IMPROVING SAFETY ON ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT

July 13, 2014

Improving safetyMES Engineered Solutions has been a leader in providing electrical systems with enhanced safety features. After introducing Arc Quenchinh Systems and Arc Reduction Maintenance Systems (ARMS), MES is going a step forward by introducing ThermoObservation RFID (TOR) systems in Main Electrical Distribution Boards and Motor Control Centers.

The first TOR system has successfully been delivered to Spanish paper factory ENCE, located al Navia (Asturias). Paper production is a continuous process that requires maximum availability and reliability of the electrical equipment.

TOR is a system that continuously monitors temperatures in critical points inside electrical switchboards, thus substituting and dramatically improving conventional thermography. Data is recorded and can be sent as warning alarms to computers, tablets or mobile phones. This way manner preventive maintenance becomes a reality, reducing the chances of having to deal with one of the most common electrical failure causes: hot spots.
