Shaft Ground Monitoring: Premium System

Cutsforth's Premium Shaft Current and Voltage Monitoring system provides superior levels of analysis to mitigate severe cost due to bearing and other damage caused by improperly grounded units.

—— Key Features
  • Continuously measures:
    • Peak and Average Ground Current
    • Peak and Average Shaft Voltage (Between the Turbine and Generator)
    • Peak and Average Shaft Voltage (Outboard of the Generator at the Exciter location)
    • Ability to capture details of transient events associated with failures
  • Touch Screen Monitor for real time information display
  • USB port enables data download for analysis or the installation of upgrades and revisions
  • Delivers waveform level data of critical shaft grounding elements
  • Rope Alarm indicates when ground and metering ropes require replacement
  • Remote Meter Points enable technicians to safely take independent hand held or oscilloscope meter readings
  • Multi Channel 4/20 mA outputs allows communication to plant DCS systems
  • The system is fully managed and data is archived using National Instruments InsightCM platform
