Applications for the NHDS product range in the Utilities market are across all sectors: power distribution; gas distribution; water supply and wastewater treatment.
NHDS Messenger units have been supplied to a number of Regional
electricity companies. As part of the new OFGEM IIP (Information
and Incentives Project) all interruptions to customers’ supplies must
be counted and reported. Messenger monitors the Auxiliary Contacts of
