Measurement Canada approves Landis+Gyr meters


Ottawa, ON, Canada — (METERING.COM) — October 8, 2007 – Measurement Canada, an agency of Industry Canada offering services that include evaluating and certifying the accuracy of measuring equipment, has given Landis+Gyr Inc. a 10 year initial re-verification approval for resealing on its already approved S4e and FOCUS™ AL electricity meters.

“Previously we had approval for 6 year re-verification; now that it has been increased to 10 years, this will allow utilities to save moneyA over a period of time because they won’t have to reseal as often,” said Steve Schamber, Director of Product Management, Landis+Gyr. “We’ve proven to Measurement Canada that our manufacturing operations and our attention to quality are of the highest standards, which then is reflected back in the cost-savings for the utility.”

Landis+Gyr’s S4e commercial and industrial meter and the FOCUS residential meter are both solid-state meter platforms that offer flexibility for modular AMR communications. The S4e offers accuracy and reliability and has the only endpoint solution available with 480A K-base option. The FOCUS meter provides the utility industry with a reliable, economical, quality solid-state Residential meter platform and with its unique single circuit board design allows for easy integration of AMR for better overall endpoint performance.

In addition to seal accreditation, Landis+Gyr has also earned Measurement Canada approval of many of its AMR/AMI endpoints and several of its manufacturing processes.
