Application Spotlight: Distribution Powerline Inspections

Improve Network Reliability with Thermal Imaging

If you don’t catch distribution powerline problems early, you may end up dealing with a costly outage that disrupts power to thousands of customers. That’s why regular inspections are necessary. But there’s a lot the naked eye can miss, especially when you can’t get close enough to what you need to inspect.

Equipment gets hot before it fails – regular thermal imaging surveys on distribution powerlines can give you a full picture of potential problems. Since the components you need to inspect are small and likely located out of reach, a high-resolution thermal imager or drone with a combination of infrared and visual payloads can help you detect potential problems quickly and accurately from a distance. Identify hot spots early so you can prevent failures before they occur, reducing the cost of maintenance and repairs.
