MARS Company Raises the Standard with Key Customer Requested Product Enhancements
For Immediate Release
OCALA, Fla., June 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – MARS Company, a global leader in water meter testing and technology solutions, announced today that it has launched new features for the RCM-100 Product Line. The RCM-100 has been enhanced to include key customer requested features including: (i) A Modular 3.5mm Programming Interface, (ii) Field Replaceable Battery, (iii) Tool-less Wire Termination, and (iv) full RCM-100 backward compatibility.
The RCM-100 is a remote primary display with the ability to communicate with all types of pulse equipped water meter registers. The customers and meter readers can access the meter reading without having access to the water meter itself. It is available in single and dual register models with color coding for hot (red) or cold (blue) water usage.
The meter reading is displayed on a 6-digit LCD powered by a 3.6 Volt Lithium battery. The heart of the RCM-100 is a micro-processor to interrogate an encoder or store counts from any pulse type-metering device. The LCD display continually indicates the current meter reading.
The RCM-100 has a modular 3.5mm programming interface /communication connector that can only be accessed when the unit cover is removed. This connector allows the dedicated programming device to setup and configure the unit.
MARS Company will be exhibiting at AWWA 2016 Trade show, June 20-22 in Chicago, IL at booth 1224. For more information about MARS Company and its M3 2016 Enterprise Software, please visit www.MARSwater.com.
