After extensive testing, Siemens Energy relies on the G-Log 2 transport data logger from ASPION for worldwide transport monitoring of high-voltage circuit breakers.
For circuit breakers of type 8VN1 Blue GIS ™, the G-Log 2 tests compliance with transport conditions for shock and vibration in accordance with transport standard DIN EN IEC 60721-3-2. Not only the flexible handling but also the simple and cost-effective commissioning by presetting were decisive for the choice of the G-Log 2. "The sensor is easy to mount and has a very low weight. In addition, you don't need any further expensive calibration as with some other transport loggers," praises Heike Steigert, test field engineer at Siemens Energy.
The statement from Siemens Energy in full length:
"After extensive testing, we recently started using the Aspion G-Log 2 sensor to monitor the global transport of our circuit breakers. The data logger has the ability to select the transport class 2M4 to 2M6 according to IEC 60721-3-2 Ed. 3.0 standard. If thresholds within a transport class are exceeded, these events are recorded and marked in red. This has the great advantage that it can be quickly recognized whether the standard has been complied with or not. Expert knowledge is no longer required.
The shock data logger can be easily read out with any smartphone. The data can be sent by e-mail. This helps us to quickly assess the transport regardless of distances. The sensor is easy to mount and has a very low weight. In addition, there is no need for further expensive calibration as with some other transport loggers."
