- Overhead Line FPIs
Overhead Line FPIs Fault Passage Indicators for Overhead Line Networks Intelligent fault detection Smart Navigator 2.0 fault passage indicator (FPI) provides directional overcurrent and earth fault indication, conductor temperature monitoring and directional power flow detection, within a 1kg self-powered overhead line sensor. Overhead FPIs are supplied as a set of 3 units with low power radio links between the units. The central unit includes built in 4G/2G communications providing RTU functionality and a native DNP3 link to the control room. The innovative clamping mechanism enables field teams to install FPIs on live overhead lines up to 12 meters high using a hot stick, eliminating any interruption to customer supply. Monitoring for network analysis Smart Navigator 2.0 delivers directional power flow detection, without the need for a grounded voltage reference, enabling the operator to deploy at scale for full visibility of directional power flows through the smart network. Conductor surface temperature sensing enables deployment of real-time ratings to overhead lines at scale, providing visibility of true thermal capacity and assisting the operator in the informed release of constraints on connected generation. Smart Navigator 2.0 offers distribution state estimation and real-time conductor temperature-based post-fault ratings through our powerful iHost™ platform. Deployment options Smart Navigator 2.0 products are available for the full range of HV distribution voltages: Smart Navigator 2.0 - Intelligent fault detection for 11kV and 33kV overhead networks Smart Navigator 2.0 HV - Online monitoring for 66kV and 132kV overhead networks Smart Navigator 2.0 LC - Fault detection for rural overhead networks with low load current Remote maintenance such as software updates or configuration adjustments can be performed via the GSM / LTE connection.

- Underground Cable FPIs
Underground Cable FPIs Fault Passage Indicators for Underground Cable Systems Cable fault detection Our FPIs for underground HV cable networks provide versatile, fully configurable, overcurrent and earth fault detection. We offer options for both communicating and local earth fault indication. Visibility of fault passage enables the control room to identify the faulty section of network and coordinate local switching to isolate the fault and restore supplies to customers more quickly. FPIs are offered with range of power supply options to suit your application. Our battery powered FPIs provide up to 15 years of maintenance-free operation, or for more data-intense applications, power can be sourced from the substations auxiliary AC or DC supply. Control room visibility Our NX-series of devices offers built-in RTU functionality and 4G communications (with 2G failover). The NX-series can deliver a native DNP3 link direct to the control room as well as over-the-air firmware updates and configuration management from iHost™. With options for directional (using available voltage input terminals on the switchgear) or non-directional fault passage indication, load current monitoring, power flow detection, twin earth fault indication, USB and Bluetooth local communications, and much more, the NX-series is a key component of your network monitoring system. Local fault indication Our F-series devices offer core fault passage functionality and is the FPI of choice for many utilities. Designed to be installed at switching points on the distribution network, local indication is provided via hyper-bright LEDs. The devices can also be connected to a local distribution automation RTU via the output contact, to alert the control room to fault events on the network. Our F-series products are compatible with 1A secondary CTs as well as our flexible retrofit CT solutions. They can be offered as a directional FPI, subject to suitable voltage input terminals on the switchgear. Get in Touch Contact Us

Our Products Innovative monitoring and control technologies for electricity network and system operators RTUs and Smart Sensors The increase in embedded generation, changes in load patterns and adoption of electric vehicles are just some of the reasons that power flows, voltage profiles and constraints on the distribution network are becoming more complex and no longer match traditional models used by network planners and design teams. Taking action to keep the grid stable requires that operators have visibility of what is happening out on the network. Nortech technology components provide network and system operators the ability to see deep into the network beyond the reach of traditional SCADA systems.

Life at Nortech Our company culture values the individual, placing great emphasis on working as multi-discipline teams to deliver innovative products and systems. Get in Touch Modern high-tech offices Our main office is in Evesham, Worcestershire. Design, development, production and administration staff are based here. We also have a satellite office in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, for those who prefer the excitement offered by city life. Responsible, Fair, Inclusive Nortech’s ambition is bold – we aim to be regarded as a leading provider of technology enabling the transition to a low carbon power system. How we achieve this is just as important. We respect difference, value diversity and aim to provide equal opportunities for all employees. Team Working To celebrate Horstmann’s 70th anniversary we joined in with 2 days of team building, problem solving and as it happened quite a lot of German sausage, cabbage and beer. The activity day was hosted at a Landrover experience site in Germany. Pictured is Keith, Nortech’s Product Engineer, leading an international rescue team “problem solving” their way across a ravine. Mental Health Our charity of choice this year is MIND. We combined our customer questionnaire with an invite for comments about Nortech in return for charity donations. We were delighted to get a 40% response from our survey and in turn helped MIND continue supporting those experiencing mental health issues Community It’s not all about work, it’s not all about us, it’s right to give something back and support others. Photographed is the local Under 10’s football team wearing kit donated by Nortech which displays the logo of the Midlands Air Ambulance - benefitting two local good causes.

- iHost | Nortech
iHost TM A single platform enabling customers to manage the increasing numbers of small, low cost, communicating “smart field devices” iHost ™ Platform Visualisation of alarms and status, archiving of data, reporting and trending all available on one flexible platform. As well as supporting Nortech’s own RTUs, iHost offers the ideal off-the-shelf “head end system” for large populations of communicating field devices from multiple vendors. iHost is a scalable platform ready to accept data from any communicating device and then combine and share that data with other users and systems. Key Features Collects, processes and stores data from remote field devices Dashboard analytics and visualisation toolset Protocol conversion and data concentrator Population, configuration and firmware management IEC 62351 security, TLS tunneling and device certificate management Provides several industry standard protocols including; DNP3, IEC 60870-5, ICCP, Modbus, IEC 61850, MQTT and Kafka Support for many proprietary third party protocols Capable of simultaneous communications with several thousands of field devices Integration with SCADA Network Management System Unified Power Quality analysis and reporting platform iHost ™ Historian At the heart of the platform is the iHost database. Our integrated datastore has evolved to meet the changing needs of iHost users and the manufacturers of field devices which generate the data we look after. It has been designed to store many billions of values using a highly optimised and compressed time-series storage format . Providing access to the data is a separate challenge and something we invest a lot of software developer time and effort getting right. iHost includes a suite of dashboard analytics and visualisation tools to transform the time-series data into useful information. Deployment options Cloud hosted On-premises - with high availability options Ruggedised hardware local monitoring and control It's your data We have always been committed to making access to data as simple and open as possible (albeit behind firewalls on a secure network). Whilst we aim for iHost to provide users everything they need to interact with data collected from field devices we realise there may be times when this isn’t the only approach. So if you want to build your own reports, design something special for use on smart phones or tablets or even build an entire analytics application you are free to do so.
