Improved HV Cable Monitoring with OptiFender

Addressing the Critical Need for Improved HV Cable Monitoring High-voltage (HV) and extra-high voltage (EHV) cable systems are vital components of power transmission networks. We rely on their continuous operations daily, and thus, ensuring consistent power supply and minimizing outages is in focus. However, these systems often face failures primarily due to insulation defects in […]

Factory Acceptance Test for Transformers Quicker with OptiFender

PD localization in transformer with OptiFender

Factory acceptance test (FAT) is a crucial phase in transformer manufacturing process. It ensures that each unit meets quality standards before shipment. During one of our webinars, we highlighted the role of OptiFender during IVPD test in a case when PD is detected. We talked about OptiFender’s ability to detect and localize partial discharges (PD) […]

Partial Discharge Monitoring in Power Transformers: Importance

Power transformer on a dark background

At Optics11, partial discharge (PD) monitoring of electrical assets is one of our focus areas. This is why, we offer OptiFender, our innovative partial discharge monitoring system. It allows the business to save money by catching early signs of potential faults and preventing them early. The importance of condition monitoring as a whole, and partial […]
