DETECTS FAILURES AND NOTIFIES
Detects Breakages, Blockages and Major Misalignments
The IMCC performs real-time analysis during operations and detects motor current increases or decreases, and categorizes them into specific problems based on the position where the failure occurs. It has the ability to detect breakages, blockages and major misalignments.
The IMCC Integrated System for Controlling and Monitoring isolators is the only product on the market capable of monitoring the air break switch itself, and not only the motor operator.
Detect Motor Operator Failures and Malfunctions
Many components of the Motor Operator are monitored during each operation as a function of time and position. Motor over currents are detected and limited, over voltages, environmental status, system status, power, torque and many other parameters are monitored and analyzed in real-time to detect possible developing problems with the disconnect switch and the IMCC mechanism.
Categorizes Failures & Notifies with Severity Levels
Detected failures are categorized into 20 error codes and two alarm severity levels, all in real-time. As soon as a failure is recorded, a SCADA alarm signal is generated to notify the operator and an error is displayed locally to help diagnosis.
Up to 30 SCADA configurable outputs are available with various configurations available such as contact 89a & 89b, alarm 1, alarm 2, system status, etc. All are easily configurable using the CMI software.
The IMCC communication module, called the Auxiliary Signal Module, ASM, also provides DNP3 and IEC61850 capabilities. All alarms, error codes and analog data are available for download in real-time through these protocols.
Increases Availability Rate
The IMCC is the only monitoring system that notifies the operator should a problem occur with the air break switch. Maintenance can then be planned and the problem can be addressed immediately increasing the availability rate of the equipment and making sure the equipment is functional when it needs to work in critical situations.
With standard motor operators, a problem can occur during an operation and the operator will never know until another remote operation is initiated weeks or months later and the equipment fails to operate. In certain circumstances, it may cause maintenance delays and financial losses for the utility.
