Elster Electricity, LLC, a provider of AMI solutions worldwide, has announced an agreement with Hunt Technologies to continue offering the Hunt AirPoint™ AMR module for the Elster Type AB1R electromechanical meter. This provides more choices for utilities that use the Itron Mobile Collection System for mobile meter reading, as the AirPoint is fully compatible with the Itron technology, handheld collection devices and software platforms.

The single phase Type AB1R meter is equipped with an AMR module installed under the cover. It supports multiple AMR systems and meets or exceeds the ANSI standards for electricity metering. Customers can order the meter equipped with an AirPoint module, or they can retrofit it themselves.
