SMART DISTRIBUTION LINKS YOUR ENERGY NETWORK

04-05-2020

In recent years, various industrial product technologies have converged to create an IIoT ecosystem of devices and software platforms. Through the gathering and analysis of critical infrastructure data generated by smart industrial devices, this ecosystem has helped companies gain insight into the performance of their critical assets.

An accurate and comprehensive understanding of the performance of a plant’s products and applications informs the kind of strategic decision making that improves efficiencies and reduces risk.

Within the context of an industrial plant’s electrical infrastructure, widespread deployment of smart, connected devices grants end users access to a Medium and Low Voltage Smart Distribution architecture.

This Smart Distribution network helps to ensure power supply continuity, minimise the service requirements of circuit breakers and other critical switchgear assets, and ensures plants with an integrated connected infrastructure can monitor the health of critical switchboards in real time with minimal intervention from people.

NHP’s range of Smart Distribution connected products for both Medium and Low voltage applications can help customers:

• maximise power availability
• monitor critical switchgear health
• optimise running costs and energy consumption
• improve safety against arc flash
• automate traditionally manual testing processes (such as month generator starts).

To find out more about how NHPs Smart Distribution architecture can unlock critical assets data to help drive your business performance to higher levels, contact your local NHP power distribution technology specialist today or visit www.nhp.com.au.
