Optisense Network using Texas Instruments technology for metering solutions

Dallas, August 19, 2009 — Optisense Network, a smart grid and electricity line monitoring firm, selected Texas Instruments’ embedded processing and analog technology for its primary measuring units (PMU).

TI’s TMS320C2000 microcontroller and analog technology enables a complete monitoring solution that gives utilities real-time visibility of primary voltage lines.

The PMU can be configured for primary metering, distribution automation, outage restoration, energy efficiency and power quality. The combination of Optisense’s optical sensors and PMUs provides utilities with greater grid security and reliability as well as increased visibility for faster power outage response.

TI’s comprehensive utility metering portfolio includes devices targeted at electricity, water and gas metering, as well as power line communications (PLC) and radio frequency (RF) interfaces for advanced meter infrastructure (AMI) that allow customers to design smart grid solutions.
