Special versions are available for particular use cases:
The stationary ASTROSE wireless base station usually comes integrated in the receiver antenna. It receives the monitoring data from the sensor nodes and forwards them to the ASTROSE server, usually via an LWL connection.
The mobile base station (see image) was designed with flexible use with a laptop in the field in mind.
The ASTROSE server stores and manages the incoming datasets. The server typically uses industry-grade PC hardware without active fans, preferably for top-hat rail mounting.
All monitoring data received from the sensor nodes are captured and stored in a central database that forms an integral part of the ASTROSE software. A modern GUI offers efficient filters and formats for visualizing different datasets.
The internal online analysis of incoming monitoring data allows the immediate detection of any disruptions in the power grid. In the case of significant incidents, the system automatically notifies the operator.
The IEC 60870 protocol helps feed the monitoring data directly into the grid operator’s control systems.
