Optical Reader

Customer: Aquametro AG

Aquareader® is an optical read-out module for water meters, that on request automatically reads identification number, nominal diameter, fluid and the current meter reading via M-BUS or CS interface.

The device configures itself automatically within 30 seconds after installation using the data stored on the RFID chip built into the cover and does not require a battery as it is supplied with energy when connected to a powered bus.

The Aquareader® is available with three connection options: two connector types for BKW and Volga plus one version which allows connection of a cable (enables IP68).

Washing machine meter selector-switch

Customer: SIPA Verteilanlagen AG

The meter selector-switch for washing-machines consists of two components, the control unit installed in the power distributor and the card reader, which is mounted next to the washing facilities. The meter selector-switch is operated by an individual keycard assigned to each tenant.

WZU-Contactless System

The controller, which is the heart of the SIPA WZU-Contactless system, is installed at the power distributor and provides the switching between the meters. When the washing machine is activated by the card reader, the meter is switched to the counter of the correct apartment, charging the account of the respective user.

Card reader

The card reader is the interface to the user. An intuitive design allows easy operation: simply put the card into the card reader and remove it when the wash cycle is finished.


The keycard cannot be manipulated or copied preventing use of the system by unauthorized persons and can be easily blocked and replaced, if lost or lost or stolen.
