Today’s electrical distribution assets are more complex and require a different approach to maintenance. Technology is available today to support data-driven, reliable, and safe condition-based monitoring of these assets that enable companies to recognize safe, effective and profitable outcomes.
- Innovative products and services are available for inspections of energized electrical assets in a closed, guarded and safe condition ensuring personnel are never exposed to the dangers of Arc Flash or electrocution
- Condition based monitoring of critical electrical assets using these reliability strategies can be performed at any time, so asset deterioration can be detected long before it fails completely
- Data Driven procedures using these reliability strategies are performed with minimal disruption to daily facility operations – in contrast to historical time based shutdowns required
