IUS Technologies unveiled distribution transformer monitors the TM1000 and TM2000 from the floor of DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition, the leading power transmission and distribution event in the U.S.
Using carbon nanotube technology, this new set of monitors combines total combustible gas (TGS), temperature and load monitoring readings to provide real-time notification for single and three phase distribution transformers.
The newest additions to the Born Smart line of smart grid sensing devices by IUS Technologies, TM1000 and TM2000 introduce an accuracy rating of 0.2 percent to remote transformer monitoring, providing a complete view of equipment health outside regularly planned manual inspection periods. Utilities that implement these devices can expect to see reduced transformer maintenance costs and optimized asset lifecycles.
Establishing baseline readings for any transformer, TM1000 and TM2000 are equipped to immediately detect normal, abnormal, cautious or dangerous conditions and send alert messages either when predetermined conditions are met or supply a constant stream of information. Seamless integration with the entire Born Smart series of sensors enables utilities, co-ops and municipalities to make these monitors part of a comprehensive smart grid solution.
