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.

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.
