Specialized Camera Sales

Corona cameras for detecting corona or arcing during daylight or lowlight are sold, rented, or leased in North America by Specialized Camera Sales division of Ox Creek Energy Assoc Inc. a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB) which imports, distributes, sales, and service for specialized cameras including infrared, visible, and ultraviolet for lowlight, laboratory, and solar-blind dayight corona inspection.

Corona Camera sales, rentals, leasing, corona camera training, corona training are all available at Specialized Camera Sales with 46 years of corona inspection experience.

The critical voltage of corona inception is dependent on many factors, learn more in the Corona Technology Course. Partial Discharge is a form of corona, a material can have an internal flaw or bubble with discharges which distort the electric field in the air above the defect and if the electrical field is intense enough the discharge may be observed in the air. This can be an indication of failure potential.

Corona inspection is used for design, analysis, and on-going inspection. A tool to identify future failure points due to electric field caused corona nitric acid deposits, ozone aging deterioration, and deposition of airborne chemicals.

Outdoor applications for corona cameras include: transmission line inspection, distribution line inspection, substation inspection, switchgear inspection, HV motor / generator winding inspection, electrical test laboratory, aerial or UAV or vehicle or hand carried, powerline inspection for damage, sources of losses, outage causes, CoroCAM is the right daylight corona camera.

Indoor applications for CoronaFinder low-light corona viewers include: HV electrical test labs, switchgear inspection, HV motor / generator windings inspection, semi-conductor manufacturing, ... CoronaFinder is a low-light, low-cost, short-distance corona viewer with optional digital or video cameras for image storage / viewing.

New CoroCAM 6D options include the Low-Light Sensitivity, the UV Sensitivity Calibration Check (set up ISO program and define "corona free level" in your specifications !), Corona Power on-screen, and more ! The CoroCAM 6D allows quantified and corona-free inspection to verify claims, see the spec's in the CoroCAM 6D brochure The CoroCAM 6D now has an 18-month warranty. The CoroCAM 6N is a new low-light only high senstivity (1x10-18w/cm2 sensitivity) corona camera for laboratory use, LED's make the best ambient light for corona inspection facilities to prevent UV snowstorms and reflections.

Schedule your CoroCAM 8 demo of the new infrared, daylight corona, high resolution visible camera as shown at the IEEE-PES show in Chicago 2014.

The fastest, most reliable development is happening with UViRCO Technologies. The CoroCAM 504 design has served since 2005 as the benchmark of solar-blind technology and reliable corona cameras.

The CoroCAM corona camera family is now built by Uvirco Technologies and across North America sold and serviced by Ox Creek Energy since 2001, Reliability and Service. The family of ultraviolet viewers and daylight corona cameras enable users to locate ultraviolet emissions and image the background in color concurrently in the visible. Solar-blind cameras are typically bi-spectral meaning they have two cameras (one visible and one ultraviolet looking at the same field-of-view). Using a camera that can image the solar-blind wavelengths enables the cameras to see ultraviolet emissions (corona, arcing, flames invisible during daylight) during bright sunlight. and overlay them precisely on the visible color background. Call toll-free 1-800-531-6232 to discuss your application. The CoroCAM 504 is the world's most capable bi-spectral camera with exclusive day-light and low-light corona imaging in one camera. This low-light capability also makes the CoroCAM 504 the most sensitive and most versatile corona camera available, with external SD card image and video storage, an eyepiece viewer to help in brightest sunlight, and "intuitive camera operation" is a common comment. The CoroCAM 6D was introduced in 2012 to fill a need for high resolution, high sensitivity imaging in substations, from a helicopter, usually distances of less then 200 feet. The CoroCAM 6D has a LCD display, 640x480 UV resolution, on-board SD card for image and video storage, intuitive camera operation. The CoroCAM 8 is a tri-spectral ( long-wave Infrared+color visible+solar-blind ultraviolet ) hand-held camera which shows the heated and arcing damaged areas with the corona. With the push of one button the UV can be overlaid onto a visible or infrared image. Then store each image with GPS coordinates for location and an audio clip to describe the problem in CoroBASE software. Call toll-free 1-800-531-6232 to discuss your application and to arrange a demo.

Syntronics Inc. develops and manufactures UV Viewers and systems useable for many applications. The Syntronics CoronaFinder model offers low-cost, low-light corona viewing. If your application can be viewed in a low-light or light-shielded or best is an LED lighted environment this viewer may work for you. Applications for UV viewers are electrical inspection, re-inspection after a repair, forensic police or fire, HV instruction courses, installation and methods of assembly, Quality Control, electric motor or generator windings inspection,... The optional digital camera or digital video camera can be used to view or share live video to another location or record real-time video. Different wavelength filters can also be furnished for field installation on the CoronaFinder to change or limit the UV wavelengths observed to meet your applications. Call toll-free 1-800-531-6232 to discuss your application and arrange a demo.

The Corona Technology Course was presented 6 times in the US and Canada with video made of the course presentations. Mr. James R Booker EE-PE in 14 hours presented the high voltage technology related to the who, what, where, when and why of corona on electrical conductors, insulators, bucket trucks and other assemblies from his 30 year utility career including 15 years of field troubleshooting and outdoor high voltage test lab experience at the AEP-ASEA HV Lab. Dan Ninedorf presented the test equipment and common problems caused by corona and arcing in the field from thousands of corona and infrared camera demos. A dear friend to many, Jim passed away and is saluted in memory at the website www.corona-technology-course.com and the course is now available complete on three DVD's with the course book for $250 US, postage included in the US. This a great resource for all who are starting to try to understand high voltage, corona, arcing, there causes, how to prevent them and after lightening or other reasons how to find the problems. It's pretty much true there are no new problems, just new problem solvers who need this training to do the job right.

Contact Specialized Camera Sales at 1-800-531-6232 or (920)255-5510 or by email to discuss your special imaging application (typically non-visible) and we can package a system to meet your needs, along with camera operation training and specialized infrared or corona technology training.
