New Product: GraceSense Hot Spot Monitor (HSM)

May 2, 2017 | Product Promotions | Automation

Continuous Temperature Monitoring

GraceSense™ Hot Spot Monitor (HSM) is a non-conductive temperature monitoring device that identifies potential hot spots and enables user to predict the failures in an electrical equipment. Identifying faults before they occur saves money when unplanned outages, service interruptions, and equipment failures are avoided. Design and communication flexibility allows the HSM to be used as either stand-alone or fully integrated into a plant wide information system. Plant wide integration is made simple when the device is connected via MODBUS TCP I/P or Ethernet I/P to the facility’s SCADA/ DCS systems while stand-alone application is made possible with GraceSense™ web interface to configure temperature thresholds, monitoring intervals and relay outputs.


  • Better Maintenance Planning—Continuous temperature monitoring and alarming device of electrical equipment identifies electrical hot spots before failures and expensive shutdowns occur.
  • Simple Field Installation—Non-conductive fiber probes securely piggy-back onto existing bolted connections and potential heat sources such as; busbars, breaker connections, bus ducts, transformers, or any other potential hot spots.
  • Any Voltage—Non-conductive technology safely applied to any electrical systems.
  • Reduced Risk—Ability to monitor and retrieve temperature data of critical inaccessible connections and their associated alarms safely via GraceSense™ Web Utility Interface, Ethernet I/P, and MODBUS communication.
