Sensors and Accessories

Dynamic Ratings offers a wide variety of sensors to monitor the condition of electrical apparatus. We have patented designs, and manufacture our line of sensors to ensure that the highest quality and accuracy requirements are consistently achieved. These sensors and accessories convert the measured properties into a signal readily used by a transducer or an intelligent device such as a Dynamic Ratings Monitoring System.

Our sensors are designed to be highly sensitive and accurate to meet the needs of our customer’s applications. DR sensors and accessories exceed industry standards for quality and performance coupled with ease of installation.

Bushing Sensors

Bushing Sensors are typically applied to bushings on power transformers and high voltage current transformers. The sensors provide both high frequency signal detection for partial discharge detection and low frequency detection for bushing monitoring.

Partial Discharge

Coupling Capacitors

Coupling Capacitors are a versatile partial discharge sensor commonly used to detect PD in many applications including generators, switchgear, motors, isolated phase bus (IPB) and power transformers. We offer three voltage levels: 8, 16, and 28 kV.

DRPD-15 Portable Partial Discharge Analyzer

The DRPD-15 is a portable partial discharge analyzer featuring fifteen independent, highly sensitive, user configurable input channels delivering the industry’s best signal-to-noise ratio and allowing connection to any brand of partial discharge sensor. The analyzer has the ability to store test results from multiple objects for uploading and further analysis, without the need for gain adjustments. The DRPD-15 is applicable to system voltages ranging from 2.3 to 800kV.

GIC-4-lolipop

Geomagnetic Induced Current Sensor (GIC)

The substation hardened GIC-4 sensor is offered in fixed, split, and dual sensing cabinet packaging specifically designed for the measurement of geomagnetic induced currents in the transformer neutral ground connection. Split core models allow for rapid installation in energized applications.

MMTS-Applications

Magnetic Mount Temperature Sensors (MMTS)

Magnetic Mount Temperature Sensors are designed to provide an easy method for measuring transformer top oil, bottom oil, or load tap changer tank temperatures. They are designed to be highly accurate and reliable while providing a variety of sensor outputs and terminal options to accommodate the user requirements.

rog-coil

Rogowski Coils

Rogowski Coils complement the bushing sensors to provide a directionally sensitive indication of PD activity, allowing the monitoring equipment to recognize the difference between internal PD sources and externally generated signals.

RFCT-2L

Radio Frequency Current Transformers (RFCT)

RFCTs measure PD in the ground circuits of a variety of electrical equipment. RFCTs are typically applied to grounded cable shields and the neutral connection on a large power transformer.

RTD-Module

RTD Modules

RTD Modules utilize existing RTDs embedded within the windings of rotating equipment to provide additional winding coverage.
