Exertherm™ Continuous Predictive Thermal Monitoring of Electrical Switchboards - The 'Next' technology step forward from IR windows...

Exertherm™ is a system specifically designed to provide continuous predictive monitoring of mission critical electrical equipment, detecting and identifying hotspot issues and problems before they develop into a major failure...

 

How does it work?

A compromised joint or connection can only be identified by the excess heat it generates. It is essential that excess heat is not confused with heat rise due to increased load or external environmental conditions. Consequently, the Exertherm™ system measures the Delta T (target temperature rise over ambient).

Exertherm™ utilizes small, plastic, infrared, non-contact, non-powered sensors that are installed inside electrical equipment to directly view, and continuously monitor the thermal condition of critical joints in energised electrical equipment. This enables permanent, non-invasive, 24x7 detection of hotspots at an early stage of development; thus avoiding potential downtime resulting from Arc Flash / power outage incidents.

Why do I need it?

Continuous Predictive Thermal Monitoring is now enabling safer, more efficientinspection of energised electrical equipment, ensuring electrical asset integrity. This becomes very clear when we look at the technology comparison when comparing Exertherm to IR windows and thermal imaging.

Where To Monitor?

Unlike IR Windows which are limited in where they can be placed and the view they provide, Exertherm™ provides a comprehensive and complete monitoring solution for either LV or MV applications, that enables the following critical and key connections (including insulated bus) to be monitored simultaneously and in real-time:

  • All AIS circuit breakers – line / load side
  • Bus couplers – line / load side
  • All shipping / transport joints
  • Critical vertical to horizontal bus connections
  • Critical cable connections - typically above 400A (via specialist Exertherm™ Cable sensors)
  • MCC Clamp connections

What Value Does Exertherm Provide?

Increased operator & facility safety Reduces need for intervention maintenanceIncreased operational uptimeReduced risk of fire / explosion resulting from Arc FlashReal-time data = improved critical asset integrity Enhanced protection for critical circuits operating at low load.

Exertherm™ is the next technology step onward from periodic thermal imaging inspections and provides significant & tangible benefits over traditional thermal imaging technology and IR Windows...
