Facility features technology in action & simulates integrated technology solutions
Sensus is offering customers a chance to test drive products and solutions at its North Carolina Research Triangle Park demo lab. Simulating operations of Sensus’ offerings in a real-time, real-world environment, the lab brings to life the company’s integrated technology solutions. Public service providers, including utilities, can see firsthand how Sensus can help them do more with their infrastructure through the application of technology and data-driven insights that deliver efficiency and responsiveness.
“The demo lab is another example of how Sensus partners with its customers in responding to their needs—both today and in the future,” said Dave Ayers, Sensus vice president of engineering. “With its 13,000 gas, water, electric and outdoor lighting endpoints, a smart home, and working water tower and sink, the facility is a haven for demonstrating infrastructure monitoring and control.”
The lab features a fully functional Sensus FlexNet system, a long-range radio network that serves as a dedicated and secure two-way communications highway for multiple applications. Within the lab environment, customers can experience meter reading, leak detection demand response, automation control, lighting control and data analytics solutions.
“With each live or remote demonstration, customers tell us how helpful it is to have a hands-on experience with the technology and to see for themselves just how well it works,” Ayers said.
