The CoroCAM 6DF is a variant of the CoroCAM 6D Corona Camera and has been optimised for fixed installations. CoroCAM’s are used to inspect HV & MV equipment for corona and arcing activity.

Enclosure

The CoroCAM 6D internals are mounted into a rigid aluminium body designed to be weather proof. The body parts have been anodised silver and white to minimise solar heating. The body has mounting points for easy attachment to brackets, pan and tilt systems or attachment of an optional weather-shields. Custom weather-shields and brackets available on request.

Remote Control and video streaming

The video stream and camera control commands are communicated via an Ethernet connection to a stand-alone (if used in a vehicle) or Networked (if remote tower mounted) PC. The video stream can be viewed and recorded on the PC, using the CoroBASE Remote Control Module. Alternatively customers can integrate the control protocols into their own control software.

Quick Startup

60 seconds after application of power the video stream starts and the camera will accept commands from the remote PC.
