Dry Transformers

Protect critical electrical infrastructure with Continuous Thermal Monitoring.

For High Voltage:

  • IR Sensors continuously monitor both ends of each coil
  • IR Sensor also continuously monitor coil tap connections

For Low Voltage:

  • IR Sensors continuously monitor the three phase and neutral

IR Sensors then connect back to the Exertherm Modbus Datcard, which collects and transmits the Sensor temperature data, and activates alarms when a fault is detected.

Benefits

Exertherm® Dry Transformer Solutions provide early warning of potentially compromised assets before they fail and cause an unplanned outage. The Dry Transformer solution alerts personnel to thermal changes in critical electrical assets that the eye can’t see, but may present problems such as failures, or worse, arc flash. This ‘fit and forget’ monitoring technology gives peace of mind that assets are operating at a safe temperature.

Group 2055

Reduce the likelihood of electrical failures and improve operational stability with 24x7 monitoring.

Group 2016

Reduce human interaction with potentially faulty assets to increase personnel and on-site safety.

Group 2015

Reduce electrical fire or explosion risk resulting from arc flash due to compromised electrical assets.

Group 2071

Lower the need for additional costs and the unnecessary intrusion of unplanned maintenance.

Features

The Dry Transformer solution from Exertherm is suitable for both new build and retro-fit installation, and also OEM vendor neutral.

Permanent installation

Permanently installed sensors are fit-and-forget technology that continuously monitors the temperature of critical joints or connections.

Super efficient

This non-contact and non-powered solution creates it's own power supply from within the asset to monitor critical bus and joint connections.

Lifetime guarantee

We're so confident with the resilience built into Exertherm technology that we provide a lifetime guarantee on our sensor hardware.

Real-time data

Once installed our sensors work 24x7, 365 days a year to continuously monitor your critical electrical assets and provide condition data.
