Landis+Gyr Announces Commercial Availability of FOCUS AX Polyphase
June 08, 2009
“The FOCUS AX Polyphase meter takes advantage of the best and most commonly utilized features available in the S4e meter and provides electric utilities with a low-cost alternative for applications that do not require all of the functionality of an S4e meter,” said John Kretzschmar, Product Manager of the Landis+Gyr Commercial and Industrial meter line.
The introduction of this product represents the most recent progression of the industry-leading Landis+Gyr FOCUS family of meters. The FOCUS solid-state electric meter was introduced in 2002, shortly followed by the FOCUS AX with service disconnect option in 2007. This latest polyphase version of the AX expands the options available to utilities for serving light commercial and industrial applications.
The FOCUS AX Polyphase meets applicable ANSI specifications and is designed to easily adapt to a variety of advanced metering communication technologies. It is available in multiple forms with programs and firmware that are upgradeable from a wireless or optical connection. The meter’s 120V-277V auto-ranging power supply is suitable for 277/480V applications. Other important product features include:
