Hunt Technologies Inc. and Landis+Gyr have announced plans for a joint product development project. The contract formalises an unofficial but long-standing co-operative alliance between the two companies. The first product to be developed is a modular powerline carrier TS1 one-way system solution endpoint from Hunt Technologies, incorporated with the single-phase, solid state Landis+Gyr FOCUS meter. The projected commercial release date of the Hunt TS1/FOCUS solution is mid-2004, and a solution for a combined TS2 product line is likely to follow thereafter.
