Respond with Real-Time Visibility
Gain visibility across your distribution network. Predict and respond problems before they disrupt service.
Aclara’s control systems and sensor technologies give utilities the real-time visibility to monitor and manage their distribution networks, monitor key water and gas distribution points, and predict and respond to conditions before small problems become major system and service interruptions.
Prevent hazardous sewer flooding with Aclara’s Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) water height sensor. Respond to imminent problems such as clogged sewers or rising storm “surcharge” levels to head off the cost and liability of released contaminated water.
Avoid costly catastrophic pipe failures and reclaim lost water revenue with Aclara’s STAR® ZoneScan Distribution Leak Detection sensor. Remotely monitor and manage leaks to reduce service interruptions.
Gain real-time visibility across your electricity distribution network with Aclara’s Grid Monitoring Platform to actively monitor load and power quality, and rapidly respond to faults across the system – reducing outages and tackling challenging power quality and distribution issues.
Control load, curb demand and safeguard against under-voltage and under-frequency conditions utilizing the Demand Response Unit (DRU). The Aclara DRU reduces peak power costs without impacting customer service. Utilities can also automate grid reliability and efficiency using Aclara’s Distribution Switching Transponder (DST) to remotely manage capacitors and other relay-switched distribution automation devices.
