“Smart Substations” avoid blind spots in the power grid
The challenges & cost pressure in the operation of medium and low voltage networks are increasing. Unfortunately, network operators at these voltage levels are either “visually impaired” (mid voltage grid) or completely “blind” (low voltage grid). Solutions for digital substations have been on the market for several years, but unfortunately they are usually expensive and/or connected with the exchange of essential components of the substation. Therefore there is a need for cost-effective monitoring solutions. Lemonbeat’s “Smart Substation” offers energy-related benefits as well as economic advantages.
What are my benefits?
With Lemonbeat’s smart substation you get access to all critical parameters at a glance. A Web Dashboard provides information on all locations and about status of the installations:
Advantages compared to Competition:
Modern IoT technology instead of classic automation technology enables low-cost hardware, SW platform can be scaled and expanded almost indefinitely, substation can be monitored with an investment of less than 1,000€ => Significantly less expensive than conventional solutions
Immediate effects in monitoring and operation
Optimise operation and planning in the short term due to rapid localisation of faults, recording of detailed operating data – on request also for each low voltage outlet – , significantly improved planning basis for asset management and operation.
Well thought-through installation & connection
Simple on-site installation, end-to-end solution from a single source (from data acquisition to cloud interface), integration into existing Backend systems for network and asset management possible => Can be used immediately, connection to existing IT without problems
How does it work?
Lemonbeat’s cost-effective multi device gateway taps data via Modbus interface and transports it to the cloud via stable LTE connection (or cable if available). Our robust cloud platform enables easy device management and delivers data to a standardized Cloud2Cloud interface. A dashboard that can be adapted to customer requirements provides the desired information as a cockpit at a glance. The system is compatible with energy meters and current transformers from different suppliers.
But wait… Substations in electricity networks are only one option – the Solution is easily transferable to Gas-, Water- & Heat-Grids as well.
Simple Device Integration
Faster Time to Market
Our customers & partners can only confirm our advantages:
Lemonbeat’s solutions offer a compelling mix of accurate and efficient energy monitoring, with an ease in reading for the utility provider
With Lemonbeat´s modern IoT technology we become a moving power in the area of digitization of building automation
Lemonbeat delivers far more than connectivity & superior radio tech; machines could perform optimizations autonomously in direct communication with LB technology
We wanted a solution without additional installation work, which is fully integrated in the meter and does not need repeaters to transport signals safely from the cellar to the respective living room – whether in a single-family or multi-family house. […] The radio communication is based on the powerful protocol stack of our partner Lemonbeat
The specification of Lemonbeat shows clearly that already during the conceptional phase security-by-design principles have been implemented which feature numerous advantages compared to security procedures of existing IoT applications.
