mNODE

Self-powered sensor for busbars and power distribution systems

Functions

  • The mNODE sensor allows continuos temperature measurement on bus-bars and electrical equipment
  • mNODE has been designed to easily integrate in standard low and medium voltage systems to allow early detection of failures and abnormal behaviour
  • Longer term trend analysis enable increased availability through condition monitoring
  • Automated monitoring, 24/7, ready for PLC/BMS or SCADA visualisation
  • Robust data communication through license free IEEE 802.15.4 radio
  • Small, compact design, fitted within seconds:
    40 x 40 x 25.4 mm, 60 gr

Typical areas of application

  • Switchboards, MCCs, busbars
  • Space-constrained cabinets
  • Single-conductor cables
  • Transformers, generators/motors
  • AC only

Features and Benefits

  • Inductive energy harvesting. Generates electrical energy from magnetic stray fields.
  • Early start from 50 A current (at busbars from 10 mm x 30 mm width).
  • Rapid and easy retrofit.
  • Temperature measurement range 0–150 °C (32–300 °F).
  • Robust data communication through licence-free 2.4 GHz radio, IEEE 802.15.4.
