As the grid gets smarter, so must the sensors. GridSense provides the only true Line Health Monitor available in the market. Yes, it performs all of the traditional fault current indicator functions, but it also does so much more, putting it in a category by itself.
Intelligent Overhead Line Health Monitoring up to 138kV
There is no more flexible overhead line health monitoring solution than LineIQ. No other provides advanced fault detection out of the box, and allows you to upgrade to more intelligent monitoring capabilities via simple firmware download.
For utilities, quickly detecting faults, correcting them, and restoring power to customers is paramount. Most fault current indicators show a flag or light upon detecting a fault. Some provide fault phase and magnitude with a waveform and communications back to SCADA.
From T&D World Magazine:
At the system’s heart is an innovative, self-powered sensor easily installed on energized lines. The sensor enables continuous capture of critical performance data, including:
On your laptop, retrieve data onsite via wireless connection with the GridSense LocalLink (range up to 150ft [50m]).
The GridSense Communications Gateway supports both solicited and unsolicited reporting, and allows wireless, remote data retrieval via cellular, Ethernet, mesh radio, Wi-Fi and more. Supported messaging protocols include DNP3 and IEC 61850*.
With Grid InSite software, view your data in easy-to-analyze graphical and tabular formats that speed diagnosis and issue resolution. Within its clear, intuitive interface, clickable data lets you quickly drill down to identify problems before they damage infrastructure, force downtime, or create outages.
