Combining the latest hardware and software products, Energy Management System (EMS) provides total water resource management and conservation solutions for clients. "We have a comprehensive line of electronic water meters to satisfy different customers," says general manager James Yang. "We support our customers from beginning to end, from choosing the right project to providing after-sales service." Designing and manufacturing water meters over the past 20 years, EMS has been focusing on electronic water meters because of their inherent advantages over mechanical ones. Besides their non-wear nature, electronic water meters are accurate and have intelligent functions such as the ability to indicate if pipes are leaking. All EMS products and software support the Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) systems wherein individual water meters are linked to a central control and monitoring base. EMS is seeking telecommunications partners to provide the communications backbone for its AMR and AMI projects. The company has designed and manufactured transfer interface equipment. When combined with the Google Maps system, it enables water utility administrators to remotely monitor and control water flow and pressure. EMS has also developed the meter data recorder, which can store information for further analyses concerning flow rate, usage pattern and leakage detection, all of which are crucial in water management and conservation. "We have also introduced and used in some projects the non-magnetic electronic water meter, which is totally safe from pilferage by people who use magnets to manipulate water meter readings," Yang says. The company will focus on the District Metering Area (DMA) concept to further help conserve water. DMA breaks down the whole service area into smaller manageable districts for easy monitoring, especially of water leakages. EMS is open to partnerships with agents, distributors and other utilities companies overseas. "We can provide water meters with the same functions as those coming from Europe and the United States but at lower prices," Yang says.
