Altanova Falcon, Medium Voltage PD monitoring.


FALCON provides an economical solution for continuous monitoring of partial discharge in Medium Voltage equipment that allows to determine the deterioration if the insulation and thus, the eventual worsening of the health condition of the electrical asset before fatal breakdown.

FALCON proposes a novel approach to the continuous monitoring of the PD phenomena occurring on an integrated network of Medium Voltage equipment.

Such approach is implemented by addressing the solutions to the requirements of the Medium Voltage grids in terms of non-invasive, low cost and fully automatic PD data acquisitions and elaboration, with the relevant assessment of the conditions of the Medium Voltage equipment.

With onboard computing power and data storage combined with a web-browser interface, the unit can be reached from anywhere in the network allowing to analyze PD data and historic trends with very low data traffic.

Easy installation and auto-setting reduces significantly installation times.
FALCON provides automatic acquisition and elaboration of PD data, as well as automatic noise rejection and the recognition of the increasing PD trend.

FALCON incorporates patented T/F-map technology.

The hardware is provided with ultra-wide bandwidth acquisition system, which collects both PD pulse peak and phase, as well as PD pulse waveforms.

The pulse waveform allows the information coming from the pulse shape to be employed. Per each acquired pulse the acquisition unit automatically calculates its time and frequency content, building the so called “T-F map”.



A FALCON KIT comes with a sensor, a synchronization kit and the web application.
FALCON is a plug & play device, that can be installed with only a few simple operations.
It configures itself automatically and, once powered, it is immediately operational.
Another important advantage of FALCON is its capability to be easily integrated into an existing monitoring system.
FALCON supports the IEC 61850 protocol.
The FALCON Unit is equipped with two magnets which allow the unit to be installed directly on the panel of the switchgear or with a DIN rail, for a different type of installation.
