Adperc and IntelliSAW bring next generation wireless sensor technology to Brazil's Smart Grid market
Andover, MA, US - IntelliSAW, a leading provider of next generation wireless sensor systems for smart grid applications has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Adperc of Brazil. Adperc will provide distribution, system integration and marketing services for IntelliSAW's innovative wireless/passive temperature monitoring system throughout Brazil in electric power transmission and distribution systems.
Adperc is a supplier of critical test, control, and monitoring equipment for the electric power industry, with offices in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Founded in 1985, Adperc has established relationships with key players within the Brazilian power generation and distribution markets.
Access to IntelliSAW's unique electrical switchgear temperature monitoring system will allow Adperc to expand its portfolio of services into the Smart Grid arena where IntelliSAW's technology provides real-time, continuous monitoring of mission-critical electric power substation switchgear.
IntelliSAW's proprietary solution is wireless and does not require any power to the sensors affording ease of installation and system commissioning while avoiding introducing any arcing or flashover concerns. Moreover the IntelliSAW system outputs data directly onto existing communication networks using standard protocols allowing for instantaneous monitoring and control.
Adalberto Pereira Junior, Commercial Director of Adperc, commented "We are excited to add the new state-of-the art IntelliSAW electrical monitoring system to our range of solutions in the Smart Grid space. The robust, flexible and highly-scalable architecture of the IntelliSAW system lends itself ideally to the inhospitable environments encountered in switchgear installations, as there is no longer any requirement to access the sensors after installation; reducing on-going maintenance costs, improving safety for service personnel and maximising system uptime."
Tom Cunneen, CEO of IntelliSAW, commented, "IntelliSAW is delighted to have secured Adperc as its exclusive distributor to the Brazilian market. Brazil is a huge growth area for Smart Grid technology and Adperc's significant presence in this market provides IntelliSAW with a strong partner in the region. Our next generation sensor system provides significant cost and safety advantages over legacy switchgear monitoring products and we believe can play a vital role in enabling Brazil's power generation market to scale up to meet the ever-increasing demands of its booming economy."
