IUS Technologies Unveils High Precision Utility Smart Sensor to the U.S.
With flexibility at its core, IUS Technologies is leading the pack with the
future of sensor technologies
ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- July 23, 2013
Balancing the newest initiatives trickling down from the Obama administration,
IUS Technologies, has introduced their new smart sensor for distribution
automation to the U.S. utility market and cater to the precise and intricate
needs of multiple utilities. A subsidiary of the $1B Vitzro Group from South
Korea, the VS2000 is the latest release following IUS VS1000 and VS3000,
becoming the most precise instrument of the VS series. It is an economical and
flexible sensor with an industry leading accuracy of 0.2 percent.
This new sensor includes a completely integrated solution that supports a wide
variety of communication options. It is ideal for Conservation Voltage
Reduction, Volt VAR Control, Volt VAR Optimization, Theft Detection and other
distribution automation applications. The VS2000 enables utilities to reduce
outage frequency and duration, as well as reducing energy losses, which is
crucial due to the current elevated costs for electricity.
“With the radical changes currently impacting today’s energy market, the
flexible technology that we are introducing is imperative to the growth and
improvement of the smart grid,” says Sang Lee, CEO of IUS Technologies. “The
ability to work direct with our utility partners on the creation of the VS2000
has made it one of the most accurate and efficient sensors available today.”
Since it’s inception in 2010, IUS Technologies has been making waves in the
U.S. utility industry with their highly efficient and affordable technology.
Constructed to be extraordinarily flexible, the VS2000 is currently being line
tested with both Georgia Power and Baltimore Gas & Electric. As with its
predecessor the VS1000, the VS2000 incorporates improved asset utilization,
improved capacity management, enhanced load forecasting, and accurate facility
planning. However the VS2000 model incorporates both 3-phase voltage and
current monitoring in a single device.
Providing utilities with the ability to make the right decisions throughout
the distribution grid and customer satisfaction are key for this device. It
provides automated monitoring and alerts to the utility and constantly feeds
in actionable real time data, from a variety of power measurements to ensure
customers receive quality power to alerts from energy theft and mass service
interruptions. All of which are necessary to maintaining a consistent and
reliable power grid. Manufacturing for the VS2000 as well as the entire VS
series will take place at IUS’s Alpharetta, GA manufacturing facility.
