All of our gas monitors work around the clock to provide you with data that is accurate beyond industry standards.
The monitor sends that data to your Transformer Dashboard® and to our engineering team, and any deviation from the norm is flagged for review.
If our engineers determine that there is an imminent threat to your system, we will contact you immediately. Expect clear options and a realistic plan on what to do next—and no false alarms.
Armed with detailed data and insight from SDMyers, you’ll know what steps to take to keep your operation running with the least amount of downtime possible.
five decades of reliability expertise
With more than 50 years of transformer management experience, we focus on keeping your transformer running so you can stay focused on what you do best—maintaining and improving your entire operation.
From help selecting the monitor that best fits your needs, to setting alarm parameters appropriate for each transformer, through close monitoring of those levels to keep your equipment running, day in, day out… we’ve got this.
Avoid COSTLY false alarms
We know that every transformer is unique. Our engineers use an alarm philosophy that accounts for the transformer’s manufacturer, model, history, application, and age. We set alarm parameters so that we alert you only when there’s an issue that needs your attention. No more, no less.

Immediate alerts on critical transformer faults
Hydrogen accompanies most known transformer faults, which makes this single-gas monitor an excellent indicator when there is an issue developing inside your transformer. If the monitor detects a significant spike in H2, the specifics of the fault can then be determined with a full Dissolved Gas Analysis profile and an array of chemical, mechanical, and electrical testing to reveal the specifics of the fault.
Diagnose critical transformer faults as they happen
This five-gas monitor’s capability to detect methane, ethylene, and acetylene allows us to use industry-standard analytical tools to diagnose faults. Hydrogen is an essential component of any monitoring system because H2 accompanies most transformer faults. Carbon monoxide can indicate degradation of the paper insulation.
Utility-grade DGA technology for mission-critical transformers
A nine-gas monitor samples and measures all gases that are needed for a full DGA and provides information on specific sub-faults. Elevated levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are indicators of cellulose degradation. High levels of oxygen can accelerate the oxidation and decomposition of paper insulation. This monitor imparts a full DGA profile of the gases inside the transformer at a high frequency, which offers more data for trend analysis.
