GridKey is a substation monitoring system that can be fitted to the feeders of a substation without interrupting supply to customers. It provides continuous remote monitoring of the substations as well as timely warnings, status and loading information.
As a result Electrical Utilities/Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) experience reduced network maintenance costs and significantly increased knowledge of the state of their LV/MV grid.
Additional sensors, such as intruder alarms, temperature and water level can be integrated to provide a complete MV/LV substation monitoring system.
QUICK & EASY TO INSTALL
Installation is not position sensitive and can be retrofited without disrupting supply.
REDUCES CAPITAL & OPERATIONAL COST
Real time identification of faults reduces costs improves customer service
Requires no maintenance or callibration

WHY CHOOSE GRIDKEY?
GridKey is a purpose-designed, live-retrofit, compact, continuous monitoring solution suitable for substations. GridKey provides EUs/DNOs with information to drive LV and MV network planning and financial decisions.
The system consists of a number of current sensors and a Metrology and Communications Unit with data visualised for the user with a simple browser based customer web portal. An integrated GSM/GPRS radio communicates data to a web site or any existing communications and data management system via a standard interface. The information from this enables managers to make informed decisions about the network, planning maintenance, predicting and preventing failures and deferring capital costs.
