Innovative Solutions for Transmission & Distribution

LumaSense delivers many innovative temperature and gas sensing instruments for monitoring transmission and distribution assets. From gas monitoring with Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) and Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technologies or temperature monitoring with infrared and fiber optics, our broad range of technology expertise allows us to offer industry professionals opportunities to implement cost-effective online monitoring solutions to manage and maintain equipment.

  • Transformer Winding Hot Spot Monitoring – More than 40 years ago, LumaSense pioneered the field of fiber optic winding hot spot measurements with Fluoroptic® technology. Monitoring with fiber optics enables operators to accurately measure the actual hot spot temperature in real-time.
  • Transformer and LTC DGA Monitoring – With NDIR-based instruments, operators can perform automated, remote dissolved gas analysis to detect key fault gases and perform analysis on the condition of the transformer or load tap changer.
  • Substation Asset Monitoring – Infrared tools such as thermal imagers and pyrometers enable utilities to remotely monitor specific connections and assets such as transformers, bushings, and capacitor banks in real-time.
  • SF6 Leak Detection – Using PAS for SF6 leak detection creates a highly accurate, sensitive, and reliable solution to limit the emissions of insulating gas found in switchgears.

Using Tracer Gas to Analyze Ventilation Performance

Engineers and building professionals often need to balance energy efficiency with optimized air quality. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems found in various industries such as hospitals, laboratories, and passenger cabins, often need to perform to specific standards with targeted air exchange rates. Professionals can determine the appropriate air exchange rate using tracer gas.
