Fiber optic thermometer, FotempTrafo

Due to the growing demand of energy existing power plants and grids are stretched to their limits. To ensure operati¬onal safety, critical factors such as temperature have to be monitored in generators and transformers. High power generators are often filled with hydrogen in order to cool effectively. Besides the heavily contaminated electromagnetic environment the risk for explosions is high. Conventional measurement systems can not guarantee a reliable temperature monitoring. That is the reason why we offer our new FOTEMPTrafo.
It is ideal for temperature monitoring of hot spots in transformers. Together with the TSTrafo temperature probe enable accurate and precise measurements of Trafo windings. By direct installation of the sensors in the windings real, current and quick monitoring is possible.

The fiber optic thermometer FOTEMPTrafo is available with 1-8 measurement channels. The compact unit size and the height-adjustable DIN-rail-clip provide an easy installation in the cabinet. A wide selection of interfaces makes communication even easier. The choices are: RS-232, RS485, Profibus and Modbus that ensure an optimal connection. A fast measurement speed of 250ms per channel allows the direct detection of overloads. The high measurement range from -200°C to +300°C with an accuracy of ± 0.2°C makes the FOTEMPTrafo to an ideal partner for all transformer applications.

We also offer a wide range of accessories for the safe installation of sensors on the tank walls or bus bars. So you can get optic feed throughs, and tank wall plates and covers with us. For installation on bus bars we recommend our spacers.

The Optocon AG develops since 1993 measurement devices for fiber optic temperature measurement and fiber optic temperature sensors. In 20 years of business experience, the focus of the company is to provide customers with innovative and individual solutions for their fiber optic measurement projects. From the office in Dresden Optocon AG has established itself internationally and delivers products anywhere in the world.

FOTEMPTrafo for smart grid temperature sensing in transformer
Power plants and grids are stretched to their limits. To ensure the operati¬onal safety, critical factors such as "Hot-Spots" inside high voltage transformers, power factor correction capacitors and alternators are monitored. Other possible capabilities are temperature measurement on high voltage distribution power lines such as for electric trains or in gas isolated power breakers and in power factor adjustment capacitors. Under such difficult and harsh environments conventional measurement systems
