Raleigh, N.C.-based Sensus, a provider of advanced metering infrastructure and metering-system solutions to utilities worldwide, has partnered with ABB, a power and automation technology group. The companies will demonstrate system interface of ABB's latest network manager distribution management system (DMS) and COM600 distribution substation controller, with Sensus' FlexNet and iCon A meter, for advanced smart-grid applications.

This collaboration is part of ongoing ABB and Sensus efforts to develop smart solutions that address the needs of utilities in today's constantly changing business environment. Smart-grid data management enables utilities to manage electrical distribution systems more reliably and efficiently by accessing distribution system data that enhances both the use of system automation and control room operator decision making.

"Sensus is committed to partnering with leading distribution automation system providers to develop innovative, standards-based smart-grid solutions," says Bill Yeates, executive vice president of conservation solutions at Sensus. "The successful demonstration of Sensus' FlexNet system and its ability to communicate with and deliver meaningful smart metering data to ABB's COM600 station controller and its network manager DMS system is one more step towards the realization of the smart grid."

The interface was first showcased in April at a special Federal Energy Regulatory Commission technology day in Washington, D.C.
