    Re: YITRAN PLC Modem IC

    Hello Yuri,

     

    I am from Argentina. Our company also produces smart meters using Yitran IT-700 PIM module.

     

    I  am in permanent contact with people in Israel, to follow on the  situation of Yitran. So far, what I have been told is that Yitran has  been acquired by an investment group, and is going to return to business  in a few months. However, I could not assure you that this will happen.

     

    Did you find any alternative solution ?

    I am open to discuss any ideas or exchange information for mutual benefit, in order to solve the Yitran problem.

     

    Best Regards,

        Hello Yuri,

         

        Yes, we are facing the same situation. They also "keep" a credit from a previous order we have prepaid but was not delivered.

        However, we have decided to go ahead and purchase again from Yitran. We expect (hope) them to deliver on time and "start again".

        After the analysis of many many PLC alternatives on the paper, we have found that Yitran has the best products, not only the IT-700 but the IT-900 (wich we did not test, but is very promising), and the forecoming IT-1000 (if they finish they development) is going to be a great product.

         

        If you happen to find or develop a better PLC solution or a replacement, keep me in touch, we can gladly test it because we have a vast experience on PLC transmission.

         

        Best regards,

        Pablo.

            Good day

             

             

            Sorry to enter your discussion, but we also had experience working with the same supplier and logically we have an interest. Did Yitran start any shipments to your orders in this year or is it still pending?

              Dear Vadim,

               

              Since Yitran "apparently" started again, after its aquisition, we have been negotiating with them for our next shipments, the first of it should be before the end of May. I will belive when I have the chips here !!

              But all the signs indicate that Yitran will continue operations, and will keep producing the same products (IT700, PIM I700, IT900 etc).

               

              By the way, I am interested in taking a look on what products you use Yitran´s product on. Are they smart meters? Do you have a web page?  Are you planning any subsitutive component instead of Yitran´s ?

               

              Our web page in english is this:  http://www.metering.com.ar/en/index.php

               

              We are open to any kind of cooperation.

               

              Best regards,

              Pablo Gaggino

              Yitran company has been bankrupted, that's all. No one will work with these deceivers and liars.
              We (the Chinese company) refused to work with Yitran early this year, because there are no engineers there.
              What happens in Yitran, it is the clearance sale, they sell the remaining chips.
              Our advice, as soon as possible go to other technology, like TI or ST and you will have no problems in the future.

              Best redards.

    Re: YITRAN PLC Modem IC

    Please note everyone that the messages forwarded here, once under the name of Ivan and
    then under the name of Yang from China is actually the same person. He is a
    former employee of Yitran, which some of you know as he was a sales person
    here. This person tries in anyway he can to hurt Yitran name.I am sure that
    although Yitran had its dificulties, you could sense and for sure sense now, that
    Yitran is combined by honest people beside the great technology.I can assure
    you that Yitran is now strong financially and some of you can already feel the
    low pressure on payments terms etc.. Yitran has a large inventory of its
    components and it is now going to develop a new version of its legacy chip in
    order to lower its price so you can all benefit from it. Please try to ignore
    the bad mouthing, the falt messages conveyed here and consider them as a
    frastration. Thank you ! Avner Matmor

      Dear Mr. Matmor,

       

      I belong to the company DISCAR in Argentina, Yitran´s customers since years, producers of smart meters.

       

      It was very nice and positive to read your post in this forum. As I have posted before, we belive that Yitran has overcome its financial dificulties, and we are going to continue our support for your components. I strongly hope Yitran is not going to disappoint us.

      We are very exited to hear that new products are going to come, and its for sure that gradually we are going to incorporate them to our designs. We do belive that Yitran´s PLC products are the best solutions in market, and with IT-900 and IT-1000 could be even better.

       

      I hope Yitran can have again a strong and growing business.

       

      Best Regards,

      Pablo Gaggino

       

      By the way: we have received our first shipment from the new Yitran, and everything was perfect.
