Landis+Gyr, Mueller Systems to develop AMI module

Metering company Landis+Gyr paired with Mueller Systems to integrate Landis+Gyr’s latest RF Mesh IP communications technology in Mueller Systems advanced water AMI module.

This project will provide utilities using Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream AMI solution another choice for advanced water metering, featuring a robust communications and distributed intelligence platform for billing, leak detection and remote monitoring of water distribution assets.

“Our latest IPv6 network technology creates a solid foundation for modernizing water distribution systems, and we are excited to partner with Mueller Systems to bring a dynamic metering solution to our customers,” said Gary High, Senior Vice President of Smart Gird Solutions at Landis+Gyr.

In addition to IPv6 communication capabilities, the RF Mesh IP module adds higher output power, faster processing and more memory for edge applications. It also delivers full programmability of transmission frequency and data intervals for advanced water meter and network capabilities. The new module is scheduled for commercial availability in April 2018.

Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream AMI solution uses a standards-based IoT network to bring communication capabilities and local intelligence to electric, gas and water meters. The network is currently in use in some of the largest grid modernization projects in the world.
