Bender Develops Monitor for Subsea and Umbilical Cables
Electrical safety solutions specialist Bender has launched new isoHR685W-D-B LIM for subsea cable insulation monitoring.
The ISOMETER iso685 is a insulation monitoring device used worldwide in unearthed IT system [AC, AC/DC and DC power supply applications].
Bender has focused on enhancing capability of iso685 with a new generation of insulation monitoring devices which exactly meet the needs of customers within challenging industry sectors.
The latest addition is the isoHR685W-D-B, designed specifically for subsea cable monitoring.
The isoHR685W-D-B monitors subsea and umbilical cables to provide earlier advance warning of cable degradation and failure. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry sector.
According to the company, the isoHR685W-D-B continuously monitors cables up to 10GΩ, delivering a huge performance improvement compared to previous versions, and offering very accurate synchronisation of up to 100 isoHR685 to limit cross cable disturbance between long parallel cables.
Earlier warning of a developing cable fault gives operators the breathing space to repair/replace and continue extracting from that subsea well.
