For Ultrasound Port Inspections
The SONUS PD is specifically designed for Partial Discharge (PD) and Airborne Emission (AE) detection on Medium and High Voltage Switchgear. The unit detects Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) signals generated by internal partial discharge as well as ultrasound acoustic discharge generated by surface tracking, arcing or corona. PD detection can be utilized to detect early warning signs of equipment insulation failure. Inspections can be performed quickly and safely by maintenance personnel with minimal training. Fast and accurate diagnosis of problems using the SONUS PD will help you prevent unexpected outages.
Versatility of TEV and Ultrasound Detection in One Unit
With the ability of the unit to detect either TEV (Transient Earth Voltage) or AE (Airborne Emission), the Sonus PD is ideal for use in facilities with higher voltages. The TEV feature is an effective tool for detection of defects and micro voids in insulation that yield partial discharge while the AE feature allows for the detection of Corona, Treeing (Tracking), Arcing and Loose Connections in electrical gear.
Built-In Bluetooth Functionality
The SONUS PD is unique in PD detection by using a built-in Bluetooth module which allows the SONUS PD to connect with an Android smartphone running the SONUS PD App. The SONUS PD will automatically connect to a smartphone once it receives a Bluetooth connection request. The user may then take and store readings in real time. For clients with concerns about security of blue-tooth connections, a version of the SONUS PD is available without blue-tooth connectivity.
Compatible With All IRISS PDS and VPDS Ports
Perform ultrasound electrical inspections with more accuracy than scanning a seam of a cabinet by having direct access into the cabinet interior. PDS and VPDS ports allow the Sonus PD to safely scan from the outside of the cabinet and not lose any of the signal due to diffraction.
Sonus PD App
The SONUS PD App unlocks additional functions with the SONUS PD Instrument. Once the unit and App have been paired, the SONUS PD will display a Bluetooth Symbol and all readings and monitoring functionality will transfer to the SONUS PD App on your smartphone. With the SONUS PD App, all data collected can also be transferred to a customer specific secure cloud database for further analysis and histogram trending.Click Here to download the app now!
The built-in speaker allows the user to use SONUS PD without the headphone in quieter areas of the plant, making for a more comfortable day of testing.
