Omron unveils solution for power theft

Omron, the world leader in sensing and control technologies, announced the launch of its Total Tamper Detection Solution – world’s first of its kind – to address the national level concerns of power ‘theft’ in the electricity sector. Positioned as a revolutionary offering for Smart Energy Management, the solution has been unveiled by the company at the India Smart Grid Week -2016.

The solution comprises a technologically advanced security sensor, made by Omron, positioned in a smart meter. Conceptualised in association with the utility, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL), the endeavour is visualised as a milestone in enabling the Smart Grid initiative of the Government of India and is also expected to play a key role in shaping the macro initiatives of national importance such as the need to channelise and curb the losses caused by power theft.

Explaining the role of Total Tamper Detection solution in managing power theft, Vinod Raphael, Country Business Head, Omron Electronic and Mechanical Components Business Division in India said, “Though it is difficult to reckon the proportion of power theft in the T&D losses, it is certainly one of the major concerns for the utilities. Omron’s security sensor for the smart meters is multi-functional, imparting a unique artificial intelligence to the meter by detecting all kinds of tampering.”
