S&C Electric Company deploys IntelliTeam CNMS at ENMAX Power
Mar 17, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
S&C Electric Company has deployed an IntelliTeam CNMS, or Communication Network Management System, at ENMAX Power Corporation.
IntelliTeam CNMS offers a real-time, web-based solution for monitoring and managing radios applied on utility power systems. Its intuitive interface has many views including a deployment view integrated with Google Maps.
Authorized users can monitor current and archived data on SpeedNet Radio networks of all sizes, as well as manage each individual radio and effect configuration changes. The software displays a chronological list of different level alarms and events, and can alert users via email when they are not logged in. All of this is accomplished through standard browsers without the need to install specialized software on client PCs, S&C Electric said.
"Reliable communication systems are an important ingredient of our distribution automation system, for which response speeds are critical," says Graeme Cowie, Engineering Systems Automation, ENMAX.
IntelliTeam CNMS complements the utility's advanced, automated smart grid, which already uses S&C's IntelliTeam II Automatic Restoration System and S&C automated overhead and underground switches and IntelliRupter Pulseclosers, S&C Electric added.
"As smart grid deployments expand, utilities require new tools to manage these critical systems," says Mike Edmonds, S&C vice president-Strategic Solutions. "The IntelliTeam CNMS installation at ENMAX demonstrates how communication management systems can improve the reliability and operating costs for smart grid systems."
