Substation transformer protection can be overpriced and dauntingly engineered. TransformerIQ provides a simpler, more affordable alternative—the same functionality at a fraction of the complexity and cost.
Using the latest in sensing and communications technology, TransformerIQ monitors load (current) and top and bottom oil temperature simply and affordably. Armed with accurate, real-time data on these parameters, you can determine calculated hot spot and insulation loss-of-life rate to protect your transformer asset.
But TransformerIQ also provides full-featured, comprehensive transformer monitoring. It loads current on up to 12 windings with neutrals as opposed to the usual three, provides cooling monitoring and control, and the ability to function as a data concentrator with inputs from other monitoring devices.

Use TransformerIQ’s real-time measurements to perform the in-depth diagnosis that maximizes asset life, pre-empts issues, minimizes outages, and increases network capacity:
Using hot spot temperatures calculated or measured with fiber optic probes, TransformerIQ calculates the rate and cumulative life lost on up to 12 windings. This level of transparency maximizes both asset life, and asset health.
A single sensor provides full functionality, with:
Track and trend insulation failure or surface contamination (with BushingIQ). You’ll have advance warning of bushing failure—the leading cause of transformer failure—through sensors that detect early changes in voltage amplitude and phase angle.
Through retrofit, capture full trending of:
