NovaTech Hosts Informative Symposium for PPL Managers and Engineers

On October 23, 2019, NovaTech hosted an Electric Utilities Symposium at PPL’s Walbert Training Center in Allentown, PA. This event was a part of PPL’s Vendors and Technology program, introducing PPL employees to NovaTech and its products and services. The Symposium was also an opportunity for NovaTech to provide PPL employees, already familiar with our products, an update on new Orion and Bitronics products.

NovaTech took the opportunity to show experienced PPL Orion users some of the new features and functionality enhancements included with a recent release of NovaTech Configuration Director (NCD). NovaTech also showcased: Orion Redundancy, the new OrionLX+, OrionLXm with unmanaged switch, and the upcoming small-platform OrionMX. In addition, attendees were educated on the Bitronics Distribution Grid Monitor and D650 Master Display.

Mark Matassa, NovaTech Northeast Regional Sales Manager notes, “the event demonstrated a true partnership between PPL and NovaTech. For over thirty-five busy PPL Managers, Engineers, and Technicians and multiple members of NovaTech’s Management, Sales, and Engineering teams to take time out of their schedules to attend this event proves the commitment between these two companies.”

In addition to NovaTech, Chris Jarrah and Tim D’Emidio of PPL presented how PPL is utilizing Orions and Bitronics to satisfy automation requirements in their Transmission and Distribution Systems (respectively).
