Thermal Monitoring of Medium Voltage (MV) Substations


This application provides remote, continuous monitoring of the thermal conditions of MV substations equipped with Easergy TH110 temperature sensors and Easergy CL110 environmental sensors. Thermal monitoring can help you find exceptional conditions in the substation equipment, such as overloads or faulty power connections of cables, busbars, circuit breakers, or transformers. In addition, this application can monitor the environmental conditions, ambient temperature and humidity, inside the substation and switchgear cubicles. You can see temperature data in real-time, analyze historical trends, and receive alarms and notifications. Any applicable PME power monitoring features can be used with the substation monitoring data.

For more information on the value of Continuous Thermal Monitoring see the EcoStruxure Power Digital Applications for Large Buildings & Critical Facilities Design Guide. See Resources for download information.
