CoroCAM 8 Introduction

CoroCAM 8 Specification CoroCAM 8 Operation CoroCAM 8 Training

In April 2014 UViRCO Technologies introduced the CoroCAM 8 at the IEEE-PES Conference in Chicago. The CoroCAM 8 is fully radiometric, high-resolution visible, high sensitivity ultraviolet for daylight corona inspection and a weight of 2.5kg hand-held, helo, or UAV/UAS. On-site demonstrations of the CoroCAM 8 can be scheduled now at 800-531-6232 or by email at cameras@maqs.net Specifications and mounting details are available. Shipments begin in August 2016. Increase your inspection productivity with CoroCAM 8. Please contact me for the latest specifications, images and video clips. The CoroCAM 8F model is designed for pole-top or UAV mount and integration to the internet for remote control and video capture.

In 2007 CSIR introduced the MultiCAM, the worlds only multi-spectral handheld camera capable of imaging daylight corona and overlaying it onto infrared or with the push of one button overlaying the daylight corona image onto a color visible image. This lightweight camera (at 7 lbs with 2 hour battery) weighs less and does more then any competitor camera.

MultiCAM Images

This daylight corona overlaid onto a visible image shows corona at the insulator, or on the conductor, illustrating how important viewing angle and zoom are.

Infrared image of a transmission tower insulator V string, llustrating how important viewing angle and zoom are. The camera can zoom to see only the area in corona.

Visible image of a transmission tower insulator V string, llustrating how important viewing angle and zoom are. The camera can zoom to see only the area in corona, the corona UV Gain can be decreased to pin-point the UV / corona source.

Where is this transmission tower ?

Corona on a wire stub or the cap of the arrestor is broken, but the arrestor to the left is completely broken with no corona or infrared indication. Also note the GPS coordinates to "locate" the problem.

A daylight corona image of a non-ceramic insulator (NCI) showing the corona due to lack of a corona ring on the insulator. This corona will destroy the NCI insulator due to ozone and nitric acid attacking and depositing in the aged insulator surface resulting in arcing and eventually mechanical / structural failure of the NCI. The NCI expected lifespan is 80 years, under these conditions maybe 10 years to failure. Also note the "see thru" corona indication that allows seeing the corona source.

This daylight corona overlaid onto a visible image shows corona at the ceramic insulator and on the hardware. The corona is shown in one of 8 selectable colors with the MultiCAM, which helps identify the problem by contrasting with the background.

This is an oil refinery flare stack about 5 miles away, at reduced UV gain overlaid onto a visible image, providing much better definition of the UV source.

The MultiCAM has been toured, demonstrated, and was exhibited at shows across North America since July of 2007, getting user feedback and exhibiting world-class technology. The objective in developing this type of camera combination is to save time and get the complete picture/understanding of the problem in one viewing and record the test results with GPS coordinates on the image. The intuitive on-screen menu is selected and adjusted by a jostick combo.

When the competitors can't offer "time saving technology" and can't give you the complete understanding of the corona or arcing problem, they must not understand what you really need. Competitors offering excuses that "what if one camera fails" may have a high failure rate experience for there product? UViRCO Technologies continues to build the latest technology and Reliability into there Corona Camera's based upon field use feedback and laboratory testing, see the spec's.
