Transformers are key and expensive components of the electrical grid and knowledge of their health condition is essential to having a reliable network.
When a transformer’s insulation system is overstressed, gases are produced that dissolve in the oil. Dissolved
Gas-in-oil Analysis (DGA) is recognized as the best
indicator of developing faults.
The Intellix GLA 100 is a small and intuitive transformer “gas level alarm”. It provides a cost-effective transformer warning solution using DGA, specifically tailored monitoring for less critical transformers that would typically be left unmonitored.
- Entry level price point
- Continually measures H2 fault gas
- 2 gas level alarms, each configurable
- Colored light indicators and relay outputs
- Easy to install on 1 inch valve
- Manual sampling port
Critical Generation and Transmission transformers are typically equipped with fully featured multigas monitoring systems capable of providing real-time diagnostics. As the criticality decreases, the number of fault gases monitored also decreases, moving away from comprehensive monitoring.
The Intellix GLA 100 offers substantial, cost effective monitoring for the over 300,000* significant transformers worldwide that are currently unmonitored. It offers a monitoring solution for important, less critical, less expensive transformers, where the aim is less about protecting the asset and more about avoiding the consequences of an unplanned outage.
