Don't fret. Get grounded.

Shaft Constant Monitoring System

Introducing Cutsforth's powerful, new Shaft Constant Monitoring System. By utilizing Cutsforth's patented Shaft Grounding Assembly, this system is designed not only to provide the best-in-class ground connection, it also collects, stores and delivers critical voltage information to plant personnel for analysis. The system provides Waveform level information that can be easily exported for in-depth analysis as required, as well as provides real time data to a control room's DCS or other 3rd party systems.

Plants that know differentials in shaft voltage can take corrective action ahead of catastrophic failure.
