The new QEd 1000 is an edge device that integrates several use cases related to the secondary substation in one single solution. Thanks to its virtualization technology, it can act as: interoperable meter data concentrator supporting multiple RF/PLC protocols (Meters & More, PRIME, G3, DLMS, etc), Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) to extend remote control to the LV grid, as well as a basic router to enable seamless communication.
By integrating multiple merging units, QEd 1000 is able to monitor: the status of LV feeders and any faults occurred; temperature, current and voltage level of the transformer; environmental parameters (temperature, humidity, presence of ozone, etc.).
In order to exploit QEd 1000’s cloud-edge potential to the fullest, the solution can be integrated with our new centralized Low Voltage Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (LV SCADA) platform. This powerful software enables to further improve the visibility on the real-time status of LV grid and perform remote control functions by leveraging on the virtualized RTU embedded in the device, without the need of field-crew intervention.
