Online DGA Measurement Device
Vaisala presents a new online measurement device for transformer dissolved gas analysis (DGA). The Vaisala Optimusà¢â€ž- DGA Monitor for transformers solves many current problems in transformer maintenance, including no false alarms. It carries an IR sensor based on Vaisala core measurement technology and components manufactured in Vaisala’s in-house cleanroom. It uses vacuum gas extraction, which gives a fully representative sample and means no data fluctuation due to oil temperature, pressure or type. Hermetically sealed and protected optics prevent sensor contamination, and long-term drift is eliminated with a unique autocalibration functionality. The Vaisala Optimus DGA Monitor is designed to be installed in less than two hours-just by connecting the oil, power and communications. Browser-based user interface brings ease of use, as no additional software is needed.
Manhole Event Prevention System
Novinium announced its new PreVentà¢â€ž- Manhole Event Prevention system designed to actively reduce incidents such as manhole fires, smoking and explosions. An estimated 2,000 manhole events occur in the North America each year, or 5.5 per day and the number is increasing as utility infrastructure ages. PreVent is a manhole event suppression solution that actively reduces incidents and protects the public. Active venting removes combustible gases and prevents gas accumulation to improve overall manhole environment. Water control features limit exposure to salt water and debris, and the real-time smart monitoring system uses cloud-based sensors to predict incidents and transmit immediate alerts. Design features include: Ventilated cover is crowned with water dams and air slots to limit water and salt intrusion; Ventilator reaches down into the manhole to better extract combustible gases; Customizable design options fit any size manhole, without the cost of extra rings.
