Landis+Gyr is purchasing PowerSense, a Danish smart grid sensor and monitoring company, in order to enhance its offerings for the management of medium- and low-voltage distribution grids.

PowerSense's product line digitizes existing power distribution infrastructure by retrofitting sensors onto power cables, transformers and switchgear. The company has sold and delivered products and services to 35 utilities throughout the world.

"PowerSense solutions have been tested and successfully proven in a major rollout in Australia at Ausgrid and in a number of pilot projects internationally," explains Andreas Umbach, CEO of Landis+Gyr. "Their patented optical sensor technologies, as well as smart grid monitoring and controller products, perfectly complement Landis+Gyr's portfolio."
