Jackson, MS -- LEC, leaders in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enablement, will showcase its new smart metering technology – iQ PULSE™ -- for the first time during WEFTEC 2019 on September 23 – 25 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

iQ PULSE is LEC’s just-released, smart metering technology that is designed to easily and cost-effectively integrate with a wide variety of existing meters in order to simplify AMR deployments. The solution is inclusive of a highly rugged cellular endpoint, as well as robust software that provides needed data analytics, alarming and billing integration capabilities.

“The iQ PULSE solution offers municipalities a new and less proprietary approach to AMR, making this product launch disruptive to the common market,” said LEC’s Vice President of IIoT Brian Rosema. “The solution revolves around our development of an IP68 rated, submersible cellular endpoint with a 10 year replaceable battery. This device was key to bringing this solution to market in a highly competitive manner.”

Live, in-booth demonstrations of iQ PULSE will be available to all WEFTEC 2019 attendees in booth #461, located in the main exhibit hall. WEFTEC is the largest annual event of its kind in North America, offering water quality professionals the best in water quality education and training.

LEC will also bring two of its IIoT technology partners to WEFTEC 2019 to highlight iQ PULSE, and the award-winning remote control, monitoring and data collection solution, iQ2™. Representatives from U.S. Cellular and Option will join LEC in booth #461 to demonstrate and discuss the numerous benefits of the iQ PULSE and iQ2 technologies.

LEC’s iQ PULSE technology is immediately available to the water industry.
