From the Meter to Your Screen
Vutility’s PulseDrop reads dry pulse outputs from any meter that provides a dry pulse output. Dry pulse outputs are an industry standard for most electric, water and natural meters around the world.
The PulseDrop transits the cumulative total number of pulses it has seen. The PulseDrop looks for a voltage interruption generated by the dry pulse. This voltage interruption is then registered by the PulseDrop and the pulse count is recorded.
The number of pulses counted is collected and archived then transmitted on the interval configured by the customer. The PulseDrop tracks the number of pulses generated in a given time period and the rate of consumption. Vutility measures the cumulative value so that in the event a data transmission is lost the cumulative value is never lost and the rate of consumption between data received can be calculated.

“A very simplistic solution. The fact that it is battery-operated is even better because we don’t need a licensed electrician. It’s cheaper, scalable and faster to deploy.”
