Finally, an easy way to detect, locate and analyze partial discharge in one tool
Tired of spending too much time detecting partial discharge? Introducing the ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager, engineered to locate partial discharge, corona discharge as well as gas and vacuum leaks. The ii910 acoustic imaging camera's groundbreaking technology is a cost efficient, safe, effective, and comfortable tool for teams who inspect and maintain power distribution and industrial high voltage equipment.
The invisible threat….now you can see
Partial discharge is a serious issue that teams monitor everyday. Whether you are scanning insulators, transformers, switch gears or high voltage powerlines you need to be sure that you spot a problem quickly and early. Partial discharge that goes unchecked can cause blackouts, fires, explosions, or death from arc flashes. In addition to the danger that this can pose to the environment and human lives, it also has a very steep price tag. Having equipment go down can cost millions of dollars per hour and studies have shown that a single data center outage could cost as much as $8,851 per minute. On top of this, the Department of Energy estimated that outages cost the US economy $150 billion annually.
This industrial imager offers a new way to locate issues using sound. It is an intuitive, simple to use tool that can isolate the frequency of leaks or vacuums, even in extremely noisy production environments. A leak location is determined by discerning the direction from which a sound originates by the time delays that occur as the sound passes over an array of microphones. A SoundMap™ is displayed in color over a visual image allowing for easy visual location. With the full array of microphones, it is easy to scan a large area and even capture leaks from a distance.
Finally a better way, quick, simple compressed air, gas and vacuum leak identification.
