Tollgrade predictive grid analytics


Published on

LightHouse Sensor Management System (SMS) software latest version with predictive grid analytics. The software works with Tollgrade's inductively powered medium voltage smart grid sensors that provide visibility throughout the distribution network.

The added four layers of analytical processing enables utilities to pinpoint the outage location and perform restoration faster because they know more about the fault and what equipment is required to repair it. Learn more e-mail us at, or visit us at
