Altus goes to the USA to attend the IEEE PES T&D 2022

Altus goes to the USA to attend the IEEE PES T&D 2022

With the capacity to produce around 4,300 Giga Watts per hour, the US power market is the second largest in the world. It is natural that one of the largest international fairs within the sector takes place in the country and that Altus, as one of the main technology providers for the energy sector in Latin America, attends to it. Between April 25th and 28th, we will be in New Orleans, USA, presenting our solutions in connectivity for IoT applications at IEEE PES T&D.

The main highlight will be the novelties designed for the Nexto Series PLCs, products used in the Brazilian main hydroelectric plants. With high processing speed, advanced real-time diagnostics and support for network redundancy, Nexto programmable controllers deliver security and high availability. The products can be used in the acquisition and transmission of signals between the generating units and other devices that are part of the application.

In addition to the rugged Nexto Series products, the company will also present the Nexto Xpress IoT ready PLC solution. With different embedded communication interfaces and support for a wide variety of communication protocols, Altus compact controllers can be used as IoT gateways for small applications. Among its many 4.0 functionalities, Xpress products can, for example, collect production data from a field application through a MODBUS TCP network and send it via OPC UA or MQTT to a supervisory system hosted in the cloud.

Altus, Beijer and the North American market

This year, in addition to interacting with Altus specialists and learning about the news regarding its products, visitors who pass by the company`s booth will also be able to talk to Beijer Electronics` business engineers. Main partner in the foreign market, the company applies and distributes Altus programmable controller technology in different countries from Europe, Asia and North America. In order to enhance and strengthen this relationship, which has lasted nearly 15 years, specialists from the company`s North American unit were invited to share Altus` space at the fair.

Attending to Distributech is part of Altus` international expansion plan. With UL and cUL certification, Nexto family products comply with the safety standards of Underwriters Laboratories. These certifications are a mandatory requirement for the equipment to be exported to the United States and Canada, which allows the company to explore the northern hemisphere and reinforces Nexto`s concept as a world-class product.

Come to visit us at IEEE PES T&D 2022 and be amazed by our technology. The event will take place at the Ernest Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Altus space will be on booth 9 of the Brazil Pavilion.

More trade fairs in North America

In addition to the IEEE, we will also participate in the NAB Show, one of North America`s largest innovation and technology transformation events. During the event, which will take place between April 23 and 27, in Las Vegas, we will also present our solutions in control and connectivity for IoT applications. The exhibition will also be an opportunity to check the news of the North American and world technology market.
