Smart Navigator 2.0
The Smart Navigator 2.0 continuously monitors the over-head line and provides measured values and fault information to the control room. This enables engineers (or automated alorithms) to initiate immediate switching and circuit restoration decisions.
The indicator is a self-powered sensor which harvests its power supply from the overhead line. Power is stored in a rechargeable lithium cell for period with low or no load current. Each unit is simply and securely clipped onto a phase conductor of the overhead line. A set of three units at each monitored location consists of one master and two satellite units. The master communicates via cellular networks directly to SCADA without the need for a pole-mounted box.
iHost manages data and communication between smart FCIs and SCADA.
iHost provides a single platform for utilities to manage the increasing number of low cost, communicating, “smart field devices” installed throughout the power network.
Installing iHost enables the utility to make best use of these new devices whilst at the same time extending the information horizon of existing SCADA and other IT systems.
