(NASDAQ: ITRI), a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced today that its OpenWay®, CENTRON® Bridge and CENTRON II C12.19 meters have received UL 2735 certification from Underwriters Laboratories. The residential meters passed the voluntary safety standard tests and are officially UL-certified.

The certification provides added confidence in the deployment of OpenWay smart meters.
