Q: What is your recommendation on critical connections to monitor with the Hot Spot Monitor?

A: Always prioritize by the most critical power systems within the facility and branch out as budget permits. It will vary from application to application, but in general we recommend prioritizing load side first followed by line side and field termination connections.

Shipping splits are also potential failure points that can be monitored and if there are open connections on a unit, an ambient temperature measurement to get the Delta T is a good idea.

Reach out to your local sales rep or Grace directly if you would like help determining the best points to monitor within your facility.
