MCLite represents the best in drive-by data collection and command and control capabilities from Itron automated meter reading. Building on Itron’s industry-leading handheld reading products, MCLite is an innovative combination fit to handle both drive-by and walk-by routes for the ultimate in operational flexibility.
The Itron Mobile Data Collector Lite is compact enough to fit in any vehicle and can be easily transferred—eliminating the need for an automobile dedicated specifically to meter reading. The Itron Mobile Data Collector Lite offers read performance, accuracy and ease-of use, all in one cost-effective solution, whether for electric, gas or water, from monthly consumption reads to the collection of interval data.
Up to 10,000 meters can be collected from an Itron Mobile Data Collector Lite on a single route, compared to the few hundred meters on the average handheld walking route. Meter technicians can collect reads while driving at posted residential speeds between 20-30MPH, or they can remove the handheld from the in-vehicle dock for wand, probed or keyed reads while reading the normal cycle route. When using an FC300 handheld equipped with an optional internal radio, meter technicians can also program endpoints or do field investigations using FDM.
