Arad Technologies Ltd., based in Israel and part of the Arad Group, has completed the development of a water meter with an electromechanical register. The Interpreter is operated electronically, and has a liquid crystal display (LCD) that shows volume and instantaneous flow rate in all possible units.

A miniature electric engine operates a mechanical odometer in parallel that gives both a mechanical and a digital volume indication. The Interpreter is incorporated inside the Dialog 3G – the AMR RF transceiver unit used in all Arad Group products. It can also be installed on most existing water meters, allowing conventional water meters to be upgraded to 3G transmitting technology.
