GridSense launches transmission and distribution line monitoring system

Sacramento, Calif., February 1, 2011 — GridSense, a unit of Acorn Energy, Inc., announced the commercial launch of its latest transmission and distribution line monitoring system, the LineIQ.

"The LineIQ assists utilities in improving their reliability even in the face of aging infrastructures," said Lindon Shiao, CEO of GridSense. "Today, when a fault is detected on the grid, a utility will typically be forced to shut down large surrounding areas to prevent its spreading. LineIQ is a sophisticated tool with more advanced and efficient real-time reporting capabilities that enable utilities to pinpoint line faults, and to restore service to all but the affected area."

With the introduction of new functionality like accurate voltage measurement, and additional monitoring parameter capabilities, the LineIQ addresses essential smart grid and distribution automation applications such as outage management, line balancing and capacity optimization.

GridSense will exhibit the LineIQ system at the DistribuTECH conference in San Diego (Booth No. 2627) from February 1-3, 2011.
