New cable and conductor fault finding system with realtime monitoring

Pressemitteilung von


18.09.2018 – The only solution that adheres to UK’s Network Rail Insulation Monitoring Device standard NR/L2/SIGELP/27725.

CableGuardian is a browser-based condition monitoring and fault finding system for both cable and conductor faults on electrical networks. Measurements are taken by multiple independent sensor units which are dispersed over unearthed power distribution networks, such as rail signalling power. CableGuardian provides condition trends and graphically highlights faults of insulation resistance, insulation capacitance, voltage, conductor to conductor faults and intermittent faults minimising trackside fault-finding campaigns. The measurement data is then interpreted and displayed as useful condition information.

The solution operates continuously on live power networks eliminating the need to power down the system for intrusive testing. CableGuardian provides monitoring at cable section level, breaking away from the traditional limitations of Insulation Monitoring Devices which offer only a single resistance measurement for the complete network or, at best, feeder level monitoring.

CableGuardian provides the only solution for top-level Tier 1 adherence to the UK’s Network Rail Insulation Monitoring Device standard NR/L2/SIGELP/27725, which recommends monitoring of the cable sections. Additionally, CableGuardian’s real-time monitoring for conductor faults on the copper or aluminium cable cores provides an alternative approach to the intrusive, five-yearly core-to-core testing requirements of the Network Rail NR/L2/SIGELP/50000 standard.

Developed at the request of Network Rail, CableGuardian supports the ambitions to reduce maintenance costs and time-related E&P infrastructure failures, to reduce the frequency and duration of service affecting failures and to improve the overall asset management process.
