New Gas Meter Leverages Intelis Gas Meter Platform and EDMI Firmware
Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, today announced a collaboration with EDMI Limited, a global smart metering solutions leader, to develop and launch a SMETS2-compliant gas meter for the United Kingdom. Taking advantage of Itron’s Intelis ultrasonic platform and EDMI’s SMETS2 compliant firmware, this meter will address the growing demand in the region by bringing to market a complete solution to safely and reliably manage natural gas delivery.
The collaborative solution meets the SMETS2 specifications, which regulates advanced electricity and gas meters in the UK. Taking advantage of Itron’s Intelis platform and ultrasonic metrology, the meter integrates EDMI’s SMETS2-compatible firmware. Dramatically increasing coverage to the UK market, this joint initiative will bring together Itron’s established gas expertise and EDMI’s SMETS2 accredited firmware.
“Through this collaboration, we have combined Itron’s innovative metrology with EDMI’s industry leading SMETS2 compliant firmware, giving utilities an additional choice for their gas meter provider,” said Justin Patrick, senior vice president of Device Solutions at Itron. “Itron is committed to supporting the smart metering roll out in the region. This collaboration, together with our SMETS2 electricity offering, demonstrates our continued efforts to deliver proven smart solutions.”
“EDMI is excited to collaborate with Itron on their UK Gas Meter, building on EDMI’s strong focus on security, quality and reliability of its proven SMETS accredited firmware, which will enable Itron to produce a SMETS2 compliant gas meter for its UK customers to safely and securely manage gas delivery while supporting efficient energy usage,” said Alan Masterman, Managing Director of EDMI Europe Limited.
