Sensus Stratus IQ™ Electricity Meter

Overview Solutions Documentation & Tools Technology

Take your grid to next-level smart. Discover the Stratus IQ.

Electric meters measure usage. That’s their job. But that’s so…one-dimensional.

The Stratus IQ meter takes measurement to a whole new level by monitoring and providing feedback through enhanced data. This meter was designed to provide utilities with the data visibility and control needed to quickly adapt to a rapidly evolving smart grid.

Building upon the best-in-class Stratus®metering platform, the Stratus IQ combines grid edge intelligence with precise energy measurement into one powerful package. This meter provides two-way counting and options for high or low granularity of reads. Plus, with high-precision voltage monitoring and outage alarms, the Stratus IQ has the intelligence to deliver smart better.

Not only does this next-gen meter give utilities commercial and industrial power in a residential meter, it’s also obsessively designed and tested to be indestructible. With more data captured than any other meter, the Stratus IQ is fanatical about collecting—and protecting—information.

Oh, yeah, and you’ll be able to create a bill.
