ETOS® IM – Integration Module

Maximum reliability for power transformers.

Your benefits at
a glance

  • Easy integration into your control cabinet
  • Reliable online monitoring of power transformers
  • Flexibility thanks to a modular structure, individual expansion possible
  • A wide selection of functions (e.g. on-load tap-changer monitoring, DGA, cooling system monitoring and control)
  • Easy to operate, intuitive graphics interfacee

ETOS® IM. Easy. Automate.

Record, process, display and forward operating data for transformers – ETOS® IM offers you all these functions in a single device. Whether simply displaying a status or generating individual reports, ETOS® IM features an outstanding variety of functions and a particularly high level of operating convenience. All these features come in a variety of designs (mounted on a cap rail, installed in the tap changer drive or as a 19" device).

ETOS® IM. Maximum flexibility.

The ETOS® IM is impressive because it provides maximum flexibility in the combination of functions. The system enables customer-specific expansion of basic functions by individually selectable and combinable supplementary modules. Various function packages can be included in the initial order or ordered at a later date. Not only standard functions, such as voltage and temperature measurement, but also wide-ranging functions such as transformer monitoring (including DGA and bushing monitoring) and tap-changer monitoring are among the function packages. Optional additional control and regulation functions such as voltage regulation and cooling system control can also be included in the ETOS® IM order.

ETOS® IM. Incorporating MR technology.

ETOS® IM comes with ISM® technology that we developed. It is particularly well suited to the special conditions that are present in the field of electrical energy technology. The simple connection and configuration process for the transformer sensors means that commissioning can be carried out quickly and easily. In addition to the outstanding monitoring functions, you can also take advantage of the freely available inputs and outputs that allow you to tailor your transformer monitoring process to your needs. The recorded and evaluated data can be transferred directly to the control system. This greatly reduces the amount of wiring needed during installation and significantly cuts costs compared to a conventional connection method. Visualization takes place via an integrated web server, so there is no need to spend valuable time installing software packages.
