Digitization of all data at the source reduces the risk of electrocution dramatically. The elimination of open current circuits minimizes exposure to high voltage electricity and reduces the risk of damaging equipment.
Replacing copper cables with digital communication capability shortens installation and retrofit times and enables complete system supervision, reducing maintenance requirements.
Complete supervision of all substation automation components facilitates faster fault detection and elimination, and further minimizes the need for periodic maintenance, lowering costs as well as reducing outage times.
