WIKA brought its advanced technology designed to meet global sustainability challenges at the stand, including the FSFD flow switch, the in-house skid facility capabilities, and the WIKA “WEgrid Solutions” that enables power transmission and distribution operators to guarantee a safe and reliable energy supply.
Gaurav Bawa, Senior Vice President India Group at WIKA Group said, “It has been a rewarding experience at Elecrama, where the encouraging response to our innovative product range, has really provided important customer insights. Engaging in face-to-face meetings with professionals in our industry has been a delightful experience, as we reunite with old acquaintances and establish new connections. We are eager to continue learning about the businesses and understand the application of instrumentation.”
One of the major attractions at the WIKA stall has been the instrumentation for detecting SF6 gas used in Power substation. The smart instrument deals with the pressure, temperature and humidity and sensors in one transmitter. Gas density and dew point conditions are calculated. The new digital transmitter series is characterised by the aspects “Advanced technology combined with a robust design”. The new series transmitters will guarantee the highest possible operational safety for switchgear. SF6 gas online monitoring maximises equipment availability, enabling a predictive reliability-centred maintenance strategy. This is the corner stone for utilities to proactively manage the health of their SF6 gas-filled assets.
Fire Sprinkler Flow Detector or the FSFD flow Switch is one other product that captured attention. The FSFD Switch had an adjustable time delay mechanism to avoid false alarms during water surges, and tamper-proof covers prevent unauthorized access to the switch point setting. The product has IP 56/NEMA 4 ingress protection enables the instrument to be used indoors and outdoors with two sets of micro switches activate the control panel and local audible
