Hawaiian Electric Co. (HECO) has selected FreeWave Technologies for a fault circuit indicator (FCI) project. By installing FCIs throughout the island of Oahu and utilizing FreeWave's wireless data radios, HECO can effectively mitigate power outages or issues along the power line by detecting fault data and transmitting it in real time, according to FreeWave.

HECO worked with FreeWave and partner Power Delivery Products Inc., which provided the Smart Navigator FCI sensors, to install a network using FreeWave's FGR2-PE radios for long-range wireless communications. Deployment kicked off in late 2012 and will continue throughout this year. Once the initial project is complete, FCIs will be deployed across the entire island of Oahu.
