Having continuous thermal monitoring provides automotive manufacturers with the ability to respond faster to issues, reduce unplanned downtime and perform predictive maintenance.
The number of devices in a panel are increasing due to the higher functionality requirements of equipment and devices. On the other hand, available maintenance personnel has decreased over time. Thermal monitoring and inspections require experienced personnel that can identify potential issues using special thermal monitoring equipment. Inspections only provide a snapshot of the thermal condition and does not provide real-time analysis.
The K6PM is a compact, thermal condition monitor that offers continuous thermal monitoring of critical components such as high voltage control panels, transformers, hydraulic equipment, data centers, bearings, gearboxes, and more. It utilizes a controller with a built-in display and a remote thermal image camera. This product eliminates the need of manual thermal inspections of critical components and allows the user to monitor these components in real-time and at a safe distance. It can be used as an early fire detection device. Automated collection and analysis reduces the setup and operation time.
