GridSense™, An Acorn Energy Company, And Landis+Gyr Announce Availability Of Gridstream® Enabled GridSense™ Monitors

SACRAMENTO, Calif. and ATLANTA, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GridSense , an Acorn Energy (NASDAQ: ACFN) company that develops and markets advanced monitoring solutions for the electric power industry, and Landis+Gyr, the leading global provider of integrated energy management solutions, are pleased to announce the availability of GridSense LineIQ™ and TransformerIQ™ monitors equipped with Gridstream platform communication.

The Gridstream solution offers a two-way network platform that forms the backbone for grid management solutions ranging from advanced meters to intelligent switches, reclosers, capacitor banks and RTUs.  By incorporating the Gridstream network communication into GridSense monitors such as the TransformerIQ and LineIQ solutions, utilities are able to expand their distribution automation capabilities to full-featured overhead line and transformer monitoring within a trusted, proven and widely deployed intelligent communications platform. The GridSense LineIQ solution provides intelligent overhead line monitoring, while TransformerIQ monitors all failure modes in transformers from the poletop to the substation.

Utilities across the country are striving to maintain reliable, high-quality power distribution. Advanced monitoring solutions from Landis+Gyr and GridSense will simplify their task.  For instance, American Electric Power (AEP) recently chose this solution to reliably monitor end-of-line voltage in their Public Service Company of Oklahoma Project. The GridSense TransformerIQ equipped with the Landis+Gyr  Gridstream radio provides a cost-effective, easily deployable monitoring solution.

"GridSense is extremely pleased to integrate the Gridstream communication platform into our monitoring solutions," says GridSense CEO Lindon Shiao. "Many utilities are actively using their Gridstream platform for distribution automation and smart meter rollouts today. These utilities can now accomplish network-wide, full-featured line and transformer monitoring more cost-effectively and with less risk simply by leveraging their existing communications framework. The entire team at GridSense looks forward to serving this market."

Landis+Gyr Director of Grid Management Solutions, Kent Hedrick, acknowledged, "Utilities are looking for ways to realize additional benefit from systems they already have in place.  Using the Gridstream platform to bring intelligent two-way communication to the distribution grid monitoring network, and pushing the intelligence and decision making closer to the consumer is a win-win."
