SAS Grid Guardian AI

Achieve unparalleled distribution grid reliability and service levels using innovative mobile IoT sensors, AI and advanced analytics.

Eliminate overhead equipment failures. Prioritize maintenance plans. Achieve unmatched safety, reliability and uptime with a solution that could pay for itself in less than a year.

Prevent unplanned loss of service, collateral damage to equipment and added safety risks to workers.

SAS Grid Guardian AI – a first-of-its-kind solution from SAS and partner Exacter – complements your existing asset performance management approach with patented edge-computing sensing technology and advanced analytics focused on RF emissions from equipment. The solution uses AI and machine learning to analyze these emissions, so you can better understand which types of equipment failures are most likely to occur and prioritize maintenance plans for safety, reliability and uptime.

Reduce operations and maintenance costs.

SAS Grid Guardian AI automatically associates collected data with relevant assets while sensors are on the move, increasing throughput and saving time and money. This reduces interruptions and allows you to act faster – and earlier – to any issues in your distribution grid infrastructure.

Improve reliability metrics.

SAS Grid Guardian AI helps you understand where power delivery system weaknesses are so you can direct capital expenditures where they will have the biggest impact. This helps prevent outages; improves SAIFI, SAIDI and CAIDI values; and reduces the risks of reportable OSHA events.
