Brush Condition Monitoring reduces operating and maintenance costs, risk of ring fires, and unplanned outages; while simultaneously improving manpower efficiency, and the reliability of the production of electricity.
Now, more than ever before, it is important to be able to plan outages based on the condition of the brushes rather than having to rely on a calendar.
Through Brush Condition Monitoring, plants are able to reliably measure, collect, and store data for potential faults in the exciters and collector rings without human intervention. The system wirelessly measures:
- Usable Brush Length
- Wear Rate
