PRY-CAM Asset Tracking & Monitoring System


For data-driven power

Our customers always need to know more about the conditions of their assets and are becoming more and more data-driven. Our mission is to gather data and classify them so that they can be analyzed by automated diagnostics systems.


PRY-CAM is a breakthrough technology that allows online, accurate and reliable measurements of key parameters (Partial Discharge, Distributed Temperature, Distributed Acoustic, etc.), diagnosis and defect localization from remote. The data that we can gather are manifold: conditions of use, malfunctioning, overheating. All in real-time and with no specific expertise.


Thanks to a private cloud-based system built around our monitoring technologies, today we have a database that hosts more than five million measurements that had never been classified and stored before until Prysmian did it. Prysmian also aims to integrate electronics and photonics within cables, as it used to be and to have a growing number of accessories, components, and devices integrated within cable systems for continuous online monitoring.

Asset Monitoring

The worlds of monitoring, condition assessment and asset management of electrical systems are undergoing a revolution that can help prevent failures and service interruptions, increasing uptime and safety, enhancing assets longevity and significantly reducing maintenance costs and risks.


It’s a revolution that harnesses the extraordinary possibilities of the Internet of Things, and where key parameters measurement and condition assessment data can be collected and stored via private Cloud, to be accessed and shared remotely, allowing effective maintenance strategies for electrical assets and learning for continuous improvement.


PRY-CAM is faster, more data-driven and more effective than before, solving problems today and delivering learning for tomorrow. It’s a fast, flexible, reliable game-changer and a breakthrough technology paired with a suite of electronics and photonics-based products that allow online measurement and data gathering of key parameters without service interruption.

Key Features


The private Cloud platform hosts all measured parameters that are analyzed based on the most advanced protocols. For Partial Discharge (PD) automatic diagnosis, PRY-CAM uses a proprietary artificial intelligence algorithm: PRY-CAM BRAIN™.

The analytics function also generates real-time alarms whenever a critical condition or a malfunctioning occurs.

You can also have virtual access to Prysmian PRY-CAM experts for remote advanced diagnosis.



  • Suitable for any electrical equipment from 3 kV to 600 kV
  • Suitable for AC and DC
  • Suitable for cable systems, transformers, switchgear and electrical machines

Fixed Monitoring Solutions


To face the growing challenges related to the complexity, reliability, safety and continuity of supply of electrical systems, our customers are becoming more and more data-driven, requiring the support of an extended, powerful and actual database.

Portable Monitoring Solutions

PRY-CAM PORTABLE is an integrated portable instrument for the automatic acquisition, processing and classification of pulse signals generated by PD phenomena occurring in insulating materials of medium- and high-voltage electrical systems and equipment, such as transformers, electrical machines, cables systems and switchgear. It provides an instant snapshot of the conditions of the object being monitored, that is easy and immediate to read thanks to a red-yellow-green traffic-light-like visual interface, based on a proprietary artificial intelligence algorithm.


Every single PD measurement can be saved alongside other useful details, such as pictures, recorded messages, GPS coordinates, notes and tags. You can choose to store your data on a private cloud platform for future data retrieval and analysis. You can also have virtual access to Prysmian PRY-CAM experts for remote advanced diagnosis.
