Innovative solution for the detection of UV emissions
The design with emphasis on high functionality allows detection and monitoring of corona, arc and surface discharges in the power industry. It is a method for ongoing analysis of the technical condition of equipment, for example HV lines, and for locating problems before damage or major breakdowns occur.
UV-260 is a high-end, professional, yet lightweight and intuitive device, allowing for simple and fast remote diagnosis of installations without the need to interfere with their operation. Due to its latest generation imaging system and highly sensitive UV detector, the product allows events to be observed and recorded under both visible and UV light. In addition, images can be saved as photos or videos.
In the case of complex and extensive testing of power systems, i.e. power lines, it is a major problem to determine the potential failure area accurately. This is why Sonel has opted for a comprehensive solution. UV-260 has a built-in GPS receiver, recording the location of the photo or video taken.

The design, placing emphasis on high functionality, allows for detection and monitoring of corona, arc and surface discharges in power engineering. This is a way to continuously analyze the technical condition of equipment - e.g. an HV power line - and locate problems before damage or serious failure occurs.
The UV-260 is a high-class, professional, and simultaneously lightweight and intuitive device enabling quick and simple remote diagnostics of a system without interfering in its operation. Thanks to the latest generation of imaging system and highly sensitive UV detector, the product enables observation and recording of events in both UV and visible light. In addition, the image can be saved in the form of photos or video clips.
In the case of complex and extensive energy systems examination, i.e. power lines, a big problem is to pinpoint a potential failure area in an accurate way. That is why Sonel has opted for a comprehensive solution. UV-260 has a builtin GPS receiver that registers the location of the taken photo or video.
