Use Case: Temperature Monitoring of Power Cable Junctions in an Underground Cable Trench

Narrow underground cable trench with high voltage cables (HT (6.6 KVA) and LT (400 V)). High temperature at the junction due to high voltage power. Currently no temperature measurement system in place.


  • Threat of fires due to high temperature cable junctions.
  • Customer wants to add temperature measurement points for plant safety.
  • High voltage cables generate high levels of electric noise.


  • Wireless temperature measurement
    • GWX1, Transmitter (YTA)x1
    • Repeater x1: between GW and YTA.
  • High quality wireless communication was confirmed. 
    • With repeater at center: The packet error rate was 0%.
