Improving Underground Fault Location
Sentient Energy Line Sensors
How It Works
With Sentient Energy’s UM3+ underground utilities can better isolate fault locations and reduce patrol areas significantly. The UM3+ sensors offer:
- Accurate measurements – UM3+ line sensors accurately capture continuous load data as well as fault magnitude up to 10kA within +/-2% accuracy.
- High-resolution waveforms – High-fidelity fault waveform data is captured at 256 samples per cycle and made available via the Ample Analytics Platform for enhanced fault analysis.
- No maintenance power supply – UM3+ sensors are fully line-powered with only 12A or more on just one phase, eliminating the need for any external power source.
Sentient Energy’s UM3+ underground line sensors are field proven to improve the precision of underground fault location, helping utility crews find faults more quickly, saving costs, and enabling faster outage restoration.
