The SONUS PD-X 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 surface tracking, arcing or corona. 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-X will help you prevent unexpected outages.
Perform ultrasound electrical inspections with more accuracy than scanning a seam of a cabinet by having direct access into the cabinet interior. PDS and VPDS ports allow the Sonus PD-X to safely scan from the outside of the cabinet and not lose any of the signal due to diffraction.
The SONUS PD App unlocks additional functions with the SONUS PD-X Instrument. Once the unit and App have been paired, the SONUS PD-X will display a Bluetooth Symbol and all readings and monitoring functionality will transfer to the SONUS PD App on your smartphone. With the SONUS PD App, all data collected can also be transferred to a customer specific secure cloud database for further analysis and histogram trending.
The built-in speaker allows the user to use SONUS PD-X without the headphone in quieter areas of the plant, making for a more comfortable day of testing.
