With pilot projects being finalized with several North American utilities, the T-FDIR solution delivers:

  • Isolation & restoration ensured within three recloses
  • Easy installation / minimal maintenance
  • Lower SAIDI minutes relative to traditional methods
  • Reduction of lost revenues, labor costs, and regulatory penalties
  • Higher levels of end-user satisfaction
