Kyocera Wireless Corp., a global manufacturer of CDMA wireless handsets and devices, and TransData Inc., manufacturer of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) products and solutions for the utility industry worldwide, have announced their collaboration on TransData’s MARK-V StarBurst meter. This is the first electricity meter to integrate the award-winning Kyocera 200 Module to bring real time, CDMA2000 1XRTT wireless communications ability to commercial and industrial revenue metering installations.

The MARK-V StarBurst meter is a powerful, two-way smart metering system offering direct compatibility with existing data collection systems to ensure improved business productivity without the need for costly infrastructure upgrades. It supports the real-time data gathering requirements of newly established energy conservation programmes currently being rolled out at many large utilities.
