Enhance utility grid visibility with submersible optical sensor platform

Read how an electric utility deployed optical sensors to yield feeder reliability data to use toward avoiding failures that can affect customer service (page 19).

Quickly and easily make your substations SCADA-ready

Bringing unmonitored substations online with metering and communications has great operational benefit for utilities. The GridAdvisor Insight optical sensor system provides an easily installed, yet highly accurate monitoring system with built-in communications capability for retrofits or new construction.

Gain insight into underground networks

Underground networks are notoriously difficult and time-consuming to troubleshoot and fix. The GridAdvisor Insight optical sensor platform has solutions to provide highly accurate measurements to identify problems that arise and potentially even predict cable failures before they happen.
