The Case for Critical Asset Monitoring

  • The vast majority of critical assets in the field today are greater than 25 years old.
  • Less than 5% of installed critical assets have continuous monitoring integrated.
  • Temperature is the leading indicator of critical asset failure.
  • Critical asset failure is one of the leading causes of power outages.
  • The average cost of critical asset failure is greater than $500K per event.
  • The ROI for implementing continuous switchgear monitoring is less than 12 months.
  • Critical asset failure often involves injury to humans, and is known to cause deaths.

Critical Assets include switchgear, transformers, RMU’s, LV Distribution Panels, Bus Ducts (poly-phase & uni-phase), Motor Controllers, etc.
