The Sensus Vehicle Gateway Base Station (VGB) acquires data from field-based instruments such as utility meters and other diagnostic instruments. The VGB is a compact and portable radio device, so it can be used in any vehicle equipped with a 12-volt DC power outlet.
The VGB can read any device equipped with FlexNet® communication network drive-by technology. It is controlled with AutoVu®, Sensus' software program specially designed for operating their drive-by meter reading equipment. Simply load the desired reading route into your laptop computer and drive along the prescribed route.
Data is collected as your vehicle travels in proximity of meters and other instruments on the route. You can also manually enter information such as route notes. And easily edit route configurations when necessary. A simple plug-and-play interface allows you to transfer the collected data directly into your billing system.
