Sensus delivers 4G radio module for distribution automation

Sensus has developed a new 4G/LTE radio module for distribution automation (DA) devices that use 4G AT&T GSM/GPRS cellular networks.

Sensus’ DA customers can remotely communicate with a range of endpoint devices in the field including capacitor bank controllers, reclosers and fault current indicators. These devices support network optimization applications such as Volt/VAR management, feeder communications and fault location isolation and service restoration.

The Sensus FlexNet system is a long-range radio network that provides a scalable and reliable communications infrastructure that enables smart cities. The range of the point-to-multi-point network reduces the number of access points required to capture and transmit data.

Public service providers using the FlexNet communication network can support multiple applications that increase operational efficiency and customer engagement. The large inventory of licensed spectrum ensures that customers have the bandwidth required to support future data requirements.
