Utility communications firm Ambient Corp. and smart grid sensor company IntelliSAW, are integrating their products to provide temperature and humidity monitoring of energized switchgear to IEC61850 or DNP3-based SCADA systems, via Modbus protocol translation.

The two companies' joint offering leverages IntelliSAW's passive, self-powered sensors' ability to remotely and continuously monitor critical connection points within switchgear and transformers, and the Ambient Smart Grid Node's flexible communications and protocol translation capability, to deliver advanced monitoring for critical electric power assets.

"We have used Ambient's Smart Grid Nodes to provide connectivity to, and protocol conversion for, our temperature monitoring solution to ease the path to customer deployment, enabling them to use their existing SCADA systems to monitor critical electrical distribution infrastructure with our non-invasive, cable-free sensors," said Tom Cunneen, CEO of IntelliSAW.

IntelliSAW and Ambient will deploy the first joint solutions with customers in Europe and South America, and will pursue opportunities in the geographies in which they operate.
