  • Stability event monitors with very long pre- & post- synchrowave capturing

Data visualisation without equal

VECTO Grid OS is the interface, offering an easy to use, flexible platform for data analysis and real time grid management.  

Distributed processing power for edge computing at the point of measurement

The VECTO 3 is CT LAB’s flagship device, a Class-A edge computer that is installed at nodes throughout the grid, delivering harmonised data analysis of over 9,000 electrical parameters.
