BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Delta Thermal is an industrial Internet of Things (IoT) company focused on one thing: We keep stuff from blowing up. We do this by finding hotspots in equipment before it’s too late to fix them.

The hotspots we are focused on today are found in electricity transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment. In the electrical grid that delivers electricity from a power plant to an industrial consumer. There are many places we could help, but we focus on substations and downstream switchgear cabinets that distribute electricity directly to industrial consumers.

Delta Thermal’s ThermalSafe cameras offer an economical, secure, and scalable solution to detect maintenance issues with T&D gear in substations thus enabling reliability of systems for utilities and savings in replacement costs. Our Mosaic product extends this capability into the switchgear that is essential for delivering electricity to your facility. Mosaic is a small IoT device about the size of a hockey puck. It uses a small thermal camera to continuously collect heat data and then analyze that data in the AWS cloud. It’s called Mosaic because it enables using many small pictures to get the big picture.

Problem

T&D transformers and switchgear are expensive …
