GridSense, an Acorn Energy company that develops and markets advanced monitoring solutions for the electric power industry, and WEIDMANN Electrical Technology are partnering to launch the InsuLogix B transformer-bushing monitoring system.

The system helps utilities prevent bushing failure through preemptive, condition-based monitoring and maintenance. Bushing failures are the leading cause of catastrophic transformer failures, which can cost utilities millions of dollars in lost equipment and fire damage, and leave thousands without power for extended periods.

Unlike off-line systems that require an outage in order to monitor bushings, the GridSense technology powering the InsuLogix B protects transformers 24/7, in real-time, in any weather and under a full load.
