Sensus to buy internet of things firm Sentec

Sensus Logo

Sensus reached an agreement to acquire Sentec, an award-winning research organization that develops electronics and sensor technologies for utilities, meter and appliance manufacturers, and infrastructure providers.

When complete, the acquisition will expand Sensus’ global engineering resources in emerging technologies, including those that support the Internet of Things.

Sentec has expertise in mechanical engineering, embedded firmware development and other skill sets that complement Sensus. Sentec is also working on cost-effective metrology for different IoT sensors such as window air conditioning units that provide data to enable demand response and load control initiatives and low-cost sensors for energy-efficient washing machines that capture information on water and energy use.

Sentec is located in Cambridge, England, in the heart of the technology center known locally as Silicon Fen—a nod to Silicon Valley in California and the marshlands that surround Cambridge’s parks and universities.
