Itron Introduces Product for Brazil

Itron has introduced a new product aimed at the Brazil market.

The OpenWay AURUM product combines metering and communications technology housed in a secure box mounted on a utility pole.  The product is designed to combat widespread tampering issues in Brazil.  Losses in Brazil’s electricity distribution network are responsible for about fifteen percent of the power purchased by distributors.  Mounting utility meters on the top of utility poles will reduce power diversion by end users.
