Shaft Ground Monitoring: Premium System

Cutsforth™ 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
