Monitors

From sensors to software, Dynamic Ratings helps utility and industrial customers improve transmission, distribution and substation systems reliability, leading to increased maintenance savings and reduced outages. We design, manufacture and integrate innovative sensors, monitors, and controls for data collection, analysis, and diagnostics. With the use of our asset management tools, our customers realize maximum benefit from on-line transformer and bushing monitoring.

We realize that a successful condition monitoring program must be built on a solid foundation that meets your needs.

E3-and-UI-cover

E Series

The engineered to order E Series product provides a highly configurable hardware platform for utilities who need custom tailored solutions. Our application engineers will work with the utility or the transformer manufacturer to develop the optimal transformer monitoring solution to meet your needs. We will manufacture, program and test the solution following our ISO 9001 certified policies and processes. Our field service team provides field verification of the final installation.

C50

C50 Series

The user configurable C50 series transformer monitor provides accurate control for cooling and voltage control, bushing monitoring, and tap wear as well as incorporating inputs from DGA devices.

Continuous monitoring of operational and performance data of your transformers allows for better utilization and longer life. Dashboard screens assist in configuring the system, as well as downloading and interpreting the information.

B100

B100 Series Electronic Temperature Monitor (ETM)

The reliable and cost effective B100 Electronic Temperature Monitor (ETM) provides exceptional measurement accuracy, asset control and secure communications for your transformer

The B100 features two RTD inputs and three CT inputs, as well as one additional input, 6 digital outputs, 2 analog outputs and a system alarm.

Bushing Monitoring

DM Series

DM Series monitors provide advanced partial discharge and bushing monitoring for transformers. The DM Series also calculates transformer winding hot spot temperature and provides basic cooling control functions.

iBridge

IBridge IED Communications Solution

The iBridge powerline communication system delivers data from any Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) affordably and securely in high noise environment with easy installation. iBridge facilitates Smart Grid initiatives by providing intra-substation communication at a fraction of the cost compared to fiber optic cable. An iBridge network can be the data hub for all your IED or a single communications links into your higher-level network LAN/WAN. iBridge devices are compact and equipped for harsh substation, industrial and data center environments where communications reliability, uptime and ease of installation are required.

Rotating Machine Monitor (RMM)

The RMM provides information as to the health of the stator winding insulation in medium and high voltage motors and generators and can be used on variable frequency drives (VFD). Communications ports include Ethernet, USB and RS-485 with a standard communication protocol using ModBus. DNP-3 is available upon request.

Switchgear and Cable Monitor (SCM)

The SCM Partial Discharge Monitoring System can have up to 60 channels, which makes it a cost effective solution for monitoring large line-ups of switchgear and cable systems. Continuous, on-line monitoring of PD activity, provides the means to detect pending insulation failures that are not present in traditional maintenance practices.

Circuit Breaker and SF6 Gas Monitoring

Dynamic Ratings offers On-Line Circuit Breaker Performance and SF6 Gas Density Monitors. These on-line circuit breaker monitors are ideally suited for implementing predictive maintenance, maintenance deferral, condition based maintenance and increase environmental protection from SF6 gas leaks. These intelligent electronic devices (IED) monitor the condition of the main contacts, mechanism and dielectric; and logs the following information during CB operation:

  • Trip Time (mS) (also known as Opening Time)
  • Arc duration (mS) (phase segregated)
  • Clearing Time (mS) (also known as Interrupting Time)
  • Cumulative I2 x T or I x T on the main contacts (phase segregated) from arcing
  • Restrike Occurrence (phase segregated)
  • Mechanism opening travel time (mS)
  • Mechanism closing travel time (mS)
  • Operation Counts
