ATLANTA, Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Landis+Gyr (Swiss: LAND.SW) announces the release of a first-of-its-kind advanced meter with an integrated remote service switch to safely manage 320 ampere residential applications.
With the size of the average home at a historic high, more electronics in the home, and the growing adoption of electric vehicles, many of today's residences have large electrical loads where typical 200 amp residential service is no longer adequate. For utilities, this has accelerated the need for solutions to safely deliver and manage 320 amp residential service.
With this release, Landis+Gyr announces the integration of a 320 amp disconnect switch with its E351 FOCUS AXe-SD Class 320 electric meter to provide safe remote disconnect and reconnect operations for installations with larger electrical services.
"Landis+Gyr has enhanced our proven motor-driven service switch to safely perform at a full 320 amp class current. With an increase in the number of homes equipped with 320 amp electric service, this industry-leading meter option uniquely enables utilities to realize a key benefit of AMI across their customer base," said Doug Jeademann, Vice President of Product Lines at Landis+Gyr.
The FOCUS AXe-SD is available for order from Landis+Gyr distributors and sales representatives.
