Manage, Monitor and Control Your Grid Assets No Matter Where They Are
Intelligent devices are expanding throughout the grid infrastructure. So is the need for increased real-time monitoring and remote control. It stands to reason that your distribution systems will also become an increasingly important part of these changes. A well-designed Distribution Automation (DA) system will help you get the most value out of assets such as voltage regulators’ automated feeder switches, reclosers and capacitor banks.
Our DA solution helps you reduce costs and enhance system reliability to minimize outages. It delivers cost-effective wireless communication and control solutions for a wide range of distribution automation and power reliability applications.
The Sensus DA solution features three main elements:
Intelligent communications and automation devices
A reliable low-latency network communications backbone
Collectively, our DA elements and networks provide a powerful solution. They combine real-time monitoring and control of distribution assets, users and communications. This includes applications such as:
Recloser controller communications
Capacitor bank controllers
Automated line switches
Industrial and commercial load management
Fault circuit indicators (FCIs) and current sensor monitoring
Line voltage monitoring
Power reliability monitoring
Distribution automation applications operate on a dedicated channel over the very same network as other metering, demand response, data analytics and lighting applications. This means you can rely on a convenient, single technology solution for all your applications.
From substation to meter, our DA technology integrates seamlessly with existing distribution systems and ensures reliable and real-time, two-way communication. It works with legacy systems, industry standard network protocols and new technologies.
