    WSO

    Wireless Sensor for Overhead Lines

    Apply the WSO wireless sensors for overhead lines to improve distribution system reliability by remotely monitoring circuits for faults and outages. Using centrally reported data, dispatch repair personnel directly to the faulted line section, reducing outage durations by up to 50%. Users can also periodically log circuit load data for system analysis and remotely monitor the system.

    Find Rep By Location

    Remote Fault Monitoring—Receive wireless indication of fault status from the WSO-11 Wireless Sensor for Overhead Lines to pinpoint the fault location before dispatching troubleshooting crews. The WSO-11 uses the AutoRANGER trip logic for simple integration with existing protection schemes. After detecting a fault, the WSO-11 alerts personnel of the affected area with an exception fault report.

    Outage Indication—Identify de-energized sections of the circuit with exception outage reports. After the outage, the WSO-11 automatically sends a restoration report indicating when the line section is re-energized.

    Feeder Reconfiguration—Install near remote-controlled, motor-operated switches to provide information for feeder reconfiguration.

    Momentary Event Detection—Detect momentary faults, momentary outages, disturbance events, and load pickup events to improve system reliability.

    Load Monitor—Approximate circuit loading with average or peak load data refreshed every 24 hours.

    How To Install WSO-10 & WSO-11 Overhead Wireless Sensors
    • Hotstick installable, magnet tool activation, local display, activate install and confirm operation within 5 minutes.
    • Monitors load current, trip threshold, battery status, and history of outages and surge events.
    • Allows more efficient maintenance scheduling using stored data profiles.
    • Prevents false tripping with the inrush restraint feature, which allows for coordinated integration with automated reclosing schemes.
    • Displays visual target in addition to remote indication via a 2.4 GHz wireless system (either Ingenu or Trilliant network).
    • Employs AutoRANGER technology that automatically adjusts trip threshold based on load.

    Note: Consult factory for available radio solution.
