IUS Technologies Introduces High Efficiency, Low Cost Sensors to the U.S. Utility Market
ALPHARETTA, Ga. --(Business Wire)--
Newly launched, Alpharetta-based IUS
Technologies, a subsidiary of the $1B Vitzro
Group out of Seoul, Korea, plans to revolutionize the American
utility market by delivering highly efficient and accurate distribution
automation technology. The company's VS1000 and VS3000 products
interface with leading smart grid technologies to create operational
efficiencies, optimal capacity and system reliability - all with
something that is a "foreign concept" in the United States: consistent
Smart ™ VS series of remote voltage sensors will allow power
companies to monitor voltage at the end of the line or edge of the grid,
with a 0.3 percent accuracy.
"The impeccable accuracy and flexibility of the VS series is superior to
other similarproducts on the market," says Scott Zajkowski, a member of
the North American executive team. "This enhanced level of accuracy and
reliability will enable the VS series to revolutionize the way utilities
respond to consumer outages in the future - by pinpointing problem
areas, response times will be far quicker."
Plus, because the devices allow power to stream at consistent levels,
they enable utilities to reduce peak demand. This increases capacity and
extends the life of infrastructure, optimizing asset utilization, and
reducing the need for additional infrastructure.
Both the VS1000
sensors streamline the use of utility radio bandwidth with unsolicited
response, reducing communication loads up to 95%. This programmable
notification feature automatically reports grid thresholds or dead-band
limits, saving considerable time, bandwidth and resources. The more
sophisticated VS3000 allows deeper and more complex programming options
and 0.3 percent accuracy.
IUS will manufacture both devices on-shore in the United States in its
newly purchased $2M Alpharetta manufacturing facility, planning to
create hundreds of new jobs in the next five years.
IUS Technologies will demonstrate the VS series at the 2013 DistribuTECH
conference January 29th -31st at the San Diego Convention Center, in
booth 1550. To schedule a demonstration please visit http://ius-tech.com/events.
