Landis+Gyr Inc. has launched its newest mass-market residential meter platform – a low-cost, solid state kWh-only meter known as FOCUS™. The meter design will accommodate modular AMR communications, a KYZ-option output board or integrated (shared circuit board) AMR solutions.
A key product attribute is optical re-configuration through the meter cover. Users can select from displayable positive, negative, net and added (security) kWh metrics and change the displayed information, order and digits. The FOCUS kWh technology includes digital multiplication measurement, Landis+Gyr ASIC, micro-processor, non-volatile memory and a factory programming option. The meter is designed for a 15+ year life.
