Tollgrade Communications Inc., a service provider for electric utilities, and ELO Sistemas Eletronicos, a Latin American meter manufacturer, have signed an agreement under which ELO will offer and sell Tollgrade's LightHouse distribution monitoring platform throughout Brazil and other countries in Latin America.

According to the companies, the LightHouse solution, which is deployed outside substations and along feeders on a distribution network, augments ELO's existing product portfolio to provide an end-to-end solution that pinpoints faults and outages that extend from the meter to the substation.

"This solution will allow us to improve reliability beyond the meter by monitoring the grid health conditions of the millions of miles of largely unmonitored feeder networks that connect cities and stretch out into rural areas of Brazil and Latin America," says Marcos Rizzo, vice president of business development at ELO.
