The ‘sub.net’ concept evolved from the thirty years experience of our core team designing power system monitors to suit customer requirements.
In 2003 we concluded that the then current standard technology did not permit what we wished to achieve with our next generation product and that taking the ‘embedded‘ technology route would.
The use of an FPGA device instead of ‘off-the-shelf’ microprocessors permitted the functionality required to achieve the specification we had in mind greatly reducing the hardware component count simultaneously.
Removing the weak points of standard legacy transient / disturbance recorders, increasing MTBF, including the functionality to suit most requirements in one mega-consolidated unit and at the same time greatly reducing product costs were the targets of a challenging five year development project completed in 2008 after five years of Research and Development. Further refinements and improvements continue ad infinitum to suit individual customer requests and new standards more efficiently than was previously possible.
Sub.net is a living upgradable and expandable platform capable of covering the vast majority of Power System monitoring applications more efficiently and for a longer term than ever before.
