Wireless data radio portfolio at ABB Automation and Power World
FreeWave demonstrated how combined solutions allow customers to use wireless data radios for effective distribution automation in the smart grid.
FreeWave Technologies showcased its portfolio of wireless data radio solutions, including its I/O Sensor Module and FGR2-PE, for a multitude of Smart Grid applications at this year’s ABB Automation and Power World.
FreeWave’s I/O Sensor Module combines measurement and communications in one package to measure voltage, current and temperature at a three-phase sensor. The power line data is then sent to the utility for monitoring and management.
The FGR2 Series wireless radios offer noise filtering and interference handling, are capable of accurately transmitting data up to 60 miles, and offer the lowest power consumption in the industry, according to FreeWave.
