Cresatech CuTS® monitors grounding / earthing infrastructure on electricity substations for theft or damage in real time, alerting to service disruption and the risk for employees and the public, of death or serious harm.

Electricity substation and mobile tower earthing / grounding is critical to safe operation of the site.  Yet it is not monitored and is increasingly the target of theft on an industrial scale.  As a result, electricity operators are left unaware of earthing removal which in turn, leaves sites in a dangerous condition, putting people, assets and service supply at risk.  The benefits from automatic alerting using IoT technology in real time for theft, degradation or failure of the grounding / earthing include:

  • Enhances asset/site safety playing a critical role in protecting staff and public from death and serious injury (ALARP)
  • Electricity substations can cover a large area and Cresatech CuTS highlights the occurrence of a fault and its location for faster and safer resolution.
  • Minimises outage risk thereby reducing consequential asset damages, service failure and other financial losses. It has a role in Critical Infrastructure protection (CIP)
  • Automated monitoring reduces the frequency of manual inspection allowing better use of resources.

Product Description

Cresatech CuTS® is a scalable solution designed for service environments where safety and service continuity are paramount. CuTS® technology monitors grounding / earthing infrastructure in real time for theft, degradation and failure providing operating companies with immediate, accurate intelligence on asset status. Enhancing site safety protects staff and public from death and serious injury, minimises outage risk and unplanned maintenance thereby reducing consequential damages and other financial loss.

CuTS® monitors metallic infrastructure for change due to cutting/removal, damage or degradation. The CuTS® tamperproof module incorporates a unique and patented inductance sensor that is sensitive to small changes in inductance down to 0.02 micro Henrys. When the Cresatech sense wires detect a change beyond pre-set and adjustable thresholds, the alarm is activated. Edge computing applies filter intelligence and thresholds designed to ensure normal 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 voltages, ground connectivity, 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 real time visibility of the monitoring of a site either locally or remotely. Communication integration options The unit includes an IoT / M2M modem which can be is used to communicate alerts and configure/manage the unit. A full managed service is available.
