How smartCOUNT works
smartCOUNT monitors your surge arrester’s condition and detects typical arrester failure modes – simply and clearly. And it is much more affordable than the worst case.
Just install the smartCOUNT App on your NFC featured Android phone, pick up the automatically logged data and know what’s going on – before it’s too late.
The smartCOUNT Cloud offers the total overview about the connected surge arresters and their according data. The cloud can be accessed from any web-connected device. The smartCOUNT Cloud provides the calculation of the resistive leakage current component based on the 3rd harmonic current values.
The smartCOUNT Datalogger acquires the surge arrester leakage current in adjustable cyclic intervalls. It stores 1000 records which include date, time, temperature, 3rd harmonic and peak /2 current as well as 1000 discharge current records.
The smartCOUNT Transponderpad allows communication between the datalogger and smartphone app via near field communication.
The smartCOUNT App provides different functions for user account handling, configuration and data download of the datalogger. Data can also be conveniently uploaded to the smartCOUNT Cloud here.

Monitoring surge arresters – why?
Surge arrester affected by surface pollution, humidity ingress or ZnO degradation
The surge arrester is not capable to protect the connected primary equipment
Lightnigh strikes into the power line
Unprotected primary equipment breaks down
Avoidable outtage, maintenance cost and penalties
The affected surge arrester was identified by smartCOUNT
The surge arrester was exchanged and protects the primary equipment again
Lightning strikes into the power line
The primary equipment is protected by the surge arrester
Big savings due to healthy surge arresters – monitored by smartCOUNT
Your surge arresters protect primary high voltage equipment against damages from overvoltages. Todays surge arresters are highly reliable protective devices. Anyway a low percentage of surge arresters might suffer from serious unseen problems like degradation, humidity ingress or surface pollution, which can cause unexpected outages and immense maintenance cost. smartCOUNT will make your substation more reliable.
Reliable means here:
- Less unplanned shutdowns
- Less scheduled maintenance effort and
- Safeguarded protection of the substation equipment
