We are previewing the revolutionary CableGuardian at Infrarail 2018, our comprehensive electrical network condition monitoring and fault finding system with a difference. CableGuardian monitors both cable and conductor condition within a power distribution network by dispersing multiple independent measurement units within principal and auxiliary power supply points and location cases. It provides monitoring at the level of detail required, breaking away from the traditional limitations of network and feeder level monitoring and is the only system that offers Tier One adherence to the Network Rail Insulation Monitoring Device standard NR/L2/SIGELP/27725. The core technology was developed for the harsh subsea environment and is in extensive use by subsea oil field operators, globally.
CableGuardian provides condition trends and graphically highlights faults of Insulation Resistance, Insulation Capacitance, conductor to conductor faults and intermittent faults via a secure web browser-based analytics package eradicating the need for extensive track-side fault-finding campaigns. The CableGuardian system operates continuously on live power networks and provides critical condition information in real time, eliminating the need to power down the system for intrusive testing. These key features can potentially reduce frequency inspection and invasive testing requirements of by NR/L3/SIGELP/50000 /NR/L3/SIGELP/50001.
Developed in collaboration with Network Rail, CableGuardian supports the ambitions to reduce maintenance costs and time-related E&P infrastructure failures, to reduce the number and duration of service affecting failures and to improve the overall asset management process.
Demonstrations of the CableGuardian system will take place on stand D18 during Infrarail. We can also carry out further demonstrations at sites, country-wide upon request. For more information, please, email firstname.lastname@example.org
