Sensus Launches New Stratus Electric Meter Portfolio for Intelligence at the Edge
Jun 16 15
Sensus launched new stratus electric meter portfolio for intelligence at the edge. The Sensus Stratus residential meter delivers more data than any other product on the market to ensure the safe, accurate and reliable management of the electric grid. Combined with true two-way communications on the Sensus FlexNet network, utilities and municipalities can instantly configure, upgrade and customize the meter's electricity management platform. One way the meter helps utilities be more efficient is through the conservation voltage reduction (CVR) application. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 67% of energy used to create electricity is wasted by the time the consumer uses the electricity. CVR improves the efficiency of the grid by optimizing voltage on the feeder lines that run from substations to homes and businesses. Some of the meter safety features that exceed industry standards include a redesigned power supply for increased over-voltage protection and better transient performance, isolated components and patented and patent-pending heat identification and protection. Specifically, the meter provides patented, local intelligence to autonomously and remotely open the disconnect switch so the meter can safely shut off if an issue is detected. The new Stratus meter is available in form 2S Remote Disconnect and supports multiple applications including outage management, opt-in, opt-out and conservation voltage reduction. The Sensus FlexNet system is a long-range radio network that provides a scalable and reliable communications infrastructure with dedicated channels that can be prioritized for outage and restoration data to increase reliability. The range of the point-to-multi-point network supports multiple applications that increase operational efficiency and customer engagement with fewer of access points required to capture and transmit data.
Eugene Water & Electric Board to Deploy Sensus Technologies
May 12 15
Eugene Water & Electric Board will deploy Sensus technologies for its more than 154,000 water and electric customers. The solution, which includes the Sensus FlexNet communication network and Software as a Service empowers EWEB to improve customer service through both leak detection and outage management. A longtime Sensus customer, EWEB will be able to better leverage customer data to monitor usage and notify customers at the onset of a water leak, saving water and money. In addition to leak detection, the outage management system will immediately alert the utility to any system-wide issue so electricity can be restored faster. The utility also will be able to offer future enhancements, such as automated start and stop of service, the ability of customers to monitor their own daily consumption and potential pricing options. The Sensus FlexNet system seamlessly integrates with EWEB's current systems and easily adapts as new demands arise. By partnering with Sensus and deploying the FlexNet system and services, EWEB is making a big impact in its community and its residents lives. Sensus technologies will also help EWEB enhance its operational system efficiency and conserve resources. Because the system proactively alerts the utility of outages, it can reduce the number of customer calls and dispatch personnel required to address the situation, freeing EWEB employees to focus on the most important task getting power back to customers.
United Water Selects Sensus Technology for Services-Based Smart Water Network Solution
Feb 18 15
Sensus is deploying and managing a smart communication network for United Water. The solution, which includes the Sensus FlexNet™ system, 325,000 smart endpoints and Software as a Service (SaaS), will help the utility provide sustainable water solutions for its New York and New Jersey customers. United Water selected the Sensus FlexNet system to more effectively track water use through on demand meter reads, leak identification and water theft detection, three common causes of non-revenue water. The Sensus FlexNet system is a long-range radio network that serves as a dedicated and secure two-way communications highway and requires less infrastructure than competing solutions. The network is a primary reason for United Water’s selection, as is Sensus’ superior managed service offerings.
