"[LiveWire Innovation] delivered and demonstrated a unit which we immediately used to accurately locate a cable fault on one of our sub-sea 5 KV cables. Prior to this we had used conventional TDR meters which had given us unreliable results and showed ghost signals which could have indicated additional faults that didn't exist. The cost implications of this are huge."

-Mike Mason, Dubai Petroleum

At the base of LiveWire Innovation's cutting edge technology, the ASIC (Application-specific integrated circuit) detects and locates intermittent fault conditions in high noise environments in real time.

Product Features

  • Small form factor easily integrates into existing products
  • Reduces maintenance costs for existing assets by pinpointing the location of intermittent fault conditions during live operation
  • Increases the LTV of assets by keeping them in service longer and with fewer problems
  • Increases safety and reduces downtime
  • Works on systems of all types and sizes (power, communications, sensors, etc.)

Product Description

The LiveWire ASIC integrates with your technology to reduce maintenance/troubleshooting/monitoring costs, increase system reliability, and extends the useful life of assets by providing accurate real time monitoring. LiveWire’s unique core technology is Spread Spectrum Time Domain Reflectometry, or SSTDR. The technological foundation of digital cell phone communications, spread spectrum is used to transmit a small but nevertheless recognizable signal in a high noise environment. By combining spread spectrum with TDR technology, LiveWire has achieved a significant breakthrough in being able to monitor changes in wiring systems, in real time. Changes that occur for as brief a time period as one millisecond can be detected, characterized, and located (distance to fault) within an accuracy of +/- 2% over a distance of less than a meter to thousands of meters.

"Schnieder Electric has been actively engaged with LiveWire in testing and vaildating their technology. We are very excited about the commercialization potential and are actively engaged in discussions around potential product intergration as we see strong potential for the technology in the Utility industry. LiveWire has been a good partner and has provided excellent on-site and remote support through this process. We look forward to a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with LiveWire."
