Electroshield Samara introduced a new video surveillance system of the withdrawable element and earthing switch in the switchgear and control gear cubicles as part of the product digitization program. Using the new video surveillance system enable to achieve operational advantages of smart cubicles as it enables full remote monitoring and control over the withdrawable element and the earthing switch. The new video surveillance system ensures maximum safety for the maintenance personnel, as digital substations are operating without technical staff due to the remote control function. The feature of the surveillance system and motor drives for the withdrawable element and the earthing switch in the switchgear and control gear cubicles is optional. “Electroshield Samara is investing large sums of money into developing a new generation of substations with automatic systems and M2M technologies. We have already prepared a range of projects in this field: a video surveillance system for the equipment (CCTV systems), the switching device for remote control, etc. Developing automated systems provides for measurable financial and economic effect, because modern automatic control systems increase efficiency, reliability and functionality of substations, and also contribute to overall safety of maintenance personnel,” Vladimir Andronov, Head of the Product Development department at Electroshield Samara, said. Electroshield Samara has already successfully delivered several new video surveillance systems. The equipment will be shipped to the substation in January 2019.
