The Iris Power AGTracII is an efficient tool for online monitoring of the air gap. It uses low profile capacitive sensors designed for accurate distance measurement. It provides complete real time analysis, alarm management and trending and can provide protective functionality.

The Iris Power AGTracII system is a machine monitoring system capable of monitoring air gap, and processing parameters. The system can be used to capture the data as a permanent online monitoring system with protection capability as well as being used with a computer to view and analyze data in real-time during commissioning, operation and/or maintenance.

The air gap system is comprised of air gap sensors, sensor signal conditioners, sync sensor, continuous monitoring instrument and diagnostic software.
