Raleigh, N.C.-based Elster Solutions has announced the introduction of Callisto, a new grid performance system that the company says transforms how utilities optimize their advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems.

According to Elster, Callisto was designed to help utilities analyze events such as outages, transformer overloading, voltage behaviors, losses, demand response and load control. Based on a modular and expandable architecture, Callisto can enable utilities to build on a meter data collection and meter data management platform through a series of optional "Stackable Answers." The product also has a stackable plug-and-play modularity, which Elster says can help utilities reduce their risk and the total cost of ownership.

“The original driver for most AMI investments was meter-to-cash revenue recognition,” says Joe Orlando, Elster’s vice president of strategy. “Now, it is about realizing additional benefits from the investment in infrastructure and the wealth of data it creates for utilities. With a new focus above the meter,’ Callisto supports our customers’ desire to have greater transparency and access to the information their AMI infrastructure can provide.”
