GRID20/20’s OptaNODE® solution consists of hardware and software components solely conceived to solve the industry’s intra-grid monitoring needs in a cost effective manner, by monitoring and managing the Clean Tech SuperGrid™.
OptaNODE® Best in Class integrated solution
The OptaNODE® family of products provides the key enablers for converting standard distribution transformers into Smart Transformers. The solution can be easily deployed stand-alone, to immediately provide highly accurate visibility into the Distribution Grid; or it can be combined with existing AMI networks and SCADA systems to achieve a genuine comprehensive Smart Grid experience.
OptaNODE® DTM devices are specially designed to monitor the performance of distribution transformers, while leveraging their strategic location within the grid.
Equipped with two-way communications and onboard data storage, OptaNODE® DTM devices provide vital intra-grid information.
OptaNODE® HESS allows users to achieve a myriad of functions within one consolidated system, transforming granular data into actionable information.
GRID2020's exclusive technology combines unique key features
The single phase Distribution Transformer Monitor consists of accurate and patented sensing, metrology and communications components, combined into a compact and lightweight self-contained device. It installs in minutes, attaching to the transformer by means of its integrated magnets.
