OptiSense Network LLC™, a smart grid company that designs, produces and delivers technologies for medium voltage distribution systems worldwide, announced today that they will showcase their next generation medium voltage optical sensor solutions at DistribuTECH 2014, January 28-30 in San Antonio, Texas.

“We are excited to be previewing our enhanced medium voltage sensor solutions at DistribuTECH,” says Stephen Prince, CEO of OptiSense Network. “All of our 15kV, 25kV, 35kV and 46kV optical sensors offer improved environmental durability, detachable fiber optic cables for ease of use in varying conditions and improved distribution line installation.”

As the premier distribution automation event, DistribuTECH brings together nearly 10,000 utility executives, distribution engineers, product manufacturers and industry experts from more than 50 countries.

OptiSense Network will be demonstrating their new optical sensor solutions in Booth 3653 along with partners IMS Power Quality and Silver Spring Networks.

OptiSense’s sensor solutions enable centralized (SCADA, DMS) and local control (capacitor bank controllers, relays, switches and regulators) for:

  •     Fault Detection and Restoration
  •     Volt/VAR Control
  •     Power Factor Correction
  •     Dynamic Load Balancing
  •     Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR)
  •     Condition-Based / Predictive Maintenance

“OptiSense had a great 2013,” notes Prince. “Not only did OptiSense Network win a premier technology industry award for innovation, revenue growth, and community support, but our global client base increased significantly. We’re starting 2014 strongly with a line of optical sensors that improve distribution line reliability, increase efficiency and extend the life of utility capital assets by providing intelligence beyond the substation.”

DistribuTECH attendees are invited to come by Booth 3653 to see demonstrations of OptiSense solutions, to understand OptiSense’s participation in the Silver Spring Networks Partner Program, and discuss IMS Power Quality’s distribution of OptiSense Network’s optical sensor solutions in Latin America.
