Cresatech CuTS® is a scalable solution designed for service environments where safety and service continuity are paramount.
CuTS® technology monitors grounding / earthing infrastructure for damage, theft and degradation, providing operating companies with immediate, accurate intelligence on asset status. The ability to provide data on the status of the grounding infrastructure enhances site safety, protecting staff and public from serious injury or death. The operational data also drives reduction in outage time and reduces costs
CuTS® monitors metallic infrastructure for change due to cutting/removal, damage or degradation. The CuTS® tamperproof module incorporates a unique and patented sensor that is sensitive to changes in impedance that result from the small changes in inductance when the grounding infrastructure changes physically. When the Cresatech monitor detects a change beyond pre-set and adjustable thresholds, the notification system activated. Edge computing applies filter intelligence and thresholds designed to ensure normal site operating conditions and other events do not result in false alarms.
The solution has been designed to manage non relevant spurious site conditions such as voltage changes, switching activity, fault conditions or electrical discharges.
Set up of the system for each application/ installation is achieved through simple tuning/ adjustment at installation via the CuTS® management interface. This management software provides tuning options, as well as enabling visibility of the monitoring of a site either locally or remotely.
Communication integration options
The unit includes an IoT / M2M modem which is used to communicate condition data and configure/manage the unit. The condition data is then analysed as part of a cloud based service. The data that results can then be utilized as discrete site status information and acted upon accordingly, or used to analyse alongside other infrastructure sensor sources, to enable pre-emptive maintenance and work scheduling.
