Objective

The objective of the Switch Doctor is to provide a periodic reading of the temperature at specific joints on a High Voltage Switch. The data recorded by a temperature sensor passes to the MAX3188 then, it will be processed through a microcontroller. The microcontroller will then transfer the data to the Wi-Fi board, and the Wi-Fi board that will update the real time data to computer which will then log the temperature readings provided by each sensor. The utility company will then be able to act based on the data received.
