Each SmartDGA solution package includes a SmartDGA EZHub™ unit to make online DGA easy by simplifying installation and connectivity. As the hub for the system, the unit is capable of handling the power and communication needs for the entire solution.
Features of the SmartDGA EZHub unit:
- Single point connectivity for power and communications to SmartDGA® instruments
- Status light indicators for each instrument
- Internal memory for storage of collected data.
- Rapid data download using USB
- Simple face plate connections
The SmartDGA EZHub™ unit is the central node for the SmartDGA® system. The EZHub can support a Gauge instrument for the LTC and a Guard or Guide instrument for the transformer. All interface functions and interconnects are provided in the EZHub device as well as internal memory, and four (4) relays with bright LED indicators to indicate Caution, Warning, and Alarm gas level, rate, and ratio conditions. The fourth relay provides status information on the SmartDGA® system itself.
The SmartDGA® instrument collects DGA gas level data and stores it in the EZHub. The data can be transferred (via RS485 or Ethernet connections) from the EZHub and displayed on the DGA Viewer software running on a computer or on an iCore controller.

*For operating temperatures less than -20 °C, the cold weather cable is required. Additional eating of oil transfer lines may be required for operation in cold locations. The unit will generate a system fault if the mineral oil temperature is outside of standard fluid limits of -20 and 120 °C. For operating in environments where the temperature routinely exceeds 40 °C, the high temperature accessory is recommended to prevent premature aging and reduction of component lifetime. Temperatures are based upon air temperatures for unit installation in shaded location.
