Power generation, transmission and distribution systems are costly, difficult and dangerous to work on. Drone programs are employed to accomplish missions efficiently and cost-effectively. The Autel EVO II Dual 640T for line inspections, substation inspections, is capable of performing faster, safer and more accurate inspections and audits while minimizing safety risks and simplifying data collection.
Powerline inspection is a task that requires the use of specialized equipment and expertise to ensure it is thoroughly inspected. It's also a dangerous and challenging job, especially when the terrain is difficult to traverse and the weather conditions are not the most favorable.
Why Use Thermal Imaging Drones for Line Inspections?
Drones offer many benefits for power line inspections, the main one being that it reduces the need for workers to physically inspect these cables, thereby minimizing the risk of injury or electrocution.
Use drone inspections to spot problems and expedite repairs to power lines, poles, substations, solar panels, and other assets without the need for large crews or expensive helicopters. Proactively monitor for right-of-way encroachment using predefined flight paths, enabling you to focus attention only where it is needed.
The thermal imaging drone for line inspection is more beneficial. The 640T thermal imaging drone can accurately monitor the problems existing in the power line through different thermal palettes and temperature measurement modes. Compared with the drone Visual inspection will be clearer and clearer.
Benefits of thermal drone for line inspection
The thermal imaging drone 640T can use multiple temperature measurement modes to accurately measure temperature to perform multi-point inspections to identify hot spots, corrosion and other defects. Autel EVO II Dual 640T has an 8k visible light camera and a 640*512 thermal imager with a maximum 4x lossless zoom. Use the aerial zoom camera to observe complex components at close range and identify recalled or faulty components.
The power sector prevents unplanned blackouts and system failures by using drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras to inspect and maintain power lines. As an advanced thermal imaging drone, Autel EVO II Dual 640T adopts a thermal imaging lens with a resolution of 640*512, and 10 thermal color palettes can be displayed to find and solve problem areas faster.
Aerial inspections and audits using thermal imaging drones require less manpower, time and equipment, effectively cutting project costs significantly.
Aerial drone inspections enable inspections to be completed in minutes rather than hours, while data analysis and transmission are automated. Detect, evaluate, and fix problem areas faster than manually collecting data.
The drone can be piloted remotely. As a folding drone, the 640T is small and flexible, and can be easily maneuvered to enter the most dangerous and difficult-to-reach terrains or locations. Flying a quadcopter drone into hard-to-reach areas can effectively reduce the operator's own risk. Electricity workers are statistically one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, with roughly 20 fatalities for every 100,000 workers working on power line maintenance.
