We produce the world’s only passive electrical sensor networks for high voltage power system monitoringDelivering actionable information to improve reliability and reduce operational cost
Light speed sensor technology to give complete oversight
The energy transition is challenging the power industry to accommodate new paradigms of flexible supply and demand, without reducing reliability or increasing costs. Scaling up real-time visibility and control is needed to manage this change reliably and economically, and this requires a new approach to power system instrumentation.
At Synaptec, we have responded to this challenge by developing a completely passive electrical instrumentation technology that needs no infrastructure at the point of measurement, can be interrogated over long distances, and is highly secure.
This enables affordable, resilient, and granular instrumentation of remote, hard-to-reach circuits and assets, providing a powerful platform for wide-area synchronous measurements throughout power networks.
Sectors we support
We offer advanced instrumentation solutions to our customers, enabling digital substations, wide-area protection and control, and automated condition monitoring.
We provide automated condition monitoring of critical generation assets to reduce outages, maximise availability, and improve safety.
Our technology enables condition-based maintenance of complex and remote electrical infrastructure in private power networks such as railways.
