Across the country, the frequency of manhole events is on the rise. A manhole event occurs when flaws in the aging electrical infrastructure in a manhole vault or adjacent structure interacts with dangerous gases, causing smoke, fire or in the worst cases, an explosion. For utilities, the most responsible approach to forego these disasters is to have a plan in place that proactively monitors each individual manhole vault using scientific equipment and data analysis to deliver alerts and critical, time-saving and life-saving information. Real-time, active manhole monitoring solutions use sensors to detect gases, temperatures, water levels, electrical discharge, movement, light and humidity.
