Smart grid communications and applications platform provider Ambient Corp. and IntelliSAW, a developer of cable-free sensor systems for smart grid applications, have integrated their products to provide temperature and humidity monitoring of energized switchgear to IEC61850- or DNP3-based supervisory control and data acquisition systems via Modbus protocol translation.

Ambient says the two companies' joint offering leverages IntelliSAW's passive, self-powered sensors' ability to remotely and continuously monitor critical connection points within switchgear and transformers and the Ambient Smart Grid Node's flexible communications and protocol translation capability to help deliver advanced monitoring for critical electric power assets.

IntelliSAW and Ambient will deploy the first joint solutions with customers in Europe and South America and actively pursue opportunities in the geographies in which they operate.
