Power dept introduces advanced feeder box tech
Kolkata: The state Power department has introduced a new technology for strengthening the power distribution system in various parts of South 24-Parganas and other districts, so that faults in the electric supply wires can be identified quickly.
The department has installed feeder boxes equipped with advanced technology in Baruipur and other parts of the district. It will help the staff members of the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL) to locate the electric poles which develop problems.
The Power department had already started using SEEDN technology, enabling the officers to locate the exact area of the fault.
According to sources, the new technology has been equipped with a fault passage indicator that helps the WBSEDCL employees in identifying the electric poles and electric lines which might have developed a problem.
It would immensely help the engineers from the department who earlier had to travel long distances to examine each pole.
Many such feeder boxes have already been installed across the state with more advanced technology.
