Gimbals for Aerial Inspections

Benefits of Camera System Inspections

  • Gyro-stabilized camera system installed on a helicopter
  • Evaluate equipment reliably and efficiently
  • Ensure uninterrupted power
  • Avoid costly failures and shutdowns
  • Postpone previously scheduled maintenance of equipment found to be in good condition
  • Verify new equipment installations to establish a baseline for future inspections
  • Save more money – fly faster, collect data, analyse on the ground
  • 40-60 Knots per hour (75 – 110 km/hour)
  • 6 hour flight time per day (including refuelling and ferry flights)
  • 445 to 670 kilometres per day
  • Evaluate equipment reliably, efficiently, and without disruption to operations
  • Ensure uninterrupted power
  • Avoid costly failures and shutdowns
  • Postpone previously scheduled maintenance of equipment found to be in good condition

Typical Specifications

Radiometric Infrared camera (8-14 μm wavelength)

  • Detects “hot spots” – able to provide a temperature reading.
  • Infrared faults are current dependent.

UV detection camera (240-280 nm wavelength)

  • Capable of producing video images of the energy generated by the corona phenomena.
  • Corona faults are voltage dependent.
  • Solar-blind: visualize corona in full daytime.

HD Video camera (400-700 nm wavelength)

  • Visual documentation of faults detected by the IR and/or UV cameras.
  • Documentation of faults typically seen by the eye; missing signs, broken isolators, etc.
  • Right-of-Way

Mega Pixel Photo camera (400-700 nm wavelength)

  • Visual documentation of faults detected by the IR and/or UV cameras.
  • Documentation of faults typically seen by the eye; missing signs, broken isolators, etc.
