ABB Ability™ Wireless Monitor for surge arrester

Wireless Monitor is a remote condition monitoring solution that makes predictive maintenance of surge arresters possible.

ABB AbilityTM Wireless Monitor for surge arrester is a device enabled for the Internet of Things (IoT). It measures overvoltage discharge current and leakage current and communicates this via a low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) that allows customers to make informed decisions that reduce substation and grid downtime, increase grid reliability and reduce maintenance costs. It enables continuous diagnosis of the equipment in service, record-keeping of historical data of performance parameters, trend analysis of events, and suggesting necessary corrective action to keep the equipment working effectively.
