LumaSense new m924 Utility Module for winding hot spot transformer monitoring applications

A cost-effective choice for an accurate, real-time fiber optic based temperature monitoring solution

USA, Santa Clara, California: LumaSense Technologies, Inc. introduces the new m924 Utility Module, designed for real-time transformer winding hot spot and temperature monitoring between -30 °C and 200 °C. The module is specifically designed and optimized for transformer system monitoring providers and transformer manufacturers wanting to use LUXTRON Fluoroptic® Diptip and Quality fiber optic temperature probes, cables, and tank wall plates in their equipment.

The LUXTRON m924 Utility Module is a single printed circuit board (PCB) offering four channels that can be included in a transformer monitoring system. The m924 Utility Module offers RS232 with ASCII and RS485 with Modbus digital output for integration with standard PC or SCADA systems. In addition, the m924 Utility Module is guaranteed to be backward compatible with the LUXTRON DipTip and Quality probes and LUXTRON accessories.

The LUXTRON m924 Utility Module is designed to directly monitor winding hot spots. Unlike conventional winding temperature indicators (WTIs) that infer the hot-spot temperature, this module measures the winding hot spot accurately and in real-time without modeling. With instant results, controllers and pumps can act immediately, preventing transformer asset damage.

Leveraging LumaSense’s patented Fluoroptic® technology and designed to replace the LumaSense m600 Series Utility Modules, the m924 Utility Module provides better performance with improved manufacturing and modern architecture. When combined with the LUXTRON probes, the system provides precise and repeatable in-situ temperature measurements and control of processes involving RF, EMI, magnetic fields and high voltages, while the small form makes the module easy to integrate into existing equipment.

With over 40 years of fiber optic temperature monitoring experience with our LUXTRON brand, LumaSense customers are known to experience low failure rates and better yields using our highly accurate solutions. Unlike competitors who are unable to meet the high-performance and reliability standards, our solutions are designed with a proven reliability history and custom probe capabilities.
