Joslyn Hi-Voltage has introduced the SmartLink 5000 series, an integrated cellular remote terminal unit providing two-way communications with Fisher Pierce overhead radio faulted circuit indicators (FCIs).

The 5000 RTU can report fault alarms from up to four FCIs (A, B, C phase and tap) using local RF signals. Status, alarms and other event notifications can be integrated into SCADA systems as well as sent to customer-designated personnel via email, pager or text message. Having precise fault information can reduce outage duration, improve system reliability, and lower operation costs.
