Optisense Selects TI's Processing and Analog Tech

Optisense Network has selected Texas Instruments' embedded processing and analog technology as the preferred solution for its primary measuring units (PMU), which provide electricity line monitoring for utility companies.. TI's microcontroller and high-performance analog technology enables 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. Additionally, utilities are able to realize optimized power flows that increase capacity and energy-efficiency, helping recover 25 percent of total load loss.
