High-Power Underground Cable Monitoring in the Big Apple

Underground utilities are “the power” beneath large cities. They feed the metropolises with electric power, gas and water. Failures in this sensitive infrastructure are costly.

To permanently monitor the temperature along a 220kV power circuit connecting Manhattan (East Harlem) to Queens, USI Power selected AP Sensing’s outdoor DTS instrument. 

USI Power uses continuously measured temperature data to feed their Real Time Thermal Rating (RTTR) software which in turn optimizes the use of this critical asset.
