NEWLY DEVELOPED CIRCUIT BREAKER MONITOR GETS US R&D AWARD

28.11.2016
A newly developed Circuit Breaker Performance Monitor and Data Acquisition System won a R&D Award for its ability to grant access to real-time information and ultimately reduce SF6 emissions.
The monitor should allow major overhauls to take place every 18 years instead of 9, and to identify SF6 leaks sooner, which would allow a planned outage rather than a forced one.
