A TXpert™ Enabled distribution transformer is an essential component of the TXpert™ Ecosystem.
It is equipped with an array of TXpert™ Ready sensors that collate data which is then utilized by the TXpert™ Hub to deliver actionable intelligence by providing valuable information on how the transformer and grid are operating.
As an open system, TXpert supports new and existing distribution transformers from Hitachi ABB Power Grids as well as other manufacturers. It is available for both, liquid-filled and dry-type transformers.
TXpert Enabled Transformers can come with built-in capabilities from the factory or existing, installed transformers can be upgraded with the TXpert technology.
