Adperc and IntelliSAW offer wireless sensor technology to smart grid market in Brazil

IntelliSAW, a provider of wireless sensor systems for
smart grid applications, has entered into a distribution agreement with Adperc
of Brazil.

Adperc will provide distribution, system integration and
marketing services for IntelliSAW’s innovative wireless/passive temperature
monitoring system throughout Brazil in electric power transmission and
distribution systems.

“The architecture of the IntelliSAW system lends
itself ideally to the inhospitable environments encountered in switchgear
installations, as there is no longer any requirement to access the sensors
after installation; reducing on-going maintenance costs, improving safety for
service personnel and maximising system uptime,” Adalberto Pereira Junior,
commercial director of Adperc.

Access to IntelliSAW’s electrical switchgear temperature
monitoring system will allow Adperc to expand its services into the Smart Grid
arena where IntelliSAW’s technology provides real-time, continuous monitoring
of mission-critical electric power substation switchgear.

IntelliSAW’s solution is wireless and does not require
any power to the sensors affording ease of installation and system
commissioning while avoiding introducing any arcing or flashover concerns. The
IntelliSAW system outputs data directly onto existing communication networks
using standard protocols allowing for instantaneous monitoring and control.

Our next generation sensor system provides significant
cost and safety advantages over legacy switchgear monitoring products and we
believe can play a vital role in enabling Brazil’s power generation market to
scale up to meet the ever-increasing demands of its booming economy,” said
Tom Cunneen, CEO of IntelliSAW.
