DayCor® Scalar

scalar-double

Practical, Powerful, Precise, Affordable

The Ofil Daycor® Scalar Indoor Corona Detection Camera can be used to detect faults associated with partial discharge in high voltage and medium voltage electrical systems. It is a portable, handheld, non-destructive UV corona camera featuring patented DayCor® technology.  It can be used for the following applications:

  • Factory acceptance tests
  • Quality analysis of motors and generators
  • Testing manufactured components which are believed to be corona free
  • Routine maintenance
LES-ofil-DayCor®-Scalar-Corona-Camera

A compact handheld corona detecting camera for indoor use. Scalar is a visible-blind camera that fits artificially lit workspaces such as high voltage laboratories and workshops. Scalar is used for non-destructive PD detection tests performed on hi/med voltage installations such as switchgear, motors, generators etc. Scalar provides clear visual information about discharges that are invisible otherwise to the human eyes.

Scalar detects invisible ultraviolet photons that result from partial discharge processes and translates them into visible blobs. Scalar uses 2 optical channels that complement each other namely, UVb in the range of 310-320 nm and visible range. The camera is equipped with an optical filter, attuned to corona peak, that filters out non corona PD light. The transmitted corona PD light is then superimposed on the discharging object, displaying a true portray of the faulty specimens. DayCor® Scalar is a compact handheld camera with a wide field of view for testing nearby objects. The camera records video clips and snapshots of the specimens storing them onto an onboard SD card. Testing results are instantaneous and pinpointed DayCor® Scalar is an excellent cost effective inspection solution.

Features that deliver results

Discover hidden faults and see them on a wide deluxe transmissive LCD, with backlight of 600 nits, and resolution of 800X480 px sharp and clear. Record findings and use them as evidence.  Store video clips and still pictures onto a removable flash card and review them again to compare and trend. In darker compartments Scalar has it own built-in LED flashlight, while the command buttons are shining to ease their selection.

Small dimension big value
