Survalent Technology, a provider of smart grid solutions, has commissioned a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for Rio Grande Electric Cooperative (RGEC). RGEC serves 18 counties in Texas and two counties in New Mexico.

Survalent says the system features its open architecture system, with applications that include WorldView, SCADA Explorer, IED Wizard and Control Panel, SCADA Add-In, Remote Alarm Annunciation, External Clock Interface and Event Data Recording.

"This SCADA system will offer Rio Grande a very good tool to minimize outages in their extensive distribution network without the need of sending crews very long distances," notes Survalent's Mike Roth.
