Hillsboro, OR, Nov. 16, 2005 — Serveron Corp., a company specializing in asset condition assessment and management tools for the electric utility industry, announced the introduction of the Serveron transformer monitor Model TM3, the latest addition to the Serveron series of on-line transformer monitors.
Serveron’s Model TM3 is a system boasts accurate, repeatable on-line transformer oil dissolved gas analysis (DGA) of 3 critical fault gases as well as oil temperature, ambient temperature and moisture in oil measurements all correlated with transformer load. It provides the diagnostic information electric utilities need to maintain the reliability of their transformer fleet.
Prior to the availability of the Serveron transformer monitor Model TM3, on-line monitoring was focused on only the most critical transformers in the grid. There are many other transformers in electric utility fleets that merit on-line monitoring but the investment required couldn’t be justified. Serveron says their on-line transformer monitor Model TM3 delivers the most cost effective transformer condition identification and alert system available.
The Serveron Transformer Monitor also offers a suite of software tools to download, analyze and display the information where and when it is needed. A variety of communication interfaces and protocols facilitates integration into existing utility systems. The Serveron transformer monitor Model TM3 will ship in the first quarter of 2006.
