Hand Held Unit for Data Acquisition

Hand Held Unit

Recording data for energy meter deployment in the field needs a strong hardware.

Our CLOU software solutions, e.g. for field deployment management (FDM) are using this type of hand held unit (HHU).

The deployment module of our AMI system or 3rd party systems can be connected to our FDM software.


A proper and timely data-acquisition is essential for the success of AMI projects.
Here is an example for usage in the field, including acquisition of the meter location
