This blog is the third installment in our four part series on why sensors are a better investment than Fault Current Indicators (FCI’s). In our previous posts, we discussed how LightHouse MV Sensors are more accurate and offer exclusive Predictive Grid Analytics Software. In this post, we will focus on the third reason why utilities should choose sensors: LightHouse Sensors can be used for multiple applications and FCI’s are a single purpose point product.
Fault Current Indicators are a single purpose product used by utilities to alert them of a fault. By installing FCIs, utilities are only solving only one of their many pain points as they try to get real-time data from their distribution grid to improve reliability. On the other hand, utilities that install LightHouse Sensors can take advantage of many different use cases or applications that improve grid reliability and reduce OpEx.
