Emerson Network Power’s Transient Detection System Protects and Monitors Critical Power

Emerson Network Power has introduced the latest addition to its surge protection product family—the advanced Transient Detection System. This product combines the industry’s premier surge protection technology with a state-of-the-art, web-based power quality monitor. It’s the ideal choice for both protecting and monitoring critical power applications.
The new Emerson Transient Detection System allows users to monitor and track system anomalies such as transients, surges, swells, VTHDs, and features multiple alarm thresholds, including nine preset triggered alarm conditions and the capability for user-modified thresholds. Additionally, the product’s monitor measures and records the magnitude and duration of transient events, then dates and time stamps the data for detailed event logging. A multi-port serial and Ethernet connection, and an embedded webpage enable remote or on-site access of all information 24/7.
Surge events can put a facility at risk; understanding the severity, type and timing of an abnormal power quality event enables users to better analyze trends and more effectively manage a facility’s power quality health.
