German company RITTER Starkstromtechnik, member of the RITTER group buys an important share in Bausch Datacom Belgium, as expert in the communication and RTU industry, to join their activities in the smart grid market and especially for communication technology. 

Electricity Substation Monitoring

Lifetime and physical boundaries of infrastructure and short circuit events make it necessary to (tele)monitor (mid)-voltage substations. The WAN-communication of these parameters is in many cases through GPRS/3G TCP/IP IEC 60870-5-104 communication to a SCADA master set up.

The idea of a 'Smart Substation' monitoring Power Quality, directional fault passage, partial discharge of transformers information and communicating this information online (GPRS, 3G) to a SCADA backoffice is clearly gaining more and more terrain. Bausch Datacom focuses for the years to come on the development of RTU's, a mid-voltage sensor and fault indicators.More ...
