EQUIPPING SAFETY DEVICES TO DOMESTIC GAS METERS
Like intelligent diaphragm gas meters in which safety devices are built, with creative ideas and advanced technological capabilities nurtured in the land of Japan. Which is prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes, our gas meters significantly contribute to reducing explosions and fire resulting from gas leaks, that is to offer values that go beyond the realm of just measuring. As Japan's leading manufacturer of intelligent gas meters for cities and propane gases for household use, we have produced more than 50 million units of diaphragm and ultrasonic gas meters thus far.
BRINGING ADVANCEMENT IN METERING WITH AN AUTOMATIC METER READING AND FEE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This system allows you to manage the consumption of utilities and issue bills by the automated metering of water, gas and electricity for each tenant of large-scale facilities in commercial buildings, etc. More advanced management is even possible by using a variety of infrastructures to send and receive automatically read meter information, road survey data, and alarms for water leakage, gas leakage, reverse flow, etc.
SAFETY CONFIRMATION FOR ELDERLY PEOPLE
The safety confirmation system using water sensors combines the information of water consumption and the information of the absence or presence of the residents to determine and alert an abnormality to outside when there is no water usage for a certain period of time or when water keeps running for a long period of time. Our system has been introduced to a number of senior residences in Japan.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE HYDROGEN ENERGY SOCIETY
As a measure against global warming and energy issues, utilization of hydrogen has been proposed. One of the effective ways to realize this is to propagate stationary fuel cell systems. In the future, if the infrastructure of hydrogen gas is improved as much as the one there is for city gas, a system that measures the consumption of hydrogen gas safely and securely for a long period of time will be needed. We develop hydrogen meters of superior economy, safety and convenience in cooperation with research institutes and participate in demonstration experiments led by public institutions of Japan, in order to prepare for the upcoming hydrogen-driven society. We have also supplied our products to automobile manufacturers for the test system of fuel cell vehicles. In addition, we have a long history of providing gas flow sensors built in fuel cells.
