BPL Global Ltd. (BPLG) says it is offering its Serveron TM1 monitoring solution for distribution grid and other power transformers.

The TM1 continuously monitors hydrogen PPM levels using dissolved gas analysis, and utilities can program alarms based on PPM levels and/or rates of change to warn distribution system operators of potential transformer faults and pending failures. BPLG says its patented monitoring technologies do not use membranes and do not require sensor replacement, consumables or scheduled maintenance.

"It provides utilities with the information needed to maintain the reliability of distribution transformers and extend the life of these critical assets," says Peter Londa, CEO of BPLG.
