INDS-U3, the Drive-By Primary Distribution Overhead Inspection System, is the most advanced version of ultrasonic detection methods for power facility.
INDS-U3, the Drive-By Primary Distribution Overhead Inspection System, is the most advanced version of ultrasonic detection methods for power facility. INDS-U3 is the only patented inspection system that uses the ultrasonic technology that allows users to detect degraded equipment in a moving vehicle that can travel as fast as 30 km per hour. INDS-U3 captures ultrasound that is being emitted by faulty equipment with a pinpoint accuracy by using the state of art technology as far away as 30 meters or about 100 feet from the object.
The system enables distribution engineers to detect and replace faulty equipment before they fail, which offers utilities to proactively prevent any potential costly outages. The analytical diagnostic software provides engineers the level of degradation of faulty equipment that allows engineers to plan distribution asset management with ease.
Since the product and service offering in 2008, INDS-U3 and its predecessor Inspector 101, INDS-U3 have been implemented and used by utilities in Korea (Having inspected 16,305,837 distribution poles for 192 KEPCO branches from Jan.2009 to Dec.2017) and other countries (Having inspected 923,800 distribution poles in U.S, Brazil, New Zealand, Mexico, Jamaica, Philippines, China, Nigeria, Laos, Iran, Indonesia and Malaysia).
Area Detector is a durable and light weighted device. This device captures ultrasound emitted by faulty equipment with the state of art sensing technology. (Embeded 5X optical lens) It is engineered to minimize the surrounding noises and capture the ultrasound being emitted by degrading apparatuses.
The main unit
Through precisely engineered composition of the main device, there are absolutely zero mechanical interruptions between parts. This leads to a drastic improvement to the device’s measurement accuracy. INDS-U3 became further accurate and sensitive in detecting visually unidentifiable faulty equipment as well as pinpointing the exact part that is causing the problem. Adding to this, camera housing and slick body design with diamond black surface adds to the user satisfaction.
