LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, has surpassed a significant milestone with the shipment of its 1 millionth Intelis™ ultrasonic smart gas meter. Itron is the first vendor in North America to ship 1 million residential ultrasonic meters. Itron will showcase the award-winning smart gas meter and other innovative solutions that are optimizing natural gas delivery systems at the American Gas Association's Annual Operations Conference held from May 1 – 4 in Grapevine, TX.
The Intelis smart gas meter extends intelligence to the edge of the network, evolving the gas distribution network from a one-way gas delivery mechanism to an interactive energy network that can deliver gas more safely and efficiently. Featuring an internal shutoff valve, the Intelis meter automatically stops gas flow if a dangerous situation is detected, ensuring safety and reliability. This safety feature operates autonomously when the meter senses high flow or high temperatures, such as open fuel lines or fires. Another feature built within the meter is its ability to alert the utility when it detects potential theft or meter tampering, further enhancing safety and revenue protection.
“With more than 1 million meters shipped across North America, Intelis is changing the value proposition for gas customers from metering and automation to enabling intelligence at the edge of the network,” said John Marcolini, senior vice president of Networked Solutions at Itron. “We are excited to work with our customers to transform the distribution network and ensure the safety of citizens and promote the well-being of people around the world. Together, we are delivering gas more safely and efficiently.”
