The Tehama Wireless MDT records data from various meter types and transmits it toward the DCAP. Its small compact form running off two AA batteries provides up to 5 years of battery life with transmissions at 15 minute intervals. An on-board real time clock can timestamp readings at the source and back them up in local storage should a network outage occur.
