Grid Optimization. It’s GO Time.
From keynote speeches that captivated the audience to imaginative solutions scattered across the exhibit hall, DistribuTECH didn’t disappoint. The fact that the event was held in New Orleans, a city known for its culinary delights and rich musical heritage, was merely the cherry on top.
At the Sensus booth, we were excited to showcase our newest smart meter—the Stratus IQ™. However, it wasn’t enough to bring a few meters along for show and tell. We wanted to make a splash and did so by bringing a massive, 4-foot diameter Stratus IQ model to the booth complete with an interactive touchscreen. Although, the real story is that our engineers designed a meter with the horsepower and durability to stand the test of time. Yes, the model was big; but it’s not a stretch to say that the actual Stratus IQ offers larger-than-life performance.
Below are a few highlights from the Sensus booth. Also, on the Sensus blog, we’ve published one person’s account of the show—and it was predictably irrational.
