For cost efficient inspection & maintenance cameras (for high resolution photos or Full HD Video), thermal- / infrared-cameras (thermography) as well as other sensors (gas detection etc.) can be used.

Possible applications for inspections are:

  • Power lines & poles
  • Wind turbines
  • Photovoltaic systems
  • Bridge facilities
  • Roofs
  • Oil and gas pipelines
  • Train paths
  • Complete industry facilities
  • Building fronts
  • Chimneys
  • Towers
  • Thermal analysis with thermal imaging camera

All images, positioning and flight data can be logged and analysed in detail.

 

Advantages:

  • Short shutdowns / inspection procedures
  • Quickly deployable due to minimized preparation and post-processing
  • Little inspection-costs
  • Assessment in real-time or via offline documentation

There are significant requirements to keeping industrial facilities operational and safe. Whether you are monitoring pipelines for potential leaks or responsible for keeping facilities safe and secure, real time situational awareness of your immediate surroundings is crucial.

With pre-planned flight paths, constant monitoring of pipelines and facilities is possible. With thermal cameras you can quickly detect potential leaks or discover trespassers 24 hours a day.

Within a few minutes inaccessible areas can be inspected and evaluated if it is safe to send in engineers for further investigation.

If you want to execute the maintenance with your own drone by yourself or rather by us within a service contract depends on your requirements - we will be glad to help your with this decision.

Inspection of high voltage power lines

Objective:
Inspection of overhead power lines with an intelligent flight platform results significant cost benefits in contrast to conventional systems (helicopters, industrial climbers, etc.)

  • Cost reduction because of lower personnel and operating costs
  • Reducing the inspection time
  • Improved quality due to high resolution images and different visual approach
  • Increase the safety due to unmanned flight platform and no danger to the staff

 

Field of application:

  • periodic checks
  • estimation of damage, detailed analysis of network error, etc.
  • analysis of grown plants around the routes
  • planing path

 

Flight characteristics and system operation

  • easy control of the copter
  • vertical rise parallel to the mast with stable flight characteristics
  • GPS positioning for photographs
  • if necessary separate user interfaces for UAV and camera
  • safety features: anti-collision, coming home in the event of losing the radio link
  • battery level monitoring with automatic flight initiation and resumption of the flight inspection
  • automatic distance control
  • automation of the inspection process

 

Recording techniques

  • high resolution digital images
  • thermographic images for hotspot detection
  • ultrasound
  • an image processing method for evaluation of error images

 

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)

  • electric fields
  • magnetic fields
  • pulse fields
