RAM-1: Remote monitoring of smart power grids with cellular IoT- and Bluetooth LE-powered device
Author: IRNAS & Nordic Semiconductor
For Izoelektro, a Slovenian company providing products intended for maintenance, renewal and set up of electro-energy systems, we are developing RAM-1, a cellular IoT- and BLE-powered remote monitoring device, allowing power grid operators to remotely monitor smart power grids and thus take immediate action in cases of failures.
To provide RAM-1 with wireless connectivity, we have selected Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF9160 low power SiP with integrated LTE-M/NB-IoT modem and GPS, in combination with the nRF52811 Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE, BLE) multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC).
As the nRF Connect SDK offers support for the Zephyr RTOS ecosystem, and we are aiming at creating a robust end-to-end solution, the nRF9160 was a logical pick.
