AMETEK INTRODUCES THE SMART-GAP FOR POWER LINE COMMUNICATIONS

 

Coral Springs, FL, U.S.A. – AMETEK Power Instruments—a recognized leader in power line communications for electric utilities-- has announced the release of the Smart-Gap product which revolutionizes the method to clear surges on power line carrier systems.

 

The Smart-Gap improves the performance and reliability of your power line carrier communications by minimizing the impact of any surge induced loss of carrier signal, also known as carrier holes. The Smart-Gap operates faster than traditional spark gap solutions, extinguishing surges in less than 0.5 msec. to minimize any signal loss.

 

The maintenance free Smart Gap is an ideal replacement for gas discharge tube or air gap protection which require regular maintenance. The Smart Gap’s compact size provides an easy retrofit into existing line tuners and CCVTs.
