Automatic meter reading component bracket system


The invention relates to an automatic meter reading (AMR) component bracket system in the utility industry. Implementation of AMR for water meters particularly but not exclusively poses particular problems due to the harsh environmental conditions and severe size constraints that are frequently encountered. The present invention provides an AMR component system comprising a supporting structure 72 having a closing arm74 arranged to extend around and at least partially embrace an AMR component container 10, 12. The arm has a flange or lip 78 for limiting the axial movement of the AMR component container along the container's main axis direction. A later embodiment relates to a back plate 86 comprising at least one relative protrusion(s) or recess(es) linked for engagement and positioning of the bracket system.
