Capture, evaluate, store, and visualize transformer data and drive the on-load tap-changer. ETOS® ED. Integrated intelligence.

In addition to driving the tap-changer (using a mechanical drive shaft), ETOS® ED lets you evaluate and record all of the relevant operating data from your power transformer, such as monitoring the tap changer or evaluating transformer utilization. ETOS® ED helps with focused planning of operation and maintenance. The solid, proven housing protects both the motor-drive unit and the integrated monitoring system. ETOS® ED is also ideal for retrofitting monitoring functions on older transformers. Optional automation solutions such as voltage regulation and cooling system control can also be included in the ETOS® ED order and used as supplementary equipment for controlling the transformer.

Minimum wiring, maximum flexibility.

Fitting ETOS® ED on the transformer directly transfers all relevant data to the control station via network protocol using a fiber-optic cable. This greatly reduces the amount of wiring needed during installation and significantly cuts costs compared to a conventional connection method. Integration of additional functions makes this added value available to you without even impacting system costs. We are happy to advise you and develop solutions with you that are tailored to your exact needs. Of course, we can even commission your systems on site on request.
