Substation Thermal Camera


The risk of outages is increasing on the electric power grid due to its aging infrastructure and lack of automation systems that monitor the condition of critical equipment at substations and along the grid. Transformer fluid leaks or insulation breakdown cause overheating that is a warning of potential failures, but many utilities don’t have automated thermal detection systems that can help reveal these problems.

Continuous thermal monitoring systems are able to anticipate, detect, and respond rapidly to problems, thereby reducing the chance of failures, outages and lost productivity. Detection of temperature increases in substation equipment with thermal monitoring cameras allows preventative maintenance operations before an unplanned outage occurs due to asset failure.

The Systems With Intelligence thermal monitoring solution includes a substation hardened digital video server (DVS) that digitally records video from multiple cameras and incorporates a suite of sophisticated video and thermal analytic algorithms for detection of anomalies. The DVS includes software tools for video monitoring and analysis, features flexible networking capabilities and provides automated alarm and event notification.
