Substation Thermal Camera


The risk of outages is increasing on the electric power grid due to its aging infrastructure and lack of automation systems that monitor the condition of critical equipment at substations and along the grid. Transformer fluid leaks or insulation breakdown cause overheating that is a warning of potential failures, but many utilities don’t have automated thermal detection systems that can help reveal these problems.

Continuous thermal monitoring systems are able to anticipate, detect, and respond rapidly to problems, thereby reducing the chance of failures, outages and lost productivity. Detection of temperature increases in substation equipment with thermal monitoring cameras allows preventative maintenance operations before an unplanned outage occurs due to asset failure.

The Systems With Intelligence thermal monitoring solution includes a substation hardened digital video server (DVS) that digitally records video from multiple cameras and incorporates a suite of sophisticated video and thermal analytic algorithms for detection of anomalies. The DVS includes software tools for video monitoring and analysis, features flexible networking capabilities and provides automated alarm and event notification.

Industrial IoT Sensor Module



The SM500 Industrial IoT Sensor Module monitors and collects asset health data from remote sites. By connecting simultaneously to multiple sensors via Modbus, it is the perfect tool for preventive and predictive maintenance. Data analytics detect anomalies and provide automatic warnings. 

The SM500 can enable flood warning and other safety, environmental and quality monitoring with externally connected sensors. Signals are transmitted securely from the device to a dashboard on a phone, laptop or other platform. Remote updates ensure the firmware is current as well as enabling customization of the devices.


•  Collect data from 64 different parameters from up to 32 different sensing devices via Modbus
•  Secure cellullar connection to IoT Cloud
•  I/O connections enable external sensors
•  Low power consumption
•  Optional connection to SCADA/GIS and asset management applications
