THE WORLD'S SMALLEST CORONA UV CAMERA USING PROPRIETARY UV BAND PASS TECHNOLOGY
DayCor® Scalar is a handheld UV corona camera designed to complete indoor electrical inspections. Scalar is a non-destructive testing (NDT) instrument used for measuring conditions of both HV and MV electrical systems and finding flaws associated with partial discharges. DayCor® Scalar displays real-time images of corona and arcing sparks emanating from their discharging sources.
Companies using DayCor® Scalar rely on it for:
DayCor® Scalar uses patented DayCor® technology and is instrumental in keeping locations safe that are prone to arc flash and sparks, including switchgear cabinets, mines and dusty enclosed areas.
The camera is highly accurate, displaying captured images of both UV and visible channels with an overlapping precision of 1 milliradian. This level of detail, along with visible zoom and UV magnification boost capabilities, guarantees pinpointed corona findings.
LIGHT, COMPACT, ERGONOMIC
DayCor® Scalar is the world's smallest and lightest corona inspection camera weighing only 0.9 Kg (2.0 lbs). It has an ergonomic design to maximize ease of operation with just the use of your thumb. The control layout is intuitive, stylish and features an icon-driven menu for ease of use.
MEDIA RECORDING & PLAYBACK
DayCor® Scalar features a removable flash card for storing video clips and still pictures. You can view stored media on the camera's LCD screen or an external monitor via a mini USB drive.
LARGE 4.3" TRANSMISSIVE LCD
The camera's 4.3" transmissive LCD with a high backlight of 600 nits and 800x480 px resolution displays crisp, vivid images of inspected areas.
Multiple operation profiles can be set up to accommodate for various conditions. While you are completing inspections, selecting the most appropriate profile for your needs is a simple and quick process.
SAVES TIME, CUTS COSTS
Seeing both the authentic scene and pinpointed emitted corona in real-time speeds inspection times, cuts labor costs and aids in analysis.
An integrated LED flashlight with 2 brightness levels makes inspecting cabinets, motors and absolute dark spaces possible. The flashlight also improves safety conditions and allows working in variable indoor lighted conditions.
