Permanent condition monitoring

Thermo Observation RFID

The requirements for personal and system protection in the distribution of electrical energy are increasing across all industries – worldwide. Products and systems that efficiently organise supply security and economic efficiency are in demand.

With a high level of energy market expertise and experience, KÖHL develops technologies that often become pioneers on the energy market. The latest product from the KÖHL innovation centre is TOR – the “Thermo Observation RFID”. It monitors and visualises the load status of the system caused by “heat stress”.

TOR simplifies your maintenance measures, can be retrofitted and is the most advanced solution for energy-efficient operation. TOR was developed in co-operation with the Fraunhofer IPMS institute. Designed as a TAG with an integrated high-performance chip and associated reader and DiPol antenna, TOR transmits precise information about the heat balance and potential sources of faults in the system. These can be conveniently accessed using a mobile phone via the KÖHL app, for example.

Features/functional principle

TOR is fixed to the screw connections of the busbar systems.
TOR transmits precise information about the system’s heat balance in the UHF range.

The information can optionally be called up permanently using a mobile phone via the corresponding KÖHL app.
