IUS Technologies Announces Groundbreaking Test Results with Major U.S. Utility AEP

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

$1B Vitzro Group subsidiary IUS Technologies is excited to announce the initial U.S. test results of its smart series sensors. Late in 2011 IUS combined forces with American Electric Power (AEP) to assess the accuracy of its end-of-line smart sensors - the VS1000 and VS3000. AEP serves an 11-state area and over five million customers, providing IUS with a wide market sample.

The distribution automation technology of these sensors has been vital in creating a stable South Korean electric system that has tremendous resilience, up time, and smart rerouting. IUS Technologies says the result of their testing with AEP means that this technology onshores in North America extremely well, and can indeed be a major benefit to large US utilities, municipalities and co-ops. The company plans to begin manufacturing immediately in their Alpharetta, Georgia, location.

IUS executive Scott Zajowski says, "We are excited with the positive test outcomes, demonstrating that our devices have exceeded industry expectations. They are market-ready and clearly at the forefront of smart grid technology." Initial testing confirms the VS3000 is efficient to a level of 0.3 percent accuracy, outperforming similar devices on the market and at a lower cost per unit for acquisition.


IUS Technologies focuses on using reliable distribution automation and it is poised to bridge the gap that U.S. utilities face in bringing the grid to an effective and reliable stature. With a 50-year plus history of innovations in South Korea, which is known to have one of the most reliable grids worldwide despite the threat of tsunamis and a mountainous terrain, IUS is advancing with specialized products like its VS series sensors. The sensors allow utilities to monitor and drop voltage levels across the grid, significantly increasing capacity, and allowing electric utilities to sell off the excess power to other utilities, municipalities or co-ops at the market rate. The net effect is creating a significant revenue stream for utilities and allowing capacity to meet the rising demand without costly infrastructure investments. It makes a win-win situation for both utilities and consumers.

IUS Technologies will demonstrate the VS series at the 2013 DistribuTECH conference Jan. 29-31 at the San Diego Convention Center, in booth 1550. To schedule a demonstration please visit http://ius-tech.com/events.
