"GridSense products are adaptive and easily retrofit to legacy assets. This niche is very familiar to us and fits with our mission. In addition to expanding our monitoring offering within our core utility substation markets, the product range gives us access downstream toward the end customer where there is excellent growth potential over the next several years."
