From Pilot to Rollout - Scaling Up Remote Substation Monitoring Solutions
April 17, 2023
Thermal and visual sensors are familiar technology for utilities. Technicians already leverage similar tools when conducting physical inspections at remote substations, and the data provided by these sensors allows utilities to identify potential issues and schedule repairs.Read Article
Training & Development Requirements When Implementing Remote Substation Monitoring
April 3, 2023
Thermal & Visual Monitoring solutions offer utilities numerous benefits over traditional approaches to maintenance. Instead of costly truck rolls and manual inspections, utility-grade sensors allow the Operations & Maintenance (O&M) team to monitor the health of high-value substation assets remotely. By detecting sudden or prolonged changes in temperature, utilities can identify potential issues, diagnose the problem, and dispatch a crew to conduct the repair, all from a centralized location.

On-Time and on Budget - Planning Your Thermal & Visual Monitoring Systems Deployment
March 20, 2023
The traditional way of maintaining and repairing substation assets costs utilities time and money and does not make the most efficient use of scarce technical resources. Technicians must frequently visit remote locations, conduct physical inspections, record any issues, and return with the right equipment or parts to complete the repair.Read Article
How Utilities can Transition from Scheduled Maintenance to a Condition-Based Maintenance Strategy
March 6, 2023
Maintenance and repairs represent a significant cost for electrical utilities. A typical utility allocates around 15 percent of its total operations & maintenance (O&M) budget to planned or scheduled maintenance. While generally simple to manage, this approach can be highly inefficient. Minor issues can go unnoticed in between inspections leading to more serious failures, while crews can spend more time travelling between sites and inspecting equipment than actually conducting repairs.Read Article
Enhancing Climate Resiliency – 3 Ways Utilities Can Leverage Thermal and Visual Monitoring
February 20, 2023
Severe weather and environmental damage pose some of the most significant threats to North America’s electrical infrastructure. Major storms, heatwaves, wildfires, floods, and blizzards can all damage equipment, bring down transmission lines, and cause widespread and prolonged power outages. Read Article
Decarbonization – The Transition to Sustainable Power Generation
February 6, 2023
The way we generate, transmit, and use electricity is changing. Driven by government policies, technological advances, and falling prices, sustainable energy sources are increasingly being used to lower emissions without compromising on reliability or affordability.Read Article
Transitioning to Green Energy – How Utilities Can Leverage Thermal and Visual Monitoring
January 23, 2023
Around the world, both governments and utilities are striving to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the electricity sector through renewable and sustainable generation technologies. While these efforts have resulted in significant progress, there is still a substantial amount of work left to be done to fully decarbonize the grid while delivering affordable and reliable power to customers.

Transforming an Aging Grid – Where Should Utilities Focus Investments?
January 9, 2023
The North American electric grid is a remarkable achievement. Spreading across the entire continent, the complex mix of generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure continues to deliver reliable power to customers in even the most remote locations.Read Article
Reducing Substation Maintenance Costs With Utility-Grade Thermal and Visual Sensors
December 19, 2022
A midsized utility operates numerous remote electrical substations distributed across a wide geographic region. Physical inspections are conducted on a periodic, scheduled basis using handheld thermal scanners and other equipment to determine the health of substation assets, diagnose issues, and prioritize repairs.Read Article
3 Reasons Utilities Should Embrace Automated Thermal Imaging for Remote Substation Monitoring
December 9, 2022
Electrical utilities play a vital role in delivering safe and reliable power to consumers, businesses, and governments. In the U.S. alone, more than $400 billion of electricity flows through more than 7 million miles of high voltage transmission and distribution lines that criss-cross the country. More than 55,000 substations convert that voltage to distribution levels so that it can be safely used. Read Article
