Smart grid technology provider GridSense, an Acorn Energy company, has announced that a Central American utility recently placed an order for 150 TransformerIQ monitoring units and requisite ancillary support hardware.

According to Acorn, the utility previously ordered TransformerIQ units and tested their capability. This new order encompasses a variety of communications options that will be tested as part of the second stage of preparation for a potentially larger project.

"This project highlights the growing need in Latin and South America for power companies to better manage theft on the network," says Francis Fisher, sales director at GridSense. "The TransformerIQ allows distribution companies the opportunity to monitor and identify areas on the network that see the largest number of losses and verify meter readings."
