INTEGO GM

On-line Generator Partial Discharge Monitor


For the first time Asset Managers have in-depth knowledge of Generator condition at their fingertips. INTEGO GM represents the next generation of monitor – reliable Partial Discharge data automatically converted into powerful and intuitive information.


Overview

Trending Partial Discharges (PD) over time is a key factor to prevent early failures and extend stator insulation life. Meaningful results and correct data interpretation is achievable only by measuring PD under the same load, temperature and voltage conditions.

INTEGO GM is the only system correlating PD data with generator operating condition, thus providing real information enabling asset managers to dramatically reduce insulation degradation rate and extend generator life.

The unique capability of summarizing PD events at different operating conditions, including PD at machine start-up, makes INTEGO GM the perfect tool for generators under cycling regime or subjected to highly variable load.

INTEGO GM enables an asset strategy based on knowledge and reliable information. Designed to the highest industrial standards, INTEGO GM is suitable for safe installation in live operating conditions and is designed for extreme environmental conditions.
