Building on the versatile, high-performance ThermoView TV40 Thermal Imager, the Pan and Tilt is a new integrated system and housing accessory designed for remote temperature monitoring in substations and electric utility applications.
No aspect of modern society can function without power, so keeping the power distribution grid up and running is essential in order to maintain our day-to-day lives. As renewable energy sources continue to make headlines, traditional power utility companies are facing increased pressure to provide low-cost energy. This, paired with aging infrastructure, is putting additional stress on power generation facilities—which, if critical equipment fails, can ultimately disrupt power supplied to the grid.
Now more than ever, power facilities must implement solid temperature monitoring solutions to that can help to identify possible equipment failures, perform preventative maintenance, keep repair and replacement costs under control, ensure power is supplied to the grid without interruption, and more.
The Pan and Tilt can be mounted on a wall or pedestal and has the ability to rotate 360° horizontally and -40° up to 90° vertically – creating a multiple imager solution and larger field of view so you can continuously monitor temperature in difficult-to-reach places or compare multiple pieces of equipment, such as transformer bushings. The unit also features IP66-rated housing, protecting the thermal imager from dust and water in outdoor settings and harsher industrial environments.
