Hitachi ABB brings out new remote services for transformers
Hitachi ABB Power Grids has developed a new range of TXpert™ Remote Services for transformer fleets.
The range includes remote monitoring, consulting, troubleshooting, and guidance using augmented reality.
Working together remotely, Hitachi ABB Power Grids supports customers in analyzing large amounts of data and creating comprehensive reports that include the next steps required for optimal maintenance.
“Digitalization and the amount of collected data can be overwhelming. We help our customers turn data into insights and make better decisions,” said Helmut Bockshammer, Global Head of Transformer Components and Service business.
“With our new TXpert™ Remote Services, we offer the most comprehensive transformer service portfolio, combining innovative digital services with our traditional offering. During the pandemic, we had reduced access to sites. That made customers all the more appreciative of having remote access to our expertise and demonstrated the value of augmented reality in enhancing diagnostic and troubleshooting support.”
The range of TXpert™ Remote Services makes full use of the open and scalable TXpertTM Ecosystem of sensing and monitoring solutions to gather real-time data to evaluate a transformer’s condition. Remote monitoring securely connects transformers to a centralized monitoring system in a plant or substation control room via standardized wired, wireless, or cellular communication.
In addition, connection to Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ scalable Asset Performance Management (APM) software provides actionable insights to minimize the risk of unplanned outages and prioritize investment decisions – whether related to one transformer or an entire enterprise.
