Integrated energy management products provider Landis+Gyr has announced 13 new contracts this year from North American utilities for Gridstream PLX, a power line carrier (PLC) advanced metering network.

Landis+Gyr notes that Gridstream PLX provides utilities with 15-minute interval data from each meter on a continuous basis. In addition, the company says PLX offers unsolicited outage notifications, distribution line monitoring and time-synched snapshots of demand or voltage levels across entire systems.

"The excitement around Gridstream PLX shows that there still is a demand for PLC-based networks among many utilities," comments Randy Edwards, director of product management at Landis+Gyr. "And because PLX runs on the same head-end operating software as our Gridstream RF network, utilities are able to blend the technologies where it makes the most business sense."

The company adds that it is developing a load management solution for the PLX platform that will utilize the latest load management software for demand response applications.
