GridSense, a company that develops monitoring solutions for the electric power industry, has signed a contract with a major California utility for the supply of 200 TransformerIQ advanced monitoring units.

The company says the devices will be used to monitor and secure data from overhead and underground transformers dispersed throughout the utility's residential distribution grid. This new order complements a preceding contract for 500 units.

"I expect that once these orders are fulfilled, the technology deployed and the benefits proven, we will have further positive interaction with this utility on their fleet of over 100,000 transformers," says Lindon Shiao, CEO of GridSense.
