Elster Solutions introduces new AMI optimization system

Elster Solutions introduces a new grid performance system called Callisto. The system will help utilities optimize their advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, which play a key role in smart grid deployments.

Callisto is being demonstrated at the 2013 DistribuTECH Conference & Exhibition in San Diego. Visitors can learn more about the Callisto, Elster’s Grid Performance System and Elster’s answers for utilities at booth No. 1500.

Callisto, Elster’s latest AMI product, supports actionable intelligence without the expense buying and integrating specialized applications.

Elster’s Callisto was designed to help utilities analyze events such as outages, transformer overloading, voltage behaviors, losses, demand response, load control and much more. Based on a modular and expandable architecture, Callisto empowers utilities of any size to build on a meter data collection (MDC) and meter data management (MDM) feature-rich platform through a series of optional “Stackable Answers.”

Elster has collaborated with the application providers for additional capabilities that deliver answers to specific challenges. Companies including ABB, SAIC, Dominion Voltage and Milsoft, have joined with Elster to develop Callisto.
