Hitachi announces new wireless router for grid stability
Hitachi Energy has introduced a new cellular router for utility ecosystems which is “laying the foundation for grid modernization”.
According to a press statement, the device provides state-of-the-art communications and cybersecurity, purpose-built to support industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications for utilities, smart cities, oil & gas, manufacturing, and mining operations. The TRO610 is part of Hitachi Energy’s wireless communication portfolio of high availability, high reliability, high throughput, and low latency products to future-proof mission-critical industrial and utility operations.
As intelligent field devices permeate across power distribution networks, the TRO610 provides greater efficiency by enabling a wider variety of edge compute applications. With advanced capabilities like edge computing and multiple secure connectivity options, the TRO610 lays the foundation for grid modernization and future grid applications.
“Advanced connectivity options play a significant role as utilities and industries increasingly adopt technology solutions either on-premise or via the cloud to digitalize and improve operations in an environmentally sustainable manner,” said Massimo Danieli, Managing Director of the Grid Automation business unit at Hitachi Energy. He added, “The TRO610 increases asset and application visibility in the field, enabling greater grid stability, new customer services, and a reduced total cost of ownership.”
