Electric Transmission Line Inspection

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


Customer's Challenge

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


However, electric transmission lines are usually built on 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 ground, it might lose thermal accuracy or straight running out of thermal pixels to clearly distinguish anomalies.


The Solution

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


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


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



The Result

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


Proper maintenance can be then carries out according to these reliable maintenance inspections, and ensure prosperity of millions of household.
