CoroCAM 8

Combined IR and Corona imaging camera

Download the CoroCAM 8 brochure HERE

The CoroCAM 8 is a combined thermal IR, solar blind corona and video camera. It features a high spec Sony visible camera, a radiometric FLIR thermal IR camera and a solar blind UV camera. The CoroCAM 8 is intended for use by professional HV inspectors. The combination of these 3 cameras makes it possible to do both thermal IR and UV inspections at the same time, saving time and effort. Co-location of electrical discharges and hot spots give the inspector more insight into the cause of a fault. The CoroCAM 8 can be used to inspect HV infrastructure operating at 3.3kV and above.

  • A high sensitivity UV detector, which can detect UVc light at 2.05×10-18 W/ cm2, this allows for the detection of the smallest corona discharges
  • A 9Hz FLIR Radiometric IR camera module with a sensitivity of NEdT
  • Syncronised Smooth Zoom of all 3 camera channels. IR & UV channels are zoomed digitally, visible is zoomed optically
  • Manual or Auto focus for Visible and IR channels, UV channel has manual focus or can be synchronized with either Visible or IR channel
  • Onboard still image and video recording in high quality formats
  • A 5.7” viewable area, robustly mounted, variable angle, colour LED backlit LCD display with 640×480 pixels resolution optimised for use in full daylight makes for easy inspection
  • Manual or Auto brightness control for LCD display
  • A fixed angle focusable viewfinder with 800×600 pixel resolution
  • Fast set up & boot up avoids the need for power saving modes
  • The On Screen Display (OSD) shows all the relevant information
  • Rotational handle (right hand only) with primary interface keys
  • Easy operation of the camera with one hand via a multifunction keypad
  • Access specific functions with Quick keys on the left side of the camera
  • Manual or Auto Exposure of Visible, UV (Gain) and IR (Level) cameras
  • Integrated GPS with internal and complimentary external booster antenna
  • Meta data recording of camera settings and measurement plus environmental variables manually entered – distance, air temperature, air pressure, ambient humidity and wind speed
  • Freely resizable and positionable UV Intensity sampling box
  • UV overlay colors has 6 pre-sets or 255 selectable hue levels
  • UV overlay translucency control
  • UV threshold and Integration control
  • 15 IR color palettes with contrasting Isotherms
  • Auto or Manual IR Span
  • Laser pointer and integrated LED Flashlight
  • Camera software update via download to SD card
