ARG 18


Ami Tech's Automatic Meter Reader is an intelligent embedded device supporting GSM / GPRS technologies. ARG18 reads data using proprietary/standard/international protocols from energy/water meters. The final output is sent to the data centre in common data format (CDF) which is in compliance to the MIO Sand other internationally accepted standards.

Ami Tech's Automatic Meter Reader is indigenously designed and developed at its research and development center in Hyderabad. It is a proven,rugged, compact, scalable and cost effective product. Ami Tech has extensively worked on DLMS, MODBUS, IEC, PACT, PROFIBUS and various other international standard protocols. Ami Tech has rich experience in embedded system based solutions addressing critical and real time applications.
