Enhancing Linemen Workplace Safety

IFD (Internal Fault Detector) is a highly effective mechanical sensor for pole and pad mount distribution transformers that detects and visually indicates the presence of an internal arcing fault. The IFD provides linemen with clear intelligent information reducing trouble shooting time on outages, and drastically improving risk decision factors by deterring linemen from re-energizing a faulted transformer. Engineers depend on the IFD’s maintenance free operation over the life of the transformer and its impressive return on investment to the utility. Field-proven with nearly 1 million units in service since 2002, the IFD is economical, simple and smart technology for your distribution system.
