Hardware and software solutions are available to install a working ASTROSE monitoring system. These were designed with the objectives of ampacity optimization, ice warning, and risk detection in mind. The illustration shows how the different components in the system work together. The equipment and services are provided in partnership by the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and the LTB Leitungsbau GmbH.
The ASTROSE wireless sensor nodes are the heart and soul of the ASTROSE basic package. The individual components can be used to monitor one grid section, such as the line between two pylons.
