The CoroCAM 8 is a combination of a radiometric FLIR® thermal LWIR camera, a solar blind UV camera and a high specification Sony visible camera.
It can be used to inspect High Voltage infrastructure operating at 3.3kV and above.
The CoroCAM 8 is intended for use by professional High Voltage infrastructure inspectors. The combination of these 3 cameras makes it possible to do both thermal IR and UV inspections at the same time, saving time and effort. Co-location of electrical discharges and hot spots give the inspector more insight into the cause of a fault.
The FLIR LWIR camera delivers high resolution radiometric information. The LWIR 640×512 pixel module is fitted with a 10.4° × 8.3° FOV F/1.25 lens which is optimal for overhead infrastructure inspections.
The CoroCAM 8 features a solar blind UVc imaging system similar to that used in the CoroCAM 6D.
Advanced UVc image enhancement features are available to increase sensitivity (adjustable Long Integration & Non Solar Blind Mode*), reduce false signals (adjustable Noise Reduction & Threshold Level) and improve the visibility of the discharge indicating blob (adjustable Background Priority, Blob Transparency and Blob False Color). This world class UVc imaging system is paired with a high zoom Standard Definition visible camera, allowing it to achieve an IFOV (Instantaneous Field of View) of 0.0477mRad for it’s visible channel, when recording UCF files.
UCF files are used to record the uncompressed displayed, raw UVc & radiometric thermal images, the camera settings and calibration values in one file, which can be imported by the CoroBASE Analysis and Reporting software.
