A HHDR is used to collect data from the field and to download that data to a database to generate reports for meters in the districts. The data can be collected intermittently or on a daily basis since these are not route based data collectors. The data is collected by means of a hand held portable unit that scans a bar code identification label that is permanently affixed to the meter. Data is then entered by means of a keypad or a scan sheet and the operator goes to the next meter. At the end of the day the unit is brought back to the office and the information is downloaded into the database. This provides a quick and error-free way to enter data better than manually entering the information into a logbook.
