A.P. Systems, a leading Italian subsystem designer for the meter market, has selected Wavecom’s wireless solutions for its newest line of advanced communications subsystems for automatic electricity meters.
A.P. Systems’ new energy meter subsystem for remote monitoring and control of electricity uses the latest cellular wireless communication technology that will allow energy providers to retrofit existing meters or, create hubs connecting meters, with communication capabilities.
The add-on functionality developed by A.P. Systems makes for easy adoption in both the consumer and enterprise markets. Wavecom and A.P. Systems have been working together since 2002 on technical development, including a state-of-the-art, turnkey terminal that can be attached to certain existing energy meters, thus turning them into ‘smart’ meters. Wavecom’s Open AT® Software Suite may be tailored to a specific market.
