Automation is provided on underground units through the Distribution automation relay and for overhead applications through the Smart Navigator.
Smart Navigator FCI
- Fault Indication and Load Monitoring
- Communication Flexibility
The Smart Navigator FCI, mounted on an overhead circuit, sends radio signals to a pole-mounted receiver. The signal then travels to a connected RTU or over a cellular or utility-specified radio network and finally into SCADA. In addition to fault indication, the smart navigator provides load data in configurable intervals.
- UG SCADA fault reporting
- RTU Interface
- Low Power Consumption
The Distribution Automation Relay is designed to provide a 100 ms pulse or latched contact output to a remote terminal unit (RTU) on a SCADA system when an underground LED type FCI is flashing. The light is transmitted from the FCI to the D/A relay assembly via a fiber optic cable ( up to 30 feet) which enables the relay for indication to the RTU. When the FCI resets the D/A relay changes status to indicate no fault. This reliable solid state compact design can be added to existing systems economically at any time.
