Intelligent Distribution Grid Monitor Goes Subterranean

Sentient Energy’s Sentient UM3+ emerges as the first intelligent distribution grid monitor designed for underground deployment. The modular offering extends to underground circuits the capabilities of Sentient’s Ample Software, and MM3 and ZM1 overhead line monitors to detect, capture, analyze and communicate faults and non-fault disturbances over both AMI/DA mesh and cellular networks.


The UM3+ line monitor is equipped with sensing and measurement capabilities including line and fault current measurement. It is extensible to electric field monitoring, water level, as well as NOX and CH4 detection in the underground vault. The UM3+ uses GPS for location and precise time stamping of all measurements.  For more engaging information, a UM3+ datasheet is available. You can also visit Sentient Energy.
