Professional Solar Blind Corona Camera

Download the CoroCAM 7 brochure HERE

The CoroCAM 7 is a professional grade solar blind, easy to operate UVc imaging system used to visualize & locate electrical discharges (corona and arcing) from HV hardware. The CoroCAM 7 features the same CoroCAM solar blind UVc imaging system as used in the CoroCAM 6d®, but pairs it with a high performance visible camera and a viewfinder. The CoroCAM 7 is typically used to inspect HV infrastructure operating at 3.3 Kv and above for corona discharges and arcing.

  • A high resolution focusable ventilated viewfinder (800 x 600 pixels) and a large, robust mounted, variable angle, colour LED backlit LCD display (640 x 480 pixels), both optimised for use in full daylight to make inspection comfortable
  • A high sensitivity detector, which can detect UVc emissions down to 2.05 x 10-18 W/cm2, this allows for the detection of the smallest corona discharges
  • UV count compensation for distance
  • Motorised solar blind filter removal in Non Solar Blind Mode to increase sensitivity for use at night or indoors
  • Users can select optimised presets for detection or location of discharges
  • Corona signals above the threshold level are displayed in realtime
  • A high zoom colour visible camera with a resolution of 768 x 576 pixels
  • Syncronised UV & Visible Zoom from 1x system zoom (defined as 8°x6° / 10° Diagonal) to 4x system zoom (optical for the Visible channel and digital for the UV channel)
  • Onboard still image and video recording in high quality formats
  • Integrated GPS with internal and booster antenna
  • Integrated high power flashlight
  • Easily replaceable Li-ion batteries deliver up to 3 hours operating time Additional batteries are readily available and lightweight
  • Fast boot avoids the need for power saving modes
  • User profile setup, save and restore
  • Easy operation of the camera with one hand via a multifunction keypad, hot keys to specific functions
  • Ethernet port for remote control
  • The On-Screen Display (OSD) shows all the relevant information
  • Camera software update via download to SD card
  • A 18 month warranty, extendable to 36 months
