Landis+Gyr, a global provider of meters and metering systems, has completed its second-level Performance and Compliance (PACII) testing for three automatic meter reading (AMR) technology modules on the FOCUS® extended range meter platform. Each module/meter endpoint has now been released for commercial production and shipment.
The modules validated for the FOCUS K-base meter include Cellnet’s Interleave high/low radio frequency (RF) technology module, the EMT-3F powerline carrier module from TWACS® by DCSI and Hunt Technologies’ TS1 powerline carrier module.
FOCUS 2K self-contained meters are designed for Class 480 installations and are capable of metering intyermittent loads up to 600A. No current transformer (CT) installation is required because the CT is contained in the meter base.
