Andover, MA, US - IntelliSAW, a leading provider of next generation wireless sensor systems for smart grid applications announced today that it is releasing to the market an integrated meter product that combines an HMI function with IntelliSAW's innovative sensor interrogation electronics, effectively reducing the number of components required to implement a complete system solution.
The IM485-INT also includes input for humidity sensors which afford the end-user the opportunity to conduct humidity and ambient temperature monitoring in parallel with IntelliSAW's SAW based temperature sensors. Moreover the IM485-INT operates from line power thereby eliminating the need for a separate power supply.
Tom Cunneen, CEO of IntelliSAW noted; "the IM485-INT further enhances the value proposition intrinsic to IntelliSAW's technology. By combing the system reader function with a full-featured HMI we have greatly simplified the system implementation process while bringing additional functionality to the end-user. At the same time, the option to add humidity sensors to the system brings another point of performance monitoring within these critical electric power delivery assets".
IntelliSAW, a trading division of Transense Technologies plc (AIM: TRT.L), develops and markets patent protected wireless, passive surface acoustic wave (SAW) based sensing systems targeted at challenging industrial applications. Its IS485 family of products provides temperature monitoring of critical electric power switchgear equipment in Smart Grid applications.
