LumaSense Technologies Inc. has introduced a new category of dissolved-gas analysis monitors that allow electric utilities to more effectively reduce outages caused by faulty load tap changers (LTCs) and transformers. At a cost significantly less expensive than comparable DGA monitors and a unique hardware design that drastically cuts down installation time, the LumaSense SmartDGA platform can help utilities achieve widespread condition monitoring across generation, transmission and distribution assets.
Whereas other systems take days to install, a SmartDGA monitor can be installed in a matter of hours. Additionally, SmartDGA monitors will cost up to 50% less than other monitors. The first monitor in the new line, the SmartDGA Gauge, will be the industry's first dedicated online gas monitor for LTCs.
SmartDGA Gauge is the newest addition to LumaSense's line of solutions designed to provide utilities more information about how their transformers are functioning. LumaSense also provides a range of fiber-optic temperature sensors used to monitor winding hot spots and continuous thermal imaging systems that remotely monitor substations.
