Sensei is able to communicate with a vast array of devices in the field and substation. IED’s are varied and disparate, even within a utility’s own infrastructure approach: You may have three types of GSU’s in one substation, but possibly have over 30 types across your fleet. This is a common issue. Sensei offers a solution to manage devices, whether heterogeneous or homogeneous – and if you are considering new devices, Sensei will work together with you to determine the best approach for gathering, normalizing and transmitting data to and from these devices.
No matter what type of device, no matter where it is in the substation/swichyard, no matter how it is currently collecting data - Sensei will bring the data back and make it available for correlation and analysis for you.
Asynchronous communications or bi-directional communications are options for devices in the field. Sensei will work with your team to determine what state your communications are today, and what state you would like to be in the future, best case.
