VIO Link

Our world-leading high-speed Metering & Control Device

As a modular IoT metering and control system, VIO Link provides automatic monitoring of electric grid health for the delivery of high-speed frequency response system services.

VIO Link Power Meter produces high-resolution and high-accuracy frequency data and works in conjunction with Relay module to deliver a response to a frequency disturbance on the grid in less than 100 milliseconds. The advanced Multi-Constellation Satellite timing implemented in the system means that frequency and power readings across a portfolio of devices can be easily combined to give a comprehensive picture of the grid state and an accurate measurement of availability and response.

The system has built-in algorithms monitoring device health and implemented procedures for self-recovery in the rare case of a fault. The Gateway module enables secure connectivity through Wi-Fi, LTE and Ethernet. This facilitates installations across a large range of site types and locations. The VIO Link was developed based on our extensive experience in using commercially available solutions and understanding the limitations that such solutions had in operating in the newer Fast Frequency Ancillary Services being introduced to facilitate higher non-synchronous generation.
