Grid20/20 US designed and manufactured OptaNODE Distribution Transformer Monitor (DTM) leverages the strategic value of transformers within the distribution grid into Smart Transformers. The OptaNODE DTM and PDTM devices grant utilities a clear vision of the LV network and distribution transformer health.

Grid20/20 pride the OptaNODE solution on ease and speed of installation, accuracy of patented outdoor rated and UV stable current sensors as well as compactness and robustness of design. Voltage, Current, Demand and Temperature feedback is aggregated and sent wirelessly (3G/RF-MESH) to Grid2020 servers for real-time analytics and reporting.

The HESS (Head End Server System) hosted by Grid20/20 in a leading US Datacentre provides storage of the collected data plus analytics and reporting designed specifically around the asset health of distribution transformers and LV network. Overloaded and underutilized transformers are detected instantly and current/voltage issues are concisely identified.

Grid20/20 provides bi-directional energy feedback on transformers connected to Distributed Generation (wind/solar) ensuring distribution transformers are still operating within their design constraints.  

The ethos surrounding the OptaNODE design is to keep the unit cost low, allowing for greater network deployment which collectively provides a clearer picture of the LV network as a whole. The OptaNODE units are self-contained and maintenance free, designed for permanent installation both pole-top and pad-mount.

Optional extras: include SCADA integration, Energy balancing (theft detection), RF-Mesh compatibility, outage notification.

KEY ADVANTAGES
  • Self-contained/Maintenance Free unit: Metering, Sensing, and Communications fully integrated.
  • High accuracy of monitored transformer parameters within all ranges of operation
  • Speed and simplicity of installation. No on-site calibration.
  • AMI, SCADA, MDM, 3rd party platforms integration via DNP3, FTP, Web-services and MultiSpeak Interfaces.
  • Flexibility to operate in diverse networks: multiple communications options available.
  • Reduced complexity – all backhaul infrastructure is operated by Grid20/20 meaning no on-site expertise required.
  • Web Based, secure graphical user interface available anywhere in the world.
