Monitor critical bus bar and joint connections in medium voltage switchgear

Electrical failures are caused by a number of different factors, including:

icon-q

The effects of constant thermal cycling on the joints

icon-q

Corrosion of the metal components damaging insulation

icon-q

Assets aging, mechanical damage, or environmental factors

icon-q

Intrusion and human error as a result of maintenance processes

Protect electrical infrastructure with continuous thermal monitoring sensors

Continuous thermal monitoring technology enables critical MV switchgear joints and busbar connections to be monitored in real-time.

Thermal monitoring locations include:

  • IR Sensors monitor Main Incomer Breakers, line and load side
  • IR Sensors monitor ACB Feeders, line and load side

Benefits

The Exertherm® Medium-Voltage Switchgear Solution provides an early warning of potentially compromised LV assets before they fail, causing unplanned facility outages. The MV switchgear solution provides protection from thermal asset changes where the eye can’t see and the hands can't reach. Our unique ‘fit and forget’ 24x7 electrical infrastructure monitoring technology gives you the peace of mind that your assets are running safely.

Group 2322

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

Group 2324-1

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

Group 2323

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

Group 2325-1

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

Features

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

Permanent installation

Permanently installed sensors for MV Switchgear mean you can fit and forget, only needing to return when a potential issue is flagged up.

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.
