Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is the expected ROI:

Typical ROI, due to costs reduction and efficient infrastructure utilization is 2.5 years. For example:
Meta-Alert™ system enables reduction of electricity loses in the grid by 20% to 40%.
Meta-Alert™ system creates significant expenses saving by moving from breakage or preventive maintenance to proactive maintenance.

What can Meta-Alert system detect?

Current cutoff
Short circuit to ground / between cables
Current overload/under-load
Current frequency deviation
Unbalanced current phases
Contamination over power line (e.g. insulator)
Cable disconnect
Electricity and cable theft warning

Are there any voltage limitations?

No. The system can work in any combination of current and AC voltage. There are different sensors for diverse current or voltage levels, enable to deal with variety of grid characteristics. 

Can it identify electricity theft?

Yes. As a self-learning system, Meta-Alert™ immediately identifies any irregularities, including unexpected and unusual current consumption. Theft is characterized by either direct connection to the distribution line or bypassing meters.

In case of direct connection, the system immediately alerts that unrecognized electricity consumption is occurring, and the exact location.
In the case of bypassing of meters, the system enables the comparison between consumption and metered current at any line segment, triggering an alert.
