Itron expands ZigBee portfolio

Liberty Lake, Wash., June 7, 2012 — Itron expanded its ZigBee Smart Energy-certified product portfolio across the company's energy product line.

ZigBee Smart Energy is a global, standards-based wireless mesh networking technology that is used to connect dramatically different devices. Itron's newly certified products include the EM425 meter, an IEC-certified electric smart meter for the UK market, and the M2 Gateway, an Itron communications module that enables third party meters to communicate on Itron's RF mesh network.

With these new certifications, Itron rounds out its portfolio of ZigBee-certified products, helping ensure interoperability in the smart grid. Itron has been certifying ZigBee Smart Energy products since the specification's inception in May 2008.

Itron's ZigBee adoption extends domestically to ANSI-certified meters and internationally to IECcertified meters. It also extends to integrated products and communications modules, incorporating ZigBee into third party products.
