Advanced Monitoring Platform

Sentient Energy’s Advanced Monitoring Platform

is a modular, intelligent monitoring system for the

Smart Grid, consisting of AMP™ line monitors and
the AMPLE™ suite of monitoring applications and
analytics. The MM2 line monitor unit is at the heart
of the system, deployed on three phase and single
phase lines across the distribution grid.

Multiple measurements Equipped with

high resolution current, temperature, and
waveform measuring capabilities, MM2
continuously monitors detailed line operating
conditions and events, such as real-time
current and ampacity, faults, momentaries, With excellent line of sight visibility in all
