Smart meter manufacturer EDMI and power line communications (PLC) solutions provider gridComm have inked a deal to make narrowband PLC smart meters.

Under the agreement, EDMI will utilise gridComm's GC2200 OFDMA technology to develop PLC smart meters such as the DIN Rail MK30 and MK31E split meters. Pre-integrated with gridComm's GC-Net, a networking software that performs self-adaptive and auto-network routing configurations to operate in noise-prone power line environments, the PLC smart meters tout robust and reliable communications that ensure timely read-back of data.

"gridComm brings together disruptive but cost-effective PLC solutions that work," said Leu Yew Seng, general manager of EDMI's International Business Unit. "Working with gridComm allows us to get to market quickly, which helps us shorten development and deployment time. This enables us to meet the demand for smart PLC metering systems as power grids migrate their networks to AMI implementation."
