Bus Duct Monitoring Solution

BDMS-heated-section-with-sensor-1 copy 3

Build resilience into power distribution systems

The Bus Duct Monitoring Solution matches the modularity of bus duct for electrical power distribution. It's quick and easy to install, and just as versatile.

The solution gives users a call-to-action on a specific bus bar or bus duct joint which is potentially faulty and needs attention before a more serious problem occurs.

Continuous monitoring of these electrical joints provides a 24x7 early warning system to detect critical temperature rise and reduce the risk of power loss.

Benefits

Group 2039

Save money

Reduce CAPEX and OPEX by eliminating the need for thermographic inspection at the installation stage. Operators will also save by avoiding the cost of unplanned electrical outages.

Group 2251

Enhance safety

Improve personnel safety across your facility by minimizing the need for staff interaction with faulty, compromised, or potentially dangerous electrical assets. 

Group

Increase efficiency

Build in greater resilience by protecting your operation against the inconvenience of unplanned downtime, and the risk of failing to deliver on end customer requirements.
