GE is pleased to announce the latest member of the Hydran family of single gas transformer DGA solutions. The Hydran M2-X offers enhanced monitoring with extended sensor life for utility and industrial transformers. GE has been delivering field proven online DGA solution for over 40 years, with over 50,000 Hydran units sold worldwide.

Key Highlights Include:

  • Extended sensor life – Estimated sensor life in excess of 10 years*
  • Expandable functionalities - Compatible with natural and synthetic ester based fluids. Available with the traditional Hydran composite gas (H2, CO, C2H2, C2H4) sensor or with a discrete Hydrogen only (H2) sensor and can be used to monitor other key transformer parameters
  • Real-time monitoring – By providing critical transformer gas behavior data for Asset Performance Management (APM) strategies, facilitating planning of site intervention and maintenance activities

*Fuel cell sensor life projection based on accelerated aging test showing estimated MTTF of 11.5 years
