Cavagna Group S.p.A. | Prodigi: the new ultrasonic gas meter for a smarter gas metering

Prodigi is the Smart Gas Meter introduced by Cavagna Group in 2018

Prodigi: gas meter features

This smart gas meter, for natural gas and LPG/propane, belongs to the new generation of smart devices developed and produced by Cavagna Group using an innovative, high-performance ultrasonic sensor.

Having no mechanical parts, the ultrasonic gas meter will not suffer from performance degradation. Furthermore, it has been recognized for its accuracy and high reliability.

Prodigi can send information using RF, GSM and ISM technology. In this way, it allows gas companies to manage their networks more efficiently, while at the same time letting them be more transparent with their customers. The result is a better-informed, more reliable consumption model. The gas meter’s notable main features include an ultrasonic flow sensor, stainless steel body, and step-motor valve for remote control and gas shut-off. It allows for smart billing, and it has a simple user interface. In addition, the communication battery can be replaced through the front cover. An earthquake sensor can also be included as an optional feature.

The Prodigi smart gas meter for the measurement of natural gas was previewed last June at the WGC in Washington. The propane version will be introduced in October during the WLPG Forum in Houston, Texas.

Gas metering: the Cavagna Group’s commitment to make it smart

To mark the product launch of Prodigi, Davide Cavagna, CEO of the Cavagna Group, had this to say.

“The natural gas and propane markets continue to grow, leading to more and more demand for relevant technological solutions. We at the Cavagna Group have made this one of our primary areas of focus, including as regards metering technology. As proof of our strategic vision, we have launched a brand-new product called Prodigi. We developed Prodigi with the knowledge that utility companies increasingly depend on accurate data in order to provide a more reliable service. One kind of smart meter that really stands out is the ultrasonic gas meter, precisely because it is so accurate over the long term. Indeed, it has no mechanical parts at all, meaning it is not subject to wear and tear. Prodigi is a truly innovative product that will satisfy the demands of a constantly expanding market.”
