IUS Technologies Introduces High Efficiency, Low Cost Sensors to the U.S. Utility Market

ALPHARETTA, Ga. --(Business Wire)--

Newly launched, Alpharetta-based IUS Technologies, a subsidiary of the $1B Vitzro Group out of Seoul, Korea, plans to revolutionize the American utility market by delivering highly efficient and accurate distribution automation technology. The company's VS1000 and VS3000 products interface with leading smart grid technologies to create operational efficiencies, optimal capacity and system reliability - all with something that is a "foreign concept" in the United States: consistent power quality.

The Born Smart ™ VS series of remote voltage sensors will allow power companies to monitor voltage at the end of the line or edge of the grid, with a 0.3 percent accuracy.

"The impeccable accuracy and flexibility of the VS series is superior to other similarproducts on the market," says Scott Zajkowski, a member of the North American executive team. "This enhanced level of accuracy and reliability will enable the VS series to revolutionize the way utilities respond to consumer outages in the future - by pinpointing problem areas, response times will be far quicker."

Plus, because the devices allow power to stream at consistent levels, they enable utilities to reduce peak demand. This increases capacity and extends the life of infrastructure, optimizing asset utilization, and reducing the need for additional infrastructure.

Both the VS1000 and VS3000 sensors streamline the use of utility radio bandwidth with unsolicited response, reducing communication loads up to 95%. This programmable notification feature automatically reports grid thresholds or dead-band limits, saving considerable time, bandwidth and resources. The more sophisticated VS3000 allows deeper and more complex programming options and 0.3 percent accuracy.

IUS will manufacture both devices on-shore in the United States in its newly purchased $2M Alpharetta manufacturing facility, planning to create hundreds of new jobs in the next five years.

IUS Technologies will demonstrate the VS series at the 2013 DistribuTECH conference January 29th -31st at the San Diego Convention Center, in booth 1550. To schedule a demonstration please visit
