Hot Spots
Monitoring System

Solution to Hot Spots

The deterioration of electrical contacts in low, medium and high voltage systems causes an over-temperature rise in certain points of the network.

These undetected hot spots eventually lead to accelerated degradation of equipment and installations.

FDX Ingeniería provides an innovative solution for temperature data collection in low, medium and high voltage power distribution systems which we call FDX-HS.

In extreme cases, they cause major accidents and unplanned outages of the electrical system.

Hot spots monitoring on circuit breakers

Small sensors make it possible to collect temperature data at points inaccessible by conventional systems, while maintaining electrical safety distance. An essential system for industry 4.0
