Typically, employees have to check cable conditions by hand. Most rely on thermal cameras and perform irregular spot checks. With smart sensors, power companies can now easily monitor critical assets at scale.
When sensors detect a temperature change on a critical asset, operators see a spike in their dashboard. They can react quickly to rebalance or replace the asset before any damage is done.

You won’t need to shut down all or part of a substation to install Disruptive sensors. Wireless mini-sensors stick on cables, pipes, high voltage fuses, and any difficult-to-reach places with small surface areas. They’re easy to install and easy to maintain.
Elvia sees a future in which all substations are digitalized. They’ve received support from CINELDI, one of Europe’s largest research centers for intelligent electricity distribution, to expand the use of sensor technology as part of their grid modernization efforts.Case study
