Most substations have several generations of monitoring and control equipment - everything from Remote Terminal Units with T1 interfaces to Smart Grid AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) equipment with Ethernet interfaces. And that's only one of the challenges associated with Substation Communications. Add to this strained fiber cable resources, harsh environment, remote locations, and security issues and providing substation communication networks can be a daunting task.
Pulsecom's optical communications equipment is in use today to provide T1 and Ethernet communication to remotely located substations.
- Long range optical transceivers enable communication with remote locations
- Cost-effective means for combining different optical wavelengths minimize fiber cable requirements
- Outside plant design meets temperature, susceptibility, and immunity requirements
- Nailed-up communication channels address security concerns
