Landis+Gyr takes smart metering to next level with E35C communication module
The E35C supports a multi-energy AMI solution and can be connected to up to four gas, heat and water meters through MBus, making them accessible from a central station. Integrating multiple energy forms into just one system allows a utility to provide services to other heating and water companies that operate in the same area. Additionally, it can connect to an in-home display unit supporting personal energy management. Consumers benefit from being able to monitor and lower energy usage, costs and carbon footprint in real-time.
The E35C is fully interoperable and runs on communication technologies such as GPRS, to be followed by PLC and Ethernet in the near future. It is upgradeable through a ‘plug and play’ function. Furthermore, as the meter stays in the network and only the module is replaced, a utility can save up to 50 percent on its investment.
As a complete solutions provider, Landis+Gyr is the only company that can guarantee the interoperability of devices with those of other manufacturers. Through M-bus, the company has started to integrate third party gas, heat and water meters into its E350 products.
“E350 is a modular approach to changing or unclear market requirements our customers face. Known for technological and market adaptability, the meter offers utilities the flexibility needed to become a successful player in an ever changing market. Its multi-energy possibilities and interoperability displays Landis+Gyr’s commitment to providing best-in-class solutions over the entire metering value chain,” says Juerg Haas, Product Manager, Landis+Gyr EMEA.
