Application Spotlight: Distribution Transformer Inspections

Increase Reliability of Distribution Networks

If a transformer overheats and fails, it can be devastating to the utility. A widespread outage might disrupt power to thousands of customers, and the cost to repair or replace equipment is expensive. Regular temperature monitoring using advanced diagnostic thermal imaging cameras can help you easily inspect and monitor the temperature distribution on the outside surface of each transformer to catch impending failures before they occur. It will show you what the naked eye can’t see – hot spots that indicate overheating parts – so you know where to investigate further. Find hidden signs of electrical resistance and mechanical wear so you can begin repairs immediately.
