Fault Detection in High-Voltage Cables
With Ingenious E-Sense, we enable electric shovel teams to pinpoint faulty or damaged high-voltage cables using a combination of smart sensors and edge analytics. Discover a better way to identify faulty or damaged high-voltage cables in real-time and streamline your preventative maintenance strategy.
Remove Trial & Error from Managing Cable Health and Mitigate Downtime
Power shovels are integral to any open-pit mining operation – like all heavy equipment, any unplanned downtime due to damage or maintenance concerns can mean $100,000s in wages and lost-productivity. That’s why when a fault or break in a high-voltage cable triggers an automatic shutdown, electrical teams need a way to quickly identify issues.
To date, this has meant mine maintenance teams walking the line diagnosing individual cables until finding the segment that needs replacing.
Ingenious E-Sense mitigates manual checking, providing field operations teams with real-time insight into the exact location of faulty or damaged cables.
Meet E-Sense: The Future of Smart Cable Management
The Ingenious E-Sense is a non-invasive IoT device designed to capture the electromagnetic field emitted by High-Voltage Cables. Each sensor is equipped with millisecond accurate GPS-synched clocks that log the location and sequence of the drop in power.
How It Works
Each sensor communicates via LoRaWAN, enabling it to transmit messages at distances of up to 30KM and through steel & concrete structures.
The E-Sense is specially ruggedized to withstand the harsh conditions of industrial environments.
Long-lasting batteries offer the Ingenious E-Sense up to 5 Years battery life before needing to be replaced.
The E-Sense is fitted with durable bands to attach to any size of high-voltage cable.
