Liberty Lake, Wash.-based Itron Inc. has introduced OpenWay AURUM, the company's newest product tailored to the Brazilian market.

Itron says the new meter is housed in a secure box, which is mounted on a utility pole rather than on a house or business, reducing the possibility of meter tampering. In addition, AURUM takes advantage of Itron's RF mesh network to provide a cost-effective solution for advanced metering and smart metering initiatives.

“Itron is leveraging its technology and global smart grid expertise to bring a solid solution that meets the unique needs of Brazilian utilities,” says Gadner Vieira, general manager of Itron’s energy group in LAM.
