HD Corona Camera Core

RANGER- Eye HD is a corona imager that incorporates a UVc detector and a HD visible camera a combination  which enables seeing and recording corona discharges in daylight. Corona, which is invisible to the human eye, can be seen only with bi-spectral UV-Visible corona cameras. RANGER-Eye HD is a high definition, highly sensitive bi-spectral corona camera with Ofil’s proprietary DayCor® technology inside, capable of pinpointing corona sources, visualizing them, recording and transmitting in real time to a remote receiver or a monitor.

RANGER-Eye HD can be used as a stationary sensor mounted on a pan & tilt or motorized stand transmitting the view of a monitored area. It can also fit well into vehicles’ roof mounts and used for fast driven inspection of overhead grid lines.

RANGER-Eye HD assists in the diagnosis of medium/high voltage systems by locating deficiencies that are related to electrical fields, or caused by bad design, structural & mechanical problems, contamination, eroded insulation, loss of hydrophobicity and other.

Users of RANGER-Eye HD benefit from: 

  • Early detection of faults
  • Fast inspection results
  • Readable results displayed in high resolution video clips
  • Reliable data
  • Pinpointed information
  • In real time

Beneftits

HIGH SPEED LONG DISTANCE INSPECTION

RANGER-Eye HD detects and captures distant corona signals while on the move, without smearing the output footage and without missing corona events. Throughout inspection HD video is transmitted, in real time, without neither image processing nor frames integration, to a remote LCD. Videos are sharp, and clear, showing pinpointed information.

 

HIGH SENSITIVITY TO PD UV DISCHARCE

RANGER-Eye HD is a solar blind bi-spectral UV-Visible camera that incorporates Ofil’s exclusive proprietary DayCor® technology [Registered Patent EP1112459B1]. The camera provides reliable accurate data, showing the original occurrences of corona anchored to the emitters, operating continuously without overheating.

ENHANCED INSPECTION FEATURES

RANGER-Eye HD has a powerful optical and digital zoom for both visible & ultraviolet spectral ranges, and a  wide FOV for scanning larger areas.

REMOTELY CONTROLLED

RANGER Eye HD can be remotely controlled through a set of commands communicated via RS232 1GB Ethernet

EASY INSTALLATION

RANGER-Eye HD can be used both as a stationary camera and as a  camera for driven inspections. It is enclosed in a rugged durable electromagnetically shielded housing and has a socket for standard ¼” thread mount. 

HD VIDEO RECORDING & STORING

RANGER-Eye HD records HD footage. The video can be watched in real time on a remote HD monitor and saved  onto a locally onboard memory card. Recording include  corona events count, date & time and (if attached) external GPS and ambient temperature & humidity.
