Zug, Switzerland --- (METERING.COM) --- February 12, 2008 – Landis+Gyr, a provider of advanced metering solutions for utilities, has reached a milestone with the production of its one millionth industrial and commercial meter earlier this month. To mark the occasion, the one millionth meter was manufactured in a golden colored case, and was placed in the Landis+Gyr meter museum.
The ZMD and ZMG meters, designed for Landis+Gyr’s industrial applications, have one of the most stringent specification guidelines in the metering industry. The level of accuracy needed is far above that required for residential meters. The development of this range was started more than ten years ago when Landis+Gyr took the step of moving towards a modular system, whereby customers can choose meters with or without communications, and in a variety of protocols, whether it be GPRS or PLC. At the time this was a revolutionary step, one vindicated by many competitors copying the idea in the following years.
Andy Spreiter, Executive Vice President and CFO of Landis+Gyr, said: "This impressive number of sold meters demonstrates that the ZMD/G range has been a worldwide success, being sold in more than 50 countries, from China to Germany to Spain."
