Electric Transmission Line Inspection

Any electrical failures in an electric transmission system can cause huge losses. The Fotric 348A handheld thermal camera offers full-range solutions in this industry and excels at accurately measuring and analyzing an object’s temperature from afar.


Customer's Challenge

The performance of electric transmission systems is directly linked to the livelihood of millions of people. The result of electrical failures on transmission lines could vary from the significant monetary loss of the power station to the blackout of millions of households and facilities. It is therefore imperative to keep track of the transmission system’s condition.


However, electric transmission lines are usually built about 30-70 meters above the ground. Direct contact inspection on high-voltage transmission lines is risky and highly inefficient.


While, if a normal non-contact thermal camera is used to perform inspection from the ground, it might lose thermal accuracy or straight run out of thermal pixels to clearly distinguish anomalies.


The Solution

The Fotric 348A handheld thermal camera with 640x480 IR resolution, 40 mK NETD, image contrast autofocus, and superior imaging algorithm, offers full-range solutions in this industry and excels at accurately measuring and analyzing an object’s temperature from afar.


FOTRIC 348A with a 7° lens is the perfect inspection tool designed for 500KV/220KV transmission lines, while a 12° lens is for 35KV/10KV transmission lines.

Besides, its ergonomic hold design, 128GB storage card, 4 hours battery life, and IP54 housing make it highly compatible with long-duration maintenance tasks.


The Result

Geared with FOTRIC 348A and a telephoto lens, our clients can safely and easily detect and analyze temperature anomalies at different sections of electric transmission lines like the strain clamp or the high-voltage insulator.


Proper maintenance can be then carried out according to these reliable maintenance inspections, and ensure the prosperity of millions of households.
