42 Technology and Western Power Distribution completed first U.K. field trials of FuseOhm Internet-of-Things (IoT) monitoring system for electricity substations

November 13, 2019

  • IoT Trials – Engineering company 42 Technology and U.K.-based electricity distribution operator Western Power Distribution (WPD) completed six-month field trial of FuseOhm, industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT) monitoring system for electricity substations
  • FuseOhm Technology – Self-powered ‘plug and play’ adapters that can be connected to existing fuseways, storing data about substation locally or transferring it via wired or wireless networks
  • Benefits or Functions – Allows real-time monitoring of substation data such as voltage, temperature and phase angle, as well as controlling and remote diagnosing of issues, while easier to install and more cost-effective than other monitoring systems
  • Potential Demand – Distribution network operators (DNOs) under pressure to monitor assets, improve network stability and performance, and identify stress points to network caused by increased electric vehicle charging, use of domestic heat pumps and consumers exporting energy back to grid
  • Commercialization – 42 Technology currently working with established equipment and communications provider to eventually commercialize FuseOhm for market
