Landis+Gyr releases intelligent fault circuit indicator

Sponsored by

Landis+Gyr announced the commercial availability of the S610 Line Sensor for the Gridstream RF network, a smart grid platform for advanced metering and grid management applications.

The S610 Line Sensor is an intelligent fault circuit indicator that further extends the distribution monitoring capabilities of the Gridstream network. It delivers fault location and accurate load logging from any point on the distribution network, improving visibility of distribution grid performance.

Additionally, the device is a power harvesting sensor that generates necessary power from the current flowing in the distribution line making installation simpler and less expensive than traditional devices

In addition to sensing current, conductor temperature and voltage characteristics, the S610 also feature GPS location identification and a precision clock. Since it attaches directly to the distribution line and can be installed with a hot stick, the sensor requires no secondary attachment or power source. A super capacitor in the sensor allows operation during periods of very low current flow in the line and can quickly recharge when current increases.

Landis+Gyr partnered with Sentient Energy to develop the product for the Gridstream network. The S610 Line Sensor is available for order from Landis+Gyr sales representatives and distributors.
