Many of today’s smart grid monitors do not detect damaged lines or poles until there is a loss of power or a fire.
Recon Powerline detects damage and sends an alert before there is a loss of power or a fire.
On your watch we can have:
FEWER & SHORTER
Real-time, line-specific movement and temperature data puts you in control.
No more guessing which lines are in danger means fewer unnecessary outages and more targeted re-routing while damaged lines are being repaired.
Responsible infrastructure spending
IN EVERY WAY
Recon Powerline hardware and monitoring costs total less than $5000 mile per year. Purpose-built edge computing not only keeps Recon's data packets small, very task-specific and incredibly reliable, but also less expensive to build and operate than all other alternatives.
LOWER INSTALL COSTS
Recon Powerline's proprietary drone installation process can install a tag on a line (despite corona interference) every 32 seconds. We can cover tens of miles in a day in even the most difficult and inaccessible terrain without the need for trucks or climbers.
LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS
Tag batteries last up to 10 years without needing maintenance or replacement.
LOWER USAGE COSTS
Fully-automatic alerts are sent with GPS coordinates that allow crews to immediately understand the location and nature of the damage before crews or costly helicoptors are deployed .
Put simply, can anyone afford not to use Recon Powerline?
Three parts: It's been getting hotter and drier. Modern living is putting more pressure on our aging electrical infrastructure than ever before. There is more wood in the forests and more homes near that wood.
Wireless smart sensors with extremely low power consumption track line movement and temperature and send real-time alerts about threatening conditions that may or may not be outwardly visible to operators.
Drone-installable sensors and an optimized combination of cellular / satellite-based communications and edge computing ensure effortless install and network notifications even the most remote areas.
