Optisense Network LLC, a provider of optical sensor-based solutions for automating distribution networks, and BPL Global (BPLG), a provider of smart grid technologies, have announced a collaboration to produce a solution for distribution grid management.

According to the companies, Optisense Network provides accurate measurement of three-phase and single-phase current and voltage power metrics through its optical-based sensor solution. Optisense's real-time data is processed by BPLG's Connected Energy Grid Management software, providing the operational insight needed by distribution grid operators.

“A smarter grid begins with smarter lines. Accurate measurement of electrical signals is essential for improving system reliability, efficiency, and pinpointing energy savings opportunities,” says Stephen Prince, CEO of Optisense Network. “The combination of Optisense’s reliability and accuracy with BPLG’s grid management solution gives system engineers actionable data they can use to identify and solve problems in real time.”
