Amperion Inc. and Exacter, Inc. have formed a partnership to provide electric utilities with products and services that improve grid reliability and enable Smart Grid applications. Thirty percent of the $150 billion that is lost annually to outages and poor power quality result from equipment failures. Amperion and Exacter are providing practical solutions that reduce SAIFI and maintain high reliability. The two companies will offer Exacter’s grid-reliability detection services in combination with Amperion’s smart grid communications network and monitoring services.
John Lauletta, Exacter CEO, believes the joint technology solution represents a true breakthrough for improving distribution reliability and states, “Amperion’s ability to monitor the distribution system and create problem alerts coupled with Exacter’s ability to pinpoint exactly where the problem is provide utilities with a reliability tool they have never had before — a complete, real-time line quality assurance system.”
Nachum Sadan, Amperion CEO, adds, “The combination of Amperion’s highly reliable communications network with Exacter’s unique RFI-detection technology provides a continuous monitoring capability for early detection of failures.”
