Field-proven at over 200 utilities, Sensus Distribution Automation provides electric utilities with advanced end-to-end solutions for remote monitoring and control of distribution systems and assets. Since acquiring Telemetric in 2009, Sensus has integrated the resources and engineering capability to bring a key solution set that electric utilities across the globe want from their Smart Grid applications, distribution automation and asset management solutions.

Our Distribution Automation solutions consist of three main elements: intelligent field devices, AutomationControlTM software, and network options, including the Sensus FlexNet™ communication network and commercial cellular networks. Distribution automation applications can report over the very same AMI network as other metering and HAN applications, allowing utilities to have a single technology solution that addresses all applications - an industry first. Devices with the FlexNet SmartPoint ™ or cellular radios communicate with a complete line of intelligent communication applications, including reclosers, capacitor controls, switch controls, faulted circuit indicators, voltage regulators, and breakers. Utilizing the capabilities of AutomationControl, every field device provides engineers, planners, and troubleshooters easy access to a large set of information. Simultaneously, only required data is delivered to SCADA or DMS systems using the SCADA-Xchange™ interface.

From substation to meter, Sensus Distribution Automation technology integrates seamlessly with existing distribution systems ensuring reliable and real-time, two-way communication. It works with legacy systems, industry standard network protocols, and both old and new technologies.
