Aerial thermographic inspections of roof tops and solar power plants.
- Quality improvement due to an innovative inspection process where high-resolution thermal images of the solar panels are seen from above where the whole area down to the finer details can be inspected
- Autonomous flight using GPS navigation
- Route planning (flight planning software)
- Visual inspection
- Seamless inspection protocol (post-PC)
- Time saving and more economical than conventional methods
- Modular system / copter and camera can be used independently
With the ultra-light, fully-radiometric infrared camera system specially developed for use on an UAV creates high-quality thermal images. With the live video package, you have full control over the image section of the infrared camera.
Defect analysis of industrial plants and buildings using informative thermal imaging from optimal angles.
Inspection of roof-mounted systemsThe use of aerial thermal imaging is an innovative and economical way of ensuring that the calculated return of a solar panel system is met. An examination immediately after commissioning of the system provides an informative reference for subsequent follow-up measurements. Only through aerial thermal imaging inspections can defects and inefficiencies be detected timely and cost effectively.
- Safety critical environment
- Access to the module can be burdensome and difficult
- Risk of falling from the roof
- To avoid electric shock, the system must be shut down for the period of the inspection period resulting in loss of production time.
- Early detection of faults on the solar modules (hot-spots)
- Optimal recording angle for thermal imaging
- No measurements on the current modules necessary
- Employees are not exposed to hazards
- Enormous cost reduction through the use of Aibotix X6
Thermographic UAV inspection of solar power plants
Aerial inspection of a solar power plant using a thermal infrared camera and the Aibot X6 UAV.
- Error identification from high altitudes through high-quality video
- Classification error by approaching the perfect shooting angle
- Orientation of defective solar modules
- Real-time telemetry to track the flight on a PC
- Subsequent analysis on PC
