WiN MS has unique technology that can diagnose and monitor the health of a cable throughout the product lifecycle.
In Service: « Enabling technologies for safe and efficient system electrification and CO2 emission reduction »
Reducing carbon emissions from our vehicles (planes, automobiles, etc.), from our buildings and our industries requires their electrification. In this area, WiN MS technology makes it possible to secure and anticipate faults on more powerful and energy-dense electrical links. The first target sector is aeronautics, whose roadmap is now geared towards hybrid or 100% electric engine solutions. Moreover opportunities are already identified in the rail, automotive, construction and industry sectors.
The latest work by WiN MS has demonstrated the ability of the technology to detect electric arcs, brakes to the deployment of more powerful on-board electrical networks and a real show stopper of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) distribution
In service: « Electrical Wiring and Interconnecting System Permanent Health Monitoring »
In general, the integration of WiN MS technology in a new generation of sensors allows monitoring, at any time, of the state of health of on-board electrical networks as well as of complete infrastructures
In maintenance and production: "Fast wiring diagnostics & predictive maintenance"
WiN MS has a unique product portfolio for troubleshooting and inspecting all types of cables. Thanks to the immediate localization of faults, the tools offered by WiN MS ensure essential time savings for operators. They help reduce downtime and improve productivity. Coupled with powerful analysis algorithms, the data from WiN MS tools bring new benefits: Knowledge at regular intervals of the state of health of a fleet or installations, The ability to identify anomalies upstream and anticipate failures
How does it work ? A New Technology - MCTDR
WiN MS is based on reflectometry, a radar principle applied to the cable. A sensor sends an electromagnetic wave over the cable. This wave will be partially or totally reflected when it encounters defects or anomalies. Acquisition of the reflected wave makes it possible to detect and characterize faults. Measuring the round trip time of the wave makes it possible to precisely locate these faults. The characteristics of MCTDR (Multi Carrier Time Domain Reflectometry) which WiN MS inherited from CEA and which has benefited from more than 10 years of research are:
The ability to work over all distances: from a few meters to several kilometers
The ability to operate on active (working) cables without interfering with systems
The possibility of detecting very brief faults: intermittent faults due to vibrations or electric arcs for example.
