Aachen, Germany-based devolo AG is developing data communication solutions for the smart grid under this guiding theme.
Powerline uses existing infrastructure, such as the low-voltage level of the mains network, for data communication. Stable, secure and with sufficient capacity reserves for the requirements of the future. This lets energy providers and operators of grids and measuring points benefit from an efficient and future-proof solution.
In addition to its product for data communication, called G3-PLC Modem 500k, devolo is also developing a smart meter gateway for data security and a control box for intelligent management of decentralised power generators and electrical consumers.
Co-operation with renowned German universities expands the research competencies long-term. As a member of G3-PLC Alliance and additional relevant organisations, the company is a major player in designing the standards of IP-based data transmission in the smart grid.
That is the central advantage of devolo. As a successful medium-sized company, devolo focusses on the customer needs first. We work with the customer to develop a tailored solution - whether it is the connection to a customer's IT system or flexible order production without a long lead time using our established and tried-and-tested forecast system.
New production capacities can be set up at our production locations in less than 4 months and expanded nearly without limitation. This means devolo is ideally equipped for the pending rollout.
devolo and its partners for manufacturing and logistics are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 ff. Manufacturing and logistics are certified as well in accordance with the environmental protection standard ISO 14001.
