Sensus and General Electric Energy have integrated the Sensus FlexNet smart grid communications technology with GE smart meters.
"We are delighted to add General Electric smart meters to the list of electric revenue meters already integrated with FlexNet," said Doug McCall, director of marketing at Sensus. "With today's announcement, our electric utility customers will have another technology leader they may depend on to deliver intelligent FlexNet integrated products to the industry," he added.
Under this agreement, Sensus and GE will work together to meet smart meter and network requirements driving existing and future Smart Grid implementation programs. With expected availability later in 2009, the GE meters with FlexNet integrated communications will provide a superior option for Sensus FlexNet customers familiar with the time-tested GE meters.
