Next: How it works

How it works
How does Guardian Monitoring® keep your transformer reliable?
DETECT
Our transformer monitors work around the clock to provide you data that is accurate beyond industry standards.
ANALYZE
The monitor sends that data to your Transformer Dashboard® and to our engineering team. Any deviation from the norm is flagged for review.
DIAGNOSE
If we find an imminent threat to your system, we will contact you immediately. Expect clear options and no false alarms.
ACT
Armed with detailed data and insight from
SDMyers, you’ll know what steps to take
to keep your operation running with the
least amount of downtime possible.

IMMEDIATE ALERTS ON CRITICAL TRANSFORMER FAULTS

Guardian Monitoring® with G1

GASES DETECTED

HYDROGEN

Hydrogen accompanies most known transformer faults, which makes this single-gas monitor an excellent indicator of serious incipient faults.

If the monitor detects a significant spike in H2, we can determine the specifics of the fault with further on-site testing.

DIAGNOSE CRITICAL TRANSFORMER
FAULTS AS THEY HAPPEN

Guardian Monitoring® with G5

GASES DETECTED

This five-gas monitor’s capability to detect methane, ethylene, and acetylene allows us to use industry-standard analytical tools to diagnose faults.

HYDROGEN
METHANE
ETHYLENE
ACETYLENE
CARBON MONOXIDE

Carbon monoxide can indicate degradation of the paper insulation.

ETHANE
OXYGEN
CARBON DIOXIDE
NITROGEN

A nine-gas monitor samples and measures all gases needed for a full DGA and provides information on specific sub-faults. Elevated levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are good indicators of cellulose degradation.
