Why Monitor SF6?
SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride) gas is commonly used as an insulating medium in high-voltage circuit breakers and other electrical equipment. It offers excellent electrical insulation properties and high thermal stability, making it suitable for use in these applications.
Monitoring SF6 gas on a circuit breaker is important for several reasons:
SF6 Monitoring and Diagnostic Solutions
Breaker Performance Monitor
The Breaker Performance Monitor is ideally suited for implementing predictive maintenance, maintenance deferral, condition based maintenance and increased environmental protection from SF6 gas leaks.
This flexible wireless solution for data retrieval allows for integration of third party devices and asset monitors without native ConnectGrid™ connectivity. Once data is available on the ConnectGrid™ platform, the data can be utilized by several applications for visualization and analytics to improve distributed energy management (DERMS) and other advanced distribution management system (ADMS) applications.
DynamicMetrix® is a dashboard visualization tool to manage data from transformers, circuit breakers, switchgear and more. This software helps utilities collect and use condition monitoring information from their high voltage electrical equipment to improve business performance.
