Permanent on-line partial discharge (PD) monitoring system for power cables

Locates defects in power cables

MONCABLO is a customizable, permanently-installed system for the continuous on-line monitoring of partial discharge (PD) activity in the electrical insulation of high-voltage cable systems, including cable terminations and joints. Advanced diagnostic techniques enable you to reliably evaluate insulation condition and locate defects to prevent costly in-service failures at an early stage.

MONCABLO at a glance

Detailed measurement
Synchronous, multi-channel partial discharge data acquisition enables you to gather more complete data for more reliable assessments of PD activity in power cable insulation.
Reliable data analysis
Advanced noise suppression and multiple partial discharge source separation techniques ensure that only relevant PD data is evaluated so that you can detect faults quicker.
Automatic problem notification
Detailed partial discharge trend analysis with warnings and alarms of high PD activity helps you to identify potential problems and to make timely maintenance decisions.
Remote data access
The comprehensive software enables you to configure the monitoring system, change alarm thresholds and view real-time data and trends remotely using the convenient web interface.

Complete diagnosis of cable insulation

Using a unique patented technology, PD defects are reliably located along the entire cable length. These features enable you to make PD measurements for after-installation testing of HV cables. The system software also allows you to easily correlate PD data with the data from third-party sensors, such as temperature and oil pressure sensors, also installed on the cable system.

“With its inductive power supply, MONCABLO is also ideal for partial discharge monitoring on buried cables and cables installed in confined spaces such as underground tunnels.”
