Your Key Pad
The keypad is also referred to as Consumer Interface Unit (CIU) and is mounted inside your building. It communicates with your prepaid water meter by means of a wireless radio frequency (RF) link.
The keypad displays information about your meter, consumption and available credit and is also used to load credit by entering your 20 digit credit tokens. The keypad automatically updates every hour with the latest data from the meter or can update immediately on request. Its display alternates every 10 seconds between the following three messages:
- Credit Mode: The type and status of credit dispensed (Credit, Credit Low, No Credit, Free, Free Low, Special, Life Line, Emergency Credit & Test)
- Credit Remaining: Credit available in kilolitres (kL)
- Special Message: Meter Locked, Leak, Battery Low, Error xx
