In normal operation, the DGA monitor performs measurement cycles automatically without any operator involvement. Integration with a SCADA system is recommended for convenient monitoring of measurement results and system status. Status LEDs on the cabinet door indicate system status on a general level, and detailed status is available from the browser-based user interface.
For successful operation:
- Keep the doors of the DGA monitor cabinets closed and locked during normal operation. This keeps the inside of the DGA monitor clean and the measurement environment stable.
- Keep the measurement running continuously to achieve the best measurement performance.
- If the DGA monitor will be unpowered for a long time (due to a transformer maintenance, for example), set the system to Standby.
- Check that the power supply unit (OPTPSU) is on and that it is installed as instructed in OPT100 Installation Guide (M211857EN).
