Mitsubishi Electric to enhance smart meter business through collaboration with Echelon

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will globally enhance business relating to smart meters in collaboration with its partner Echelon Corporation.

Mitsubishi Electric will integrate Echelon's Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) into its lineup of smart meter products, which are designed for international markets.

Smart meters are advanced electricity meters with communication functions.

Mitsubishi Electric's new smart meters will incorporate grid-sensing and communication technologies based on Echelon's OGSP and its Networked Energy Services (NES) software as well as Mitsubishi Electric's proprietary sensing and metering technologies.

The products will be manufactured at Mitsubishi Electric Automation (Thailand) in Bangkok and PT. Melcoinda in Bogor, Indonesia, both international subsidiaries of Mitsubishi Electric.

Mitsubishi Electric launched its electricity meter business at its Fukuyama Works, Japan, in 1946. Since then, the company has steadily expanded this business globally, developing satellite production facilities internationally to meet local demand. In recent years, the company's focus has turned to smart meters.
