Telit Wireless unveils ME70-169 smart metering for European utility industry

Greentech Lead Europe: Telit Wireless Solutions, a
provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and value-added services, has
introduced a smart metering solution, ME70-169, for the European utility

The new module operates on European license-free
frequency of 169MHz allowing manufacturers to quickly integrate utility
metering products which meet regulatory compliance for short-range radio link
without diverting development focus from the core metering functionality.

“The ME70-169 was conceived to completely table the
discussion of make-versus-buy with our AMR customers,” said Emmanuel
Maçon-Dauxerre, Energy Segment sales director at Telit Wireless Solutions. “In
that small package we included some truly unmatched radio performance with
additional characteristics that can significantly lower BOM cost and complexity
for the utility meter design integrating it.”

Because the ME70-169 is equipped with an ATX-Mega
processor, customer applications can be made to run right inside the module
potentially eliminating the high cost of a second application processor core in
the design. As a member of the Telit Short Range module family, the ME70-169 is
fully compatible with its ZigBee and Low-Power Mesh counterparts, as well as
the ME50 series M-Bus lower-radio-power products.

The ME70-169 is made available in convenient mounting
solutions with a range of development tools and associated products such as
cellular gateways.
