Landis+Gyr and Congruitive have a long history of product collaboration on RF mesh solutions. The two companies have a licensing agreement that allows Landis+Gyr to market Congruitive products for controlling distribution automation (DA) systems, while further integrating those products into the Gridstream family of Smart Grid solutions. The agreement enables Landis+Gyr to leverage its strong leadership in wireless mesh technologies, AMI, and metering using the Congruitive DA software platform.
Many of Landis+Gyr’s customers use Congruitive products for advanced control of distribution automation systems. The Landis+Gyr SCADA Center software suite provides an integrated system for controlling field devices such as reclosers, sectionalizing switches, interrupters, and capacitor controllers. The integration of Congruitive’s software enables acquired data to be viewed directly by operators using SCADA Center, or served to other higher level corporate systems, such as EMS, DMS, and OMS. The combined solution optimizes bandwidth in the Landis+Gyr RF mesh network by using the intelligence built into the Landis+Gyr RF radios to analyze data changes before reports are sent.
The solution allows Landis+Gyr customers to deploy a fully integrated distribution automation and advanced metering network with a single point of contact and support. For more information, visit the Landis+Gyr web site.
