Aclara Technologies LLC has announced that its Two-Way Automatic Communications System (TWACS) will now support the Landis+Gyr E330 FOCUS AX Polyphase commercial meter. Aclara notes that other commercial meters supported by its Universal Metering Transponder (UMT) for TWACS power line communications technology include General Electric kV2c and Elster A3 ALPHA meters.

The company says the UMT for the FOCUS AX Polyphase meter allows Aclara's TWACS power line communications technology to take advantage of characteristics of the meter, such as its ability to handle over-the-air firmware upgrades. In addition, Aclara says the UMT utilizes an algorithm to improve module communications.

The UMT for the FOCUS AX Polyphase meter is factory-installed in the meter and is available in 120 V as well as 240-277 V modules.
