Survalent Technology has commissioned a new advanced distribution management system (ADMS) for the Rural Electric Convenience Cooperative (RECC), which serves about 5,700 consumers across five counties in Illinois.

Steve Strauss, Survalent's vice president of sales for the eastern U.S., explains, "With RECC depending on SCADA to provide load reduction for demand response, they needed to quickly update their system when their prior supplier only gave a few months' notice that they were no longer supplying products or supporting existing customers."

The new system features Survalent’s open-architecture system based on Windows Server. It includes several of Survalent's open system applications, such as WorldView, SCADA Explorer, IED Wizard and Control Panel, SCADA Add-In, Command Sequencing, Remote Alarm Annunciation, Load Curtailment, MultiSpeak, and Dynamic Voltage Regulation.
