SYNC Asset Monitoring
Distribution Automation is one of the most critical aspects of the Smart Grid, and arguably the area which can bring in the most profound benefits to the distribution utility. Real-time remote monitoring of the distribution assets like auto-reclosers, sectionalizers, RMUs, FPIs, capacitor banks and distribution transformers would result in huge incremental savings through enhanced system availability, loss accounting, manpower savings and quality of service. Kalkitech's products for Distribution Automation are specificially designed taking into account these distribution assets, thus ensuring optimum performance rates for each of the applications. All the Remote Monitoring products comes with enhanced ruggedness for Field / Substation environments, and also has a large protocol base with the help of the widely used SYNC protocol conversion engine. Kalkitech also provides customization services on the products, as well as consultancy on product / application design and OEM solutions.
Kalkitech's products for Remote Monitoring are available under two product series: SYNC 1000 and SYNC 2100. While the SYNC 1000 is more suited for DA applications like FPI and Autorecloser monitoring, the SYNC 2100 is used where the distribution assets are larger like RMUs, Capacitor Banks, Feeder Line Monitoring. Thus, SYNC 2100 has options for modularity and expandability of IOs, while the SYNC 1000 series has IP ruggedness to withstand outdoor environmental conditions.
SYNC 2100: Kalkitech SYNC 2100 mini Remote Terminal Units are substation rugged devices with up to 128 IO points support in various DI/ DO/ AI combinations. The advanced security aspects combined with large protocol support and IEC-61131* makes SYNC 2100 a versatile device for numerous Distribution Automation applications.
SYNC 1000: Kalkitech SYNC 1000 series consists of field-rugged monitoring devices for Distribution Automation and Smart Grid applications, that combine IO capabilities, substation and SCADA protocol support, IP ruggedness as well as wireless communication capabilities over GPRS/ CDMA/ RF and secure VPN.
