Landis+Gyr has released its factory-installed version of the RF-based AirPoint MX AMR endpoint, which combines Hunt Technologies’ ERT-equivalent AirPoint™ module with Landis+Gyr’s electromechanical MX meter platform. The install-ready endpoint is a direct replacement for the Itron 41ER-1 ERT MX endpoint – Hunt’s AirPoint technology provides the same features and functions as the Itron 41ER-1 ERT MX, and is designed to interface with the Itron Mobile Collection System 1.0 and 2.0, as well as off-site collection systems.

The AirPoint MX endpoint provides compatibility with existing mobile reading systems deployed by Itron, and in addition offers low-cost implementation with rapid ROI, direct register reads, alert of energy theft and meter tampering and load profiling and forecasting.

A standard retrofit kit containing the required mounting posts and screws to secure an AirPoint module into an MX meter is also available.
