And the remote connect/disconnect feature helps us save both time and energy.”

Dickson Electric deployed the 500,000th Stratus meter and continues to see new benefits from the technology.

The UL-certified Stratus meter features industry-leading sensors for hot-socket detection, a redesigned power supply for increased over-voltage protection and better transient performance than other electricity meters in the marketplace. Additionally, the meter includes patented intelligence to independently, remotely and safely shut off the meter if an issue is detected. The Stratus meter supports multiple applications including outage management, opt-in, opt-out and conservation voltage reduction (CVR).

“This is an important achievement for the Stratus meter, and one that validates the critical role it plays in our customers’ infrastructures,” said Sensus VP of Marketing Greg Myers. “The safety, accuracy and reliability of the meter are unmatched in the industry, especially when used in conjunction with the Sensus FlexNet® communication network. Dickson Electric understands this and has implemented a solution that continues to pay dividends for their customers.”
