February 3, 2015 -- Landis+Gyr, a leader in energy management solutions, announced the commercial availability of the S610 Line Sensor for the GridstreamR RF network, a smart grid platform for advanced metering and grid management applications developed and manufactured by Sentient Energy, Inc. The S610 Line Sensor is an intelligent fault circuit indicator that further extends the distribution monitoring capabilities of the Gridstream network. It delivers fault location and accurate load logging from any point on the distribution network, improving visibility of distribution grid performance. Additionally, the device is a power harvesting sensor that generates necessary power from the current flowing in the distribution line making installation simpler and less expensive than traditional devices.
"The S610 was designed to be easy to deploy and maintain, while providing fault analysis at the point of installation," said Kent Hedrick, Director of Grid Management Solutions at Landis+Gyr. "The intelligent radio in the device reports fault-specific alerts that enable a utility to pinpoint location and analyze cause resulting in faster outage restoration. This makes the sensor a useful addition to the other grid management tools supported by Gridstream."
The S610 Line Sensor is available for order from Landis+Gyr sales representatives and distributors.
