The 3M Electrical Markets Division has introduced a sensing solution that helps power utilities monitor their underground distribution systems.

According to 3M, its Sensored Termination QX-Series supports applications that include volt/VAR optimization, fault detection, isolation and restoration, asset management, and load balancing.

The company says the sensored termination is designed to help provide accurate voltage and current data through simple retrofits of existing power equipment, such as switchgear and transformers. 3M adds that the termination provides data that can enable real-time monitoring and control and automation capabilities throughout the underground medium-voltage distribution network.

The sensored termination is designed for indoor applications that utilize a livefront form factor, 3M notes.
