LumaSense Technologies, Inc.will exhibit its suite of products that are designed to allow customers to continuously monitor the condition of Substation Assets, such as Transformers and LTCs, at the 2015 International Conference of Doble Clients, the world’s premier conference for the electric power industry in Boston, MA, March 22-27th.
Intelligent sensors connected to software platforms that gather, visualize, and analyze data can help energy producers extend the life of aging assets and ensure the power keeps flowing. The average transformer in the United States is more than 40 years old. A growing number of utilities are using technologies like online dissolved gas analysis systems to monitor transformer health. Other devices, including fiber optics, pyrometers, and infrared cameras, are critical elements in ascertaining the condition of electric utility assets.
On Tuesday, March 24th at 6:00pm, Jeff Golarz (LumaSense Director of T&D Solutions), as well as LumaSense’s experts, Richard McQuiggan (NorthEast Sales Manager) and Gregor Hsiao (Director, Product Solutions) will be on-site to talk to future customers and explain how LumaSense is currently helping the growing number of utilities control their assets. This team will provide interactive demonstrations of the following LumaSense products:
The SmartDGA® System is a cost-effective online monitoring solution based on proven, state-of-the-art non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology. This suite of products is designed to allow customers to continuously monitor the condition of external tank LTC’s and transformers. The NDIR technology has been shipped in over 400,000 instruments to various world-wide customers over the past 25 years.
The LumaSMART® Fluoroptic Thermometry Fiber Optic Temperature Sensing System for Winding Hot Spots is the most advanced and reliable real-time monitoring solution available today. With more than 30 years of fiber optic experience, LumaSense is the leader in Fluoroptic (FOT) Technology, with decades of proven expertise. Monitoring the transformer winding hot spot is critical to safeguard your transformer from damage and extend its usage.
The LumaSHIELD® GaAs-Based Fiber Optic Temperature Solution for Winding Hot Spots is a highly cost-effective alternative to LumaSense’s Flouroptic System, based on field-proven Gallium Arsenide (GasAs) crystal technology used in transformers since the 1990’s. The LumaSHIELD’s direct, real-time temperature measurement addresses the critical issues encountered by transformer and electric utility managers.
The SF6 Leak Measurement Solution System is a state-of-the-art solution to major GIS manufacturers for quantitative leak acceptance tests in closed chambers, or for monitoring SF6 handling facilities. Early leak detection creates savings for enclosed GIS substations’ owners who face increasingly stringent industry regulations on SF6 emissions.
The LumaSpection for Substations: TS724DV is an automated, continuous thermal and visual imaging system used to identify thermal abnormalities within electrical substations and other process control systems.
