Mounted Corona Camera Core

RAILeye HD is a corona imager based on a UVc detector and a HD visible camera for inspecting electrical railways. RAILeye HD 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.

RAILeye HD is a high definition, highly sensitive to UV, bi-spectral corona camera with Ofil’s proprietary DayCor® technology inside. RAILeye HD pinpoints corona sources, visualizes them, records and transmits findings in real time to a remote receiver or a monitor. Due to its remarkable sensitivity & resilience RAILeye HD is an excellent choice for fast moving inspection of overhead high/jmedium voltage grid lines and electrical traction. RAILeye HD fits well in narrow compartments and can be mounted on fixed or moving mounts.

RAILeye 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 etc.

Users of RAILeye HD benefit from:

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

Beneftits

ENJOY ENHANCED INSPECTION FEATURES

RAILeye HD Field of View (FOV) can be adjusted per inspection scene. The FOV is selected from a wide to narrow combinations of optical and digital states. The selected FOV affects the dimension of the scanned area.

HIGH SENSITIVITY TO PD UV DISCHARCE

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

RECORD INSPECTION AND DOCUMENT FINDINGS HD QUALITY

RAILeye HD records High Definition videos and presents the resulted footage with the count of encountered corona events, date & time and GPS. Videos are stored internally onto a portable memory and transmitted to a remote monitor.

REMOTELY CONTROLLED

RAILeye HD is controlled through a set of communication commands: RS232, Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

EASY INSTALLATION

RAILeye HD fits into narrow compartments installed on a static or moving standard ¼” thread tripod mount. Installation is simple and standard.

HIGH SPEED INSPECTION

RAILeye HD transmits HD video on-the-fly, without image processing nor frames integration. The resulted videos are sharp, showing pinpointed information without smearing, even during high speed motion.
