We have a long way to go before crystallized dilithium single-handedly powers our Star Trek enterprise. But this isn’t stopping power generators and utilities from stepping into the future. Day-by-day, utilities are embracing futuristic technology to harness smart grid data, improve asset management, and minimize time spent on repairing outages. Here’s our pick of the top 4 technologies utilities want and need to improve business today and tomorrow.
Nice work by Andrew Krekow in representing Second Sight in an expert panel discussion at the SCADA Tech Summit. For those that don’t know, it stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. Second Sight, Freewave, and 4RF discussing a host of topics around deploying the most reliable and secure wireless SCADA networks.
While many teenagers were taking the summer off to recover from an intense school year; 40 young men and women took the opportunity to dedicate their summers to training to be some of our nations next generation of superior engineers!
Second Sight’s recent GE MDS customer event at Ameren’s headquarters in downtown St. Louis was a big success. Our team put on a first-class technical training session for over 55 attendees, representing 10 different utilities and engineering firms, many of whom traveled from several hours away to take part in the full-day training session.

When designing Industrial Control or SCADA projects, engineering firms will undoubtedly encounter data transport challenges in their planning. What are the best technologies, protocols and capabilities out there to give my clients what they need?
Second Sight Systems, a leading provider of utility metering services for electric, gas, and water utilities, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a significant metering contract with Landis+Gyr. This contract is a multi-year meter reading and maintenance project supporting the global market leader in grid solutions.
Are Utilities ready? The Atlantic’s hurricane season began June 1 and forecasters say this year will be the worst in 10 years. Anywhere between five to nine hurricanes, two to four major hurricanes, and 11 to 17 named storms are expected to strike now through November 30. For utilities along the coast, this means working overtime to harden their networks and restore outages after blackouts. But just how ready are utilities for this above normal storm season? Very ready, it seems so far. In fact, what some of these utilities are doing is simply above and beyond.
Second Sight Systems (SSS) is proud to announce that we have officially joined the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) as a Gold Level Associate Member. This means we’ll be able to better connect with you and meet the needs of co-op members undergoing rapid change.
This week, SSS was in San Antonio at the American Public Power Association’s Engineering & Operations Vendor Expo. Over the 3-day event, we dove into sessions on communication and control, environment, generation and fuels, safety, transmission and distribution, system planning, and supply management. The sessions on Distribution Automation (DA) and IoT network management were particularly exciting.
Electrical and telecom engineers are incredibly vital to managing and protecting our new smart grid. While the grid guys maintain power and transmission substations – in addition to the physical layers of the network – telecom guys install communication connections and ensure end-to-end reliability of data transfer and related layers.
