Introducing Distributed Electrical Sensing (DES)

We reduce outage and operational cost with the world’s only distributed sensor networks for operators of complex MV-HV power systems.

Our passive sensor arrays require no power or data networks, and provide live data more reliably and securely from more locations. This wide area, multipoint technology is ideal for automated condition monitoring, reduced scheduled maintenance, improved asset management decisions and simplified protection schemes.
