MoniBee

Continuous improvement of your power grid!

With that thought in mind we designed one flexible and highly configurable power grid monitoring platform that allows multiple hardware and software configurations. It measures and makes additional calculations of the electrical characteristics (current, voltage, phase angle, energy, frequency, etc.) of the power grid. The data can then be sent through analog outputs or communication interfaces for further control, notification or visualization tasks.

The platform is originally equipped with the ZekaStream™ technology allowing high speed data logging within the microseconds range. This makes the device a highly valuable tool for catching transients and analyzing high-speed processes. Only one device with such a technology in your design is enough to change the way you commission the whole power plant.

Having numerous communication interfaces including Ethernet, RS485 and CANBus and utilizing Modbus, makes the integration with your industrial network an easy task. Profibus interface is also available using the GreenBee Industrial Gateway communication bridge.

Several digital and analog inputs and outputs are available for additional programming allowing extra flexibility during the system design or even when the project is in its final phase. The integrated Modbus master allows different Modbus slaves to be attached to extend IO and functionality.

The major application area is monitoring of heavily loaded power grids and their components. This brings knowledge allowing easily allocating problems and reducing energy costs.

The MoniBee Power Grid Monitor devices are power monitoring tools that give sufficient information to commissioning engineers and operators to diagnose the system health thus making adaptation and improvement a continuous process.

They have already been integrated in some very complex Megawatt power plants and proved to be an extremely valuable tool during the commissioning process. This includes the already operating latest Transocean drillships of type Ultradeep Water including the ones with the first hybrid drill-floor in the world.
