All Products

GridKey is a family of substation monitoring systems that can be fitted to the feeders of a low voltage or medium voltage substation, typically without interrupting supply to customers. It provides continuous remote monitoring of substations, as well as timely warnings, status and loading information. As a result, electrical utilities/distribution network operators experience reduced network maintenance costs and better understand the state of their LV and MV grids.

GridKey Product Overview

Data Centre

Collecting raw data and analysing it to create ‘actionable information’ is key to extracting value from data collected by the GridKey systems. An analysis of available systems against our requirements resulted in the decision to develop a bespoke system, enabling us to incorporate useful features and manage cyber security aspects.

Data Centre

Metrology and Communications Unit (MCU)

GridKey produces three MCU systems – MCU520 (low voltage), MCU520 (medium voltage) and MCU318. Each communicates directly with the cloud-based GridKey Data Centre, which stores and analyses data to provide actionable information.

MCU318

Our cost effective system continuously and accurately measures and calculates a wide range of grid condition data.

MCU520 Low Voltage

The MCU continuously and accurately measures and calculates a wide range of grid condition data.

MCU520 Medium Voltage

The medium/high voltage monitoring system (scaled appropriately for that network), continuously and accurately measures and calculates a wide range of grid condition data up to 33kV.

Sensors

SlimSensor

Using the experience installing over 1000 LV monitoring systems using a variety of sensors types, the GridKey team specified a sensor specifically for retrofit installations.

GridHound GH600 Sensor

The GridHound sensors were designed by the GridKey team specifically for retrofit to existing LV cabinets and they remain our most accurate sensors.

FlexiSensor

When required to fit around larger conductors, multiple conductors or around fuse handles, a longer sensor can be supplied.

CT Sensors

These sensors are supplied with the MCU520MV and measure the current output of 400:5 ratio CT’s fitted to MV cables.
