The invisible threat….now you can see
Partial discharge is a serious issue that teams monitor everyday. Whether you are scanning insulators, transformers, switch gears or high voltage powerlines you need to be sure that you spot a problem quickly and early. Partial discharge that goes unchecked can cause blackouts, fires, explosions, or death from arc flashes. In addition to the danger that this can pose to the environment and human lives, it also has a very steep price tag. Having equipment go down can cost millions of dollars per hour and studies have shown that a single data center outage could cost as much as $8,851 per minute. On top of this, the Department of Energy estimated that outages cost the US economy $150 billion annually.
Key areas to scan for PD
- High voltage powerlines
- Switch gears
- High voltage coils
Do it fast, Do it safe
The ii910 is the all-in-one tool you have been looking for when it comes to all of your leak and PD issues. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. Quickly scan the area or environment and get all the pictures/videos you need with the simple one button capture and large 7” touchscreen LCD. No additional tools or equipment needed. Without cumbersome secondary cables or devices needed, you have full mobility and greater flexibility to swap between detection of the leak/PD and fixing the leak/PD.
Fluke safety you can trust with performance you value
The Fluke ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager is the perfect tool for high voltage electricians, electrical test engineers, and grid maintenance teams that are constantly inspecting and maintaining power distribution and industrial high voltage equipment. The ii910 provides a safe quick and easy way to detect and locate partial discharge in order to maintain high voltage equipment and prevent catastrophic events. With the SoundSight™ technology the ii910 translates the sounds that it hears into a visual representation so that you can quickly locate problem areas. The higher frequency capability of the ii910 allows for earlier detection to facilitate early maintenance planning that is why the ii910 has a frequency range of 2-100Khz.
Find and fix before flash
Partial discharge can cause a number of very serious and expensive problems from catastrophic equipment failure to lethal arc flashes. The only way to stop this from happening is to inspect and maintain the equipment properly. The ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager is built to make finding PD much more comfortable faster and easy. Gone are the days of wearing headphones and listening for very faint sounds or squinting at a small screen to locate issues. Everything you will need to locate issues from a large distance is in the ii910, no cords or other accessories hanging down and getting tangled. Simply pick it up, turn it on and start locating issues.
Safety you expect with the rugged product you trust
Safety is key when working on high voltage equipment and here at Fluke safety is all that matters, everything else is just a bonus. Due to the combination of specific microphone positions and a sophisticated algorithm the ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager can detect PD and Corona Discharge from 120 meters away. This means that you can stay even further than the required distance away while still being effective and efficient at finding all of the problem areas. With no external cords or dangling accessories the ii910 ensures that you wont get tangled up in any equipment as you do your rounds. In addition with the acoustic imaging technology being able to pick up reflections of sounds you don’t even need to have direct line of sight to locate a problem. This means you can locate PD without ever opening a cabinet.
Find it quickly, find it easily with no training
The ii910 is truly designed so that anyone can use it with little to no training. Tear up those certifications because you don’t need one to operate this tool. Simply turn on the ii910 with one button select your frequency range, or let the tool do that for you, and start scanning around immediately looking for PD or leaks. Once you find a concerning image of a sound you can take a video or a photo to be used later after you have added any text annotation. If you want to know more details about a specific leak or PD switch into PDQ or LeakQ.
