Sonus PD Pro

PD Detection of HV Assets with Data Synchronization


Overview Image


The Sonus PD Pro is specifically designed for Partial Discharge (PD) and Airborne Emission (AE) detection on Medium and High Voltage Switchgear. The unit detects Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) signals generated by internal partial discharge as well as ultrasound acoustic discharge generated by PD phenomenon. PD detection can be utilized to detect early warning signs of equipment insulation failure. Inspections can be performed quickly and safely by maintenance personnel with minimal training. Fast and accurate diagnosis of problems using the Sonus PD Pro will help you prevent unexpected outages. Bluetooth connectivity allows the inspector to pair the device to an Android based phone or Tablet, which in turn sends the data to the Cloud Based Software for analysis and reporting. Utilizing the Sonus PD Pro with a Sonus UHF-P sensor or the Sonus HFCT-P clamp will allow the inspector to detect PD in broader range of applications and equipment. The Sonus PD Pro is compatible with all IRISS CAP Series PD and PDS Inspection windows and VPDS Inspection ports. Allowing the Sonus PD Pro to safely scan a singular repeatable test point from the outside of the cabinet and not lose any of the signal due to diffraction.

Advanced Noise Rejection

System detects PD in higher noise environments, reducing the possibility false positives

Quickly & Easily Identify Faults

The Sonus PD Pro has 4 operational ranges with a live Level Screen, and two scatter plots screens displaying a PRPD Live and a PRPD Persist view which instantly show the technician the presence of a fault condition.
