RAD Introduces New Distance Teleprotection Solution
Power companies seeking cost-effective solutions for transmitting Teleprotection data across their communications networks now have a wider range of options to choose from.
RAD, the veteran manufacturer of service assured networking solutions for utilities, has introduced to the market a unique, future-proof solution that integrates a Distance Teleprotection module into the company’s popular hybrid Megaplex multiservice multiplexer, which supports both TDM and packet-based uplinks.
“Megaplex is the only Teleprotection solution in the market that seamlessly transports distance commands over both legacy and packet infrastructure,” notes Mati Epstein, Line of Business Head for Utilities and Transportation at RAD. “Therefore, it is guaranteed to be a wise investment in the years ahead as power companies complete their migration to PSNs.”
“By incorporating the Distance Teleprotection module inside of the Megaplex, RAD is also able to lower costs and network complexity by completely eliminating the need for traditional, separate standalone devices and reducing the number of cables that have to be installed,” Epstein explains.
Supports Both Distance and Differential Teleprotection
Another major advantage of choosing the Megaplex is that it also supports Differential Teleprotection (including C37.94) in the same box. The Megaplex itself is a fully redundant platform, complies with IEEE 1613 and has a wide range of Ethernet, voice and data interfaces that support the full range of substation communications requirements.
“No less important for power companies is that RAD’s Megaplex has an established track record of success, having been deployed by leading utilities on six continents to transmit Ethernet, legacy data and voice,” concludes Epstein. “It is a veteran solution on which power companies can safely rely to meet all their mission-critical requirements.”
RAD’s utility customers include Eskom, Terna, Enel, National Grid USA, Hydro Quebec, Endesa, IEC, Kepco, Meralco, E-on, Elia, Nampower, AES, Powercor, and Novosibirsk Energo.
