Tuesday 8 October 2019 | 14:59 CET | News
Brazilian utilities company Cemig is working with Inmarsat and OnixSat to improve the performance of its electric grid in Minas Gerais. OnixSat and Inmarsat have developed a system using satellite connectivity to enable Cemig to increase availability and improve its remote controlling of reclosers. It uses a serial/ethernet converter and Inmarsat's BGAN 9502 terminal to connect the reclosers to the satellite operator's L-band satellite network, in order to ensure the effectiveness of the commands issued to the reclosers by Cemig's Centre of Operations.
