Landis+Gyr reaches 10 million advanced meter milestone


Atlanta, GA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — August 6, 2012 – Landis+Gyr has hit the 10 million milestone with its FOCUS AX meters – a best seller for the company in North America.
The E-350 FOCUS AX, a solid state advanced electric meter with integrated service switch, was launched in 2007 and production eclipsed the 10 million mark in July of this year. Companies that have deployed the meter include PG&E, Pepco Holdings, United Illuminating, Oncor, AEP Texas, CoServ Electric, and Woodruff Electric Cooperative among others.

“The FOCUS AX was designed with the future requirements of advanced metering in mind,” said Steven Schamber, vice president and general manager of Energy Measurement Products at Landis+Gyr. “Its success hinges both on its industry leading features and applications, as well as a build quality that gives it outstanding reliability.”

With an optional service switch integrated into the meter base, utilities can take advantage of the 200 A relay to manage service remotely using an advanced metering communications system. A single circuit board design, mounted at the front of the meter, allows room for modular advanced metering communications devices to be integrated, including the Gridstream(TM) platform, and provides the utility with interval data that is being used for load and outage management as well as grid automation.
