ThermalSpection™ 724 system

Automated, continuous thermal imaging system for remote and automated early fault detection in substations and industrial sites

Key Benefits

  • Automated, continuous thermal monitoring of substation for performance and safety
  • Early and remote fault detection
  • Monitor newly installed assets or older assets after maintenance to identify risk for infant mortality or faults
  • Continuous monitoring without personnel constraints
  • Replace error prone manual inspection process with more rigorous and continuous automated monitoring
  • Identify transient thermal events not detectable with manual inspections
  • Remotely monitor multiple, distant substations and assets from a central location
  • Automated analysis with built-in industry-standard analytics
  • Integrate into existing control systems via standard protocols

Details

The ThermalSpection™ 724 system allows you to continuously monitor the temperature profile and long term thermal trends of assets within an electrical power substation remotely. It helps you detect temperature deviations from normal operation conditions to ensure safe and reliable operations.

The system consists of thermal and visible cameras mounted on a positioner with continuous 360° pan range and tilt range of ±45°. A junction box with all of the necessary hardware for power and data transfer is also included. This allows for quick access to the camera’s thermal readings and configuration options. Fixed image cameras and pyrometers can also be added to the system.

Applications

  • Substations and electrical switchgear monitoring of bushings, isolators, breakers, capacitor banks, busbars, and transformers
  • Industrial and petrochemical pipelines monitoring for leaks
  • Fuel storage facilities monitoring for hot spots

System Components

TS724DV-PT: Pan-Tilt Thermal Imager

  • Includes thermal camera, visual camera, and a pan-tilt positioner that is controlled remotely using LumaSpec™ RT software.

  • Weatherized enclosure with a solid state cooling system for reliable, long-term installation.

  • Rugged pan-tilt positioner allows for a 360° continuous rotation on a ±45° tilt axis

  • Temperature Measurement between -40°C and 500°C

  • High Resolution 640 x 480 Pixels

  • Ease of installation is designed into the system with each camera including a stainless steel junction box and a substation hardened 4.5 m (15’) umbilical cable to easily connect camera to box.

Optional Components:

 

Combine these items into a unique asset condition monitoring system to remotely control, monitor, trend, archive, and alarm on thermal deviations.
