Dynamic Ratings advanced design and precisely implemented transformer monitoring, control and communication systems provide users with many benefits.
Smart Menu Buttons
Summary Status LEDs
Swing Panel Mounting
The display provided is connected to the main control via a single connection. The user display can be installed in a readily accessible location such as on a swing panel. This allows all control and monitoring connections to be made directly to the main control assembly typically installed on the back panel of the control cabinet. With this approach, the critical control and monitoring connections are not subject to stress when the swing panel is opened and closed.
Multi-Level Password Management
A multi-level password management system provides the appropriate level of access to different user groups. The responsibilities for each user group can be defined by the user.
Full Numerical Key Pad
Secure password entry and setting changes are made faster and easier with a full keypad. Audible feedback is provided following each key stroke to help prevent entry errors.
Weather Resistant Design
Since the swing panel of the transformer cabinet can extend out past the cover of the control cabinet, the installation of the main control on the cabinet’s back panel provides additional protection from rain, thus protecting both the main control and all the connections.
The user display will withstand ambient temperatures of -40°C to +85°C and its operating temperature range is -20°C to +70°C. For more extreme operating temperatures, the remote user display option is recommended.

Easy access to alarm details provides:
Remote User Display (Optional)
A rack mount LCD and keyboard combination provide a convenient way to view monitored hardware status in a control room. The remote hardware does not utilize a PC operating system. Therefore, it eliminates security and operating system maintenance issues. A dedicated communication line (PCS, fiber, wire or wireless) is used to display and navigate the graphical pages served by the Dynamic Ratings control.
A single remote screen may be used to view the information on one or more monitoring systems. The system can be specified to use a touch screen, trackball, touchpad, pressure sensitive pointer, or stand alone mouse. For control rooms where rack space is limited, a folding LCD display is available.
Quick and Easy Data Download
USB ports with auto-detect feature allows files to be easily downloaded directly to a USB drive.
Setup and Configuration
Connection for setup, configuration or downloading files can be made using either the USB ports, Serial, Copper Ethernet or Fiber Ethernet ports.
Links to other Peripherals
The USB type B ports allow the use of USB data connections to other smart sensors (IED’s).
Ethernet Link Via Copper or Fiber
Ethernet link supports simultaneous SCADA communications and multiple connections for the built-in web pages.
Self-Maintained Hardware Clock
Real-time hardware clock provides time and date stamped data storage and event recording. The clock can be synchronized via DNP, Modbus, NTP and is maintained when the SCADA link is down or the control is powered off.
System Health Alarm Contacts
A Status relay provides an indication of loss of power or monitoring system failure.
Non-Volatile Data Storage
1 gigabyte industrial flash card provides non-volatile data storage at user defined intervals.
