Sentec, the smart grid and smart metering specialist, has announced that it has passed a significant landmark with the installation of the 10 millionth meter based on its technology.
Sentec passes 10 million meter landmark
Sentec technology has been at the heart of advanced smart meters produced for the electricity and water markets by leading supplier of metering solutions Sensus. Sentec will celebrate this milestone at Metering Europe, the leading event for smart utility professionals.
Sentec’s measurement technologies and designs have been integrated into the complete range of residential iCon electricity meters, deployed in smart grid rollouts across the USA and over the past 2 years, in a groundbreaking new water management system, the iPERL. Both developments have involved Sentec and Sensus working closely together to create market leading products.
Since the first trials in 2002 iCon and iPERL meters have been deployed by utilities across North America, and to date have logged over 171 billion service hours. Both meters offer unprecedented degrees of accuracy – the iPERL capturing revenue at flow rates which were previously too low to measure.
Mark England, CEO, Sentec, commented: “With 10 million meters in the field, we have unique experience of the real issues involved in high volume smart metering development. Our relationship with Sensus has delivered innovative results, and we are keen to develop other successful partnerships moving forward.”
