Sensus and GE's Digital Energy business collaborated to integrate Sensus FlexNet communication technology into GE's existing I-210+c electric meter. Built on GE's meter platform and inclusive of a Sensus FlexNet radio module, the GE I-210+c FlexNet-enabled meter will be available with and without remote disconnect. The new meter is also expected to meet Underwriters Laboratory (UL) 2735 at the time of initial product availability and Measurement Canada certification within three months of availability.
LaGrange County REMC began deploying a Sensus FlexNet utility network and iCon A electric meters for its more than 7,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers across parts of four counties in northern Indiana. The utility recently concluded construction and installation of its five base stations. LaGrange made a decision to forego a pilot program and move straight into implementation, which is expected to be fully complete within the next five to six years as legacy meters are replaced with digital meters from Sensus.
