Add value with Sensformer

The baseline of the "Internet of Energy"

Today’s world is connected, and we believe it is about time to also connect transformers digitally. We are paving the way for a completely new product class: the SensformerTM. No matter if you operate a transformer in a power generation plant, an industrial application or in the grid: Your assets will let you know their operational status and give an indication when abnormalities occur. The consequence: more transparency and flexibility at minimized risks and cost.

Sensors, data and future opportunities

Would you like to know more? Let’s take a closer look at the data and future options you get with our connectivity feature.

Sensformer - your eye to the grid

Transformers already are a vital and decisive part of power grids – no matter if conventional or digital. The SensformerTM will enable you to digitize this important keystone of your grid. Now your transformers are connective!

A SensformerTM contains the necessary sensors for entering the most important operating parameters – such as oil-level, temperature, LV winding current and GPS-positioning. To step into the world of digitalized transformers, you simply add a GSM-card. Data submission can be done via GSM as well as Ethernet-connection without the need of a secondary IT infrastructure.

You don't need a ton of big data to improve operations, but just a slim set of smart data – digitalization means connecting the dots.

Puneet Harminder Singh, Project Manager

Accessible for all, fit for the future

Transformers are located at each critical node within the power grid and are exposed to various forms of electrical and physical stress. Without a comprehensive monitoring device attached, their real status is usually unknown.

But wouldn’t it be neat if the transformers told you how it is getting along? With a SensformerTM you get just that!

The next generation transformer is equipped with a connectivity feature that measures a defined set of data. With a wireless connection and data analysis app, your transformer and grid data become transparent for you. Operating under overload conditions for a certain time? Planning maintenance to prolong transformer lifetime? Simplify your asset management, enhance your operations and increase availability.
