Critical Power Assets Remote Monitoring
What are Critical Power Assets?
Critical Power Assets are equipment that is used to provide and maintain a steady and reliable electricity supply to industrial, transportation, and residential facilities. These assets typically include Switchgears, Transformers, Cable Distribution Boxes, and Ring Main Units, which are located in special electricity control rooms and substations within these facilities.
Why Remotely Monitor Power Assets?
Prevent Sudden Power Outages and Financial Losses!
Temperature rise related damage accounts for the top 5 reasons why critical power assets fail.
Temperature rise occurs due to loose connections, overloading, and corrosion, which develops over time due to operational wear and tear, and often develops unknowingly to maintenance teams.
Asset failures can lead to sudden power outages at your facility.
Sudden power outages can lead to operational downtime and affect production schedules.
Traditional periodic inspections will not always catch or identify problems.
Problems can develop unknowingly between physical inspection periods.
It is more expensive to fix a power asset after failure than before failure.
Asset Applications up to 60kV:
Ring Main Units
Variable Frequency Drives
Some Industry Applications:
Electricity Transmission & Distribution Assets
Industrial Factories & Facilities.
Oil, Gas, & Chemical Refineries & Storage Facilities.
F&B Plants & Cold Storage Facilities.
Circuit Breaker Temperature Damage
Catastrophic Switchgear Failure

Axzon's RFID, battery free Smart Passive Sensing (SPS) Critical Power Assets temperature / hotspot, monitoring solutions is designed to offer increased monitoring accuracy and reliability, at competitive costs.
Comprising of three main components: RFID Temperature Sensors, Antenna, and Reader, Axzons solutions are designed to accurately monitor power assets for temperature rise and hotspot conditions. As each RFID sensor has its own unique RFID code, and when combined with Axzon's intelligent reader, this system produces highly accurate reading and is not affected by external events such as electrical transients or noise. This allows for a monitoring solution that has no False Positives or False Negatives.
With the advantage of having the widest range of sensor types and sizes in the industry, Axzon sensors can provide monitoring coverage where no other sensing solutions can.

How Does Smart Passive Sensing (SPS) Work?
Given the typically limited shutdown times, Axzon's Critical Power Assets monitoring solutions is designed to be quickly and easily integrated onto new or existing power assets. There are 4 key steps to this process:
Install temperature sensors at required locations (Busbar, Circuit Breaker, etc)
Connect Antenna to the Reader
Power up, and integrate reader to the SCADA interface or Digital Panel Meter.
