Sensus Smart Electricity Meter

Back to Case Studies
Sensus, a leading US water meter manufacturer, were approached by Sentec with a prototype solid state electricity meter. Sensus chose Sentec's technology to enter a new market for them, rather than acquiring an existing metering company. From our fundamental physics approach we used our techology development to create a solid state electricity metering platform that enabled an industry leading 0.2% accuracy level and helped Sensus gain substantial market share starting from scratch. Together, Sentec and Sensus took this technology platform from prototype through to full scale production (millions per year), in less than 24 months.

Sensus smart electricity meters are one of the prime examples of Sentec’s integrated product development approach, drawing on the combined skills of our physics, electronics, firmware, manufacturing and mechanical product design teams to enable a leading class product.

Subsequent iterations integrated a remote disconnect switch and numerous variants for differing current ratings and connections. Sensus then acquired Sentec in 2015, and subsequently Sensus were acquired by Xylem in 2016.
