Case Study: Critical Electrical Infrastructure
"Thermal images have long been used as a method of security monitoring due to their ability to identify the presence of warm bodies in the absence of visible light. More recently however, thermal imaging has been used as a solution to monitor the condition of electrical equipment due to its ability to reveal early signs of potential malfunction in the form of overheating that are not detectable by the human eye. In this way equipment can be monitored regularly from a remote point making the job safer and more efficient. The combination of these capabilities makes thermal imaging an ideal solution for monitoring an electrical substation.
Due to the high cost and low resolution of thermal imagers, fixed or pan-tilt thermal camera systems suffer from the need to compromise between field of view and range. Ocular Robotics RELW60 long wave thermal imaging system with its embedded RobotEye technology delivers the best of both worlds. The system’s unprecedented combination of speed and precision allows the expensive thermal pixels to be concentrated in a small field of view to provide long range, while at the same time enabling the rapid and precise directing of the camera’s field of view over a wide area."
