Challenges in offshore cable connection monitoring

Most power cable faults can be traced back to issues with terminations, where jointing and earthing can be vulnerable to degradation over time. Monitoring current and temperature in the terminations and screen connections allows diagnosis of nascent issues which can be addressed to mitigate or minimise faults.

Our solution

Cable Connection Monitor (CCM) is a simple and powerful solution to enable health monitoring of cable junctions and terminations, without any requirement for power supplies or data networks along the cable array. Using Synaptec’s passive and distributed current and temperature monitoring technology, CCM delivers real-time, high-quality data on the cable screen earthing points, termination temperatures, and ambient temperature. Customisable threshold alarms and live measurement data are easily integrated with existing SCADA systems, giving wind farm operators awareness and actionable information on the health and status of terminations.
