Powerstar’s extensive range of distribution transformers includes Powerstar SO-LO, the first super low loss amorphous core smart distribution transformer with online remote monitoring capabilities for maximum visibility of asset performance.
What is a smart distribution transformer?
Traditionally, transformers are critical but often overlooked aspects of the high voltage infrastructure. Once deployed, they can have a lifespan of up to 50 years, and apart from a manual annual inspection are often left untouched.
By adding in carefully selected sensors and controls, Powerstar has brought its amorphous core distribution transformer into the 21st century by developing a remote monitoring platform that enables 24/7 real-time access to performance and conditional data of the products on an easy to navigate user-friendly platform.
Smart transformers represent a shift towards the next industrial revolution, aptly referred to as Industry 4.0, where online and connected technologies that are Internet of Things (IoT) ready, are rapidly becoming the norm in all facets and functions. This includes the high voltage (HV) infrastructure many sites operate and maintain, to which the distribution transformer is a crucial piece of the puzzle.
