Actionable data

Meaningful Insights from Your Infrastructure

When sensors detect a change on a critical asset, operators can react quickly to re-balance or replace the asset before any damage is done. Say goodbye to emergency response units arriving to avert a catastrophe. Systems remain online and running smoothly.

Featured use case

Smart Substation Monitoring

Disruptive Technologies wireless sensors enable monitoring of critical functions in a substation without planning for any downtime during the installation. Monitoring is achieved by placing our small and robust wireless sensors on strategic components within the substation.


Door Security

Monitor if the main door is left open or not.


Transformer Temperature

Monitor the temperature of the transformer core.


Substation Humidity

Measure the humidity and temperature of the room.


Transformers Lines

Measure temperature individual high and low voltage phases.


Water Detection

Detect if there is water on the floor or if the water level is critical.


Pole-Mounted Transformers

Cloud Connector mounted in a weather-proof enclosure.


Outside Temperature

Measure the outside temperature of the substation for reference.


Cables & Joints

Measure temperature on output power lines.

Sensors - Small ingenious sensors for humidity, temperature, water detection, door status, transformer temperature and core remote monitoring of your assets.


Cloud Connector - Our cloud connector gathers sensor data and transfers it to our cloud or a partner cloud. A plug and play gateway.


DT Cloud & API - View and manage data via our software, one of many partner portals, or a custom integration through our API.

Built for truly industrial scale

Fixing the Issues with Today's IoT Solutions

Disruptive Technologies was founded to address the shortcomings of current sensing solutions. Leave cumbersome hardware and inflexible software behind. Perceive more with fewer interruptions and see sensor data immediately.


Sensor size

At 19 x 19 x 2.5mm, our sensors can be placed on almost anything using industrial-grade adhesive. They have a robust design with an IP68 rating (water & dustproof).


Low cost

The low cost of our solution makes it economically feasible to continuously monitor equipment on a whole new scale.



There is no need for configurations during installation. Plug in the Cloud Connector and you’re ready to go.


End-to-end encryption

All data is encrypted, from the sensor to the cloud. Best in class scores from 3rd party security reviews.


Battery life

Our custom-designed chip technology enables us to deliver a battery life of up to 15 years in a normal environment.


Open API

Data is readily available for download or streaming to any analytics platform via a powerful REST API.

Retrofitting the Transmission Grid with Low-cost Sensors

Read at Statnett

“The new data has thus not only helped discovered an incipient failure in a critical component, it also allows us to keep operating the substation in a safe and controlled way while we are waiting for an opportunity to repair or replace the troublesome components.”

- Boye Annfelt Høverstad, Head of Data Science at Statnett
