Sensus metering systems acquires AMDS

Sensus Metering Systems Inc., providers of high-value metering and AMR solutions for water, gas, electricity and heat utilities, has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase the assets of Advanced Metering Data Systems, LLC.

Sensus says the acquisition is in keeping with its strategy of expanding its automatic meter reading product portfolio and addressing increasing market demands for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).

Sensus has marketed AMDS’ technology to the electricity and combined utility markets in North America for the past 18 months. The system is promoted as FlexNet® with AMDS Connect® AMI system. The AMDS fixed network RF system features full two-way communications directly with meters, and enables functions such as remote meter programming and remote disconnect/connect.

AMDS founder and CEO Britton Sanderford will take on the newly-created position of Chief Technology Officer for Sensus.
