Monitoring, control, measurement and protection

Monitoring, control and measurement solutions are the foundation for automating your network. They enable you to see what happens inside your network, ensuring reliable and uninterrupted operation anywhere and anytime.

Adding the protection applications will make sure the power flow is only interrupted when absolutely required, assuring highest reliability and quality of service for your own customers.

With the increasing amount of renewable energy resources in the grid, the need for accurate selectivity was never higher. This makes our distribution automation protection system the perfect fit for renewable integration applications.

Profit from unseen reliability, selectivity and simplicity for your grid
