The DayCor Superb is the most sensitive Corona Camera available. It is equipped with the proprietary Ofil-Lindner Solar blind Bandpass filter that only let the Corona UVc through! The filter eliminates all interfering solar UV radiation. This produces an extremely quiet solar noise background making the use of max sensitivity possible. The DayCor Camera detects the weakest Electrical Corona radiation.

We only rent the highest sensitivity corona camera available. Use it and find and pinpoint corona sources with ease.

The DayCor Superb has more than twice the sensitivity compared to the next competing Brand.

    The Solarblind Ultra Violet (UVc-band) Corona and Arcing Inspection is a Solid Detection Technology for Electric Utilities to Pinpoint High Voltage Problems. Also for use by other companies with High Voltage Applications.

    It is a complementary technology to the Thermal Infrared heat detection and is superior to the Ultrasonic technologies.

    Electrical Corona Detection is not dependent on the current (I) loading of a circuit or line. It detects the Corona event due to the breakdown of the High Voltage electrical field on components due to contamination, faulty insulators or missing Corona/Grading rings etc.

    Detection of Electrical Corona, Partial Discharge and Arcing problems is one of the very important means available to improve the reliability of the Electrical Grid and its components.

    Contaminated High Voltage Insulators and Bushings can lead to flash-over and downed circuits. We recommend that you use our DayCor Superb UVc Corona Camera to confirm the need for washing and to prove that the wash was effective! These video clips show a highly effective wash!

    Below is shown extemely serious Corona Discharges on 35 kV High Voltage cabling in an indoor substation. The failing insulation everywhere makes this a very dangerous situation!

    This Inspection/Recording was made by Eklund Infrared by Jan Eklund. This was an extremely dangerous location and a full flash protection insulated suit was needed in this tight area of the substation!

    The Indoor Substation was subsequently completely rebuilt

    The state-of-art DayCor UV Corona camera is capable of detecting Electrical Corona and Arcing phenomena and pinpointing their sources under all lighting conditions, even on the brightest day. It is 100% Solarblind!


    The DayCor SUPERB UV Corona Detection Cameras are available for rental on a Daily, Weekly or long term basis.
