New adapters to drive broad deployment of Fischer Block, Inc. Internet of Things (IoT) edge device, enabling optimization of Industrial and Power Utility plant operations by improving power quality and reliability, while minimizing cyber security risks
PHILADELPHIA, PA., July 31, 2017 /Media Newswire/ -- Fischer Block Inc., a leader in providing innovative high-resolution power waveform sensors and asset optimization solutions, today announced the extension of their product line, adding adapters that enable their patented Smart Block edge device to seamlessly connect to over 90% of the Electromechanical Relays deployed in the field today. Fischer Block, Inc. technology also enables the rapid creation of new customized adapters as required by customers. Following more than a year of extensive field trials and testing, Fischer Block, Inc. launched the first release of the Smart Block in April, 2017, with the goal of improving the operations of Industrial and Power Utility customers through transformational power system management and reliability solutions.

"We are proud to announce the addition of new adapters that will extend the applicability of our patented IoT edge device to cover almost any protection relay", stated Fischer Block, Inc. CEO Greg Wolfe. "By extending our connectivity footprint, we are now able to broadly deploy our technology, allowing our customers in both the Utility and Industrial sectors to drive innovative new business processes and maximize the value of Fischer Block, Inc. solutions."

Existing market solutions require months of planning and installation times, at high cost and at high risk. Alternatively, the Fischer Block, Inc. solution is fully non-intrusive and requires no new wiring, so installations can be completed within minutes (instead of months), significantly increasing the number of substations which can be modernized each year.
