Effective and safe non-destructive remote testing UV detecting solutions turn out to be cost effective. Corona signals are eye catchers and as soon as they are detected they cannot be ignored. Behind each signal hides an issue that occasionally means “need repair”. Yet, in most cases, UV radiation serves as early warning signs, and at that stage faults can be repaired at low cost.
HV laboratories investigate faults’ chronology. Setting up the lab is costly and time consuming. Using corona cameras during the first phase of research can lead to a direction where and what to investigate. Furthermore, PD measuring equipment cannot pinpoint and show the critical points of emission. Corona cameras fill it this gap, instantaneously and extremely accurately.
Rotating machine workshops substitute the pitch black dark room during their investigation with a daytime corona camera that allows them to get to improved results under regular light, and helps them mark findings that were spotted by the camera.
During commissioning, contractors use the camera to ascertain that their work was fulfilled correctly.
Manufacturers of components use the camera to show customers that their components are corona free.
Utilities use the camera to avoid litigations due to corona audio noise.
