BWatch
Integrated SF6 and g3 Monitoring System and Internal arc localization for GIS

With worldwide scrutiny on SF6 gas usage, increased environmental reporting requirements and even possible penalties, precise early detection of small gas leaks in Gas Insulated Substations that use so much SF6 is essential.

The BWatch uses the latest generation of EMC resistant digital gas sensors to continuously measure gas pressure and temperatures in order to track changes in density and detect gas leaks down to 0.1% per year.

It provides this information remotely and forecasts refilling needs prior to reaching threshold levels and affecting GIS operation. It can be coupled with PD Watch to provide a complete GIS monitoring solution.
