We help the electric power industry operate & maintain the globe’s largest infrastructure in the most efficient, reliable and cost effective manner possible.  This is our contribution to helping the world utilize our precious energy resources most responsibly.

Our specific role is to create the most effective diagnostic software available for assessing and tracking the condition of high voltage apparatus. With early and accurate detection of apparatus fault conditions, our customers are better equipped to manage risk, reduce system losses, improve reliability and maximize return on investment of their high-value assets.

Interpreting apparatus test data is complicated, so Delta-X invests in the research and development of statistical and computational techniques for apparatus condition assessment.  With a sound scientific basis for interpreting test data, our products provide accurate and timely insights into the condition of critical assets, so the electricity system can be operated safely and reliably at peak conditions and maintenance teams can be deployed most cost effectively.  Furthermore, priorities can be established to replace or upgrade aging assets in a manner that optimizes capital budgets.

Delta-X is a private company founded in 1992, and is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
