2.0 family will be available from April 2018.
