Project

Transformers are a critical and expensive component of power systems. Due to the long lead time for repair of and replacement of transformers, a major goal of transformer protection is limiting the damage to a faulted transformer. Some protection functions, such as over excitation protection and temperature-based protection may aid this goal by identifying operating conditions that may cause transformer failure.

Aim

The risk of Overheat and/or Fire conditions on Power Transformers and Generators remain high – even where regular maintenance programmes are operated and where shielding, grounding and lightning arrestor devices are installed. We were tasked with providing a solution for easy temperature checking.

Solution

One of the longest-established power companies in the world, providing an efficient and reliable electricity supply to its half a million customers, use Thermax Irreversible temperature labels on the outer tank casing of the transformer to enable easy and reliable temperature checks.

Medical Devices Case Study: ShockWatch RFID

Impact indicators have long been used to monitor medical equipment in transit. However, an RFID enabled impact indicator is just as valuable after medical devices are in service. The RFID will alert teams to possible damage due to impact as well as track equipment in use, lowering the loss of due to misplaced or stolen devices. read more
