The Golden Number of Fire Mitigation
Every year, the top three causes of wildfires are Lightning, People and Power Assets, and whilst the electricity grid only accounts for a small percentage of these ignitions, they overwhelmingly account for the largest loss of life and property, in a paradox still under investigation by top researchers such as the CSIRO.

Thriving in High Temperature Environments
Designing protection and control electronics to survive its service life in a pole-mount application is no simple feat. Overhead distribution switchgear suffers the full ferocity of the midday sun and the equipment resilience to handling these high temperature environments is thoroughly tested.

Innovating Safety into Switchgear Interrogation
Electricity distribution operators and technicians conduct their work in among the most naturally hazardous environments. Whilst improvements in workplace health and safety, training and culture abound, opportunities to improve the safety of operators from a technical mitigation standpoint can provide further guard rails for gaps in primary tactics.

Addressing Cybersecurity in Distribution Network SCADA Systems
For the electricity distribution grid operator, for much time the control systems of the grid were protected by “Security by Obscurity”. The SCADA protocols and communications infrastructure that was (and in most cases still is) used to control the electricity distribution grid is based on essentially insecure protocols with no inherent design to handle the threat of adverse action by internal players or third parties.
