Smart Meter Reading and Installation

The utility industry is moving quickly to adopt smart meters and automatic meter reading (AMR) technologies, which bring cost savings and improved efficiency. Getac rugged computers bring you a solution for both smart meter installation and automatic meter reading that combines the features needed to deliver these benefits.

Fast and Accurate Readings

Using automatic meter reading has two benefits for utility companies; it improves accuracy compared to manual data entry, and increases worker productivity the speed of reading, allowing workers to do more readings per day. Getac works with our application partners to deliver these benefits to our customers.

Wi-Fi, 4G LTE and RFID Tablets for Drive-By AMR

Our tablets and laptops support Wi-Fi and RFID options to make drive-by automatic meter reading a fast and efficient experience. Our solution for smart meter reading and installation offers options with dedicated GPS, 4G LTE mobile broadband, RFID, IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and pass-through antenna ports for connectivity to support high-gain GPS, WWAN, and WLAN roof-mounted antennas.

Highly Readable Safety Checklists

For complying with legal standards and ensuring occupational safety is high, professionals often need to go through safety checklists and check manuals. Our LumiBond®2.0 technology delivers improved touch control and provides a display that is highly readable in areas with very different luminosity levels, providing optimal access to these critical materials.

One-Handed Operation with Digitizer Pen for Digital Record-Keeping

By adopting a digital solution that can send data wirelessly, utilities achieve increased efficiency and faster response times because information is available to management in real-time. Our digitizer pen (optional) and stylus also help replace pen and paper for record-keeping, while the devices’ cameras render many verbal descriptions unnecessary, thus making data easier to capture and transfer.

Long Battery Life

Field professionals have many things to worry about; running out of battery power should not be one of them. In addition to the long battery life of our devices, our solution also includes products with hot-swappable dual batteries and bridge battery options to ensure continuous operation.


Our hands-free options that include 2-point or 4-point carry accessories allow professionals to use both hands freely, improving safety and productivity.

Ruggedness that Saves You Money

Our solutions are inherently rugged, built to thrive in extreme weather conditions and withstand impacts and drops up to six feet. They are certified by international third parties to MIL-STD 810G and up to IP65 standards and ready to face the challenges professionals meet in their work. Longer lifecycles and less disruption to operations help you save money.

Barcode Reader

For smart meter reading, inspection, and installation, barcode scanners are needed to identify meters and verify the correct device is installed/read. Getac’s rugged devices offer 1D and 2D barcode reader options to help with these tasks..

Excellent TCO & ROI
