Medium Voltage Market Applications
Theft Detection/Anomalous Usage
Identify, reduce and eliminate power theft by deploying sensor technology as an energy balancing tool identifying losses, interruptions and malicious usage.
Enable remote monitoring and operation of grid infrastructure for more efficient and lower operational cost management.
Sensors can be used as part of a centralized VVO system or locally—an easily installable alternative to instrumentation transformers or line post sensors.
Fault Detection and Outage Management
Easily identify the location of a fault for quicker power restoration.
Asset monitoring for improved management and allocation of capital expenses.
Voltage and Power Measurements
Improve efficiency of the distribution grid by monitoring voltage, current, real and reactive power.
Green Energy/Renewables Integration
Distributed generation interconnection permitting and ongoing monitoring.
Enables remote monitoring and supervision of critical assets located at substations without need for costly renovations or service interruptions
