A constant struggle you face as a manufacturer is how to avoid unexpected downtime. To stay ahead of potential faults, you must look to preventative maintenance. Hot spots, a leading contributor to downtime are known to cause outages, service interruptions and equipment failure, but are difficult to detect. So how do you prevent them and get ahead of them?
Physical inspections can be high risk, resulting in inaccurate or unobtainable data and can compromise equipment integrity. Infrared Technology, while a safer option, has its limitations when the field of view is restricted. GraceSense has developed a different method that might be worth some consideration.
The new GraceSense™ Hot Spot Monitor (HSM) uses fiber optic technology to provide continuous temperature monitoring and is ideal for difficult or hazardous locations. The HSM identifies potential failure points before they happen, keeping your plant up and running. It can be deployed into any electrical system whether low, medium or high voltage.
