EXACTER Sensors are added to existing helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft transmission line survey vehicles, or EXACTER commissioned survey vehicles. As the vehicles fly along the transmission routes the EXACTER Sensor and specialized antenna arrays collect, locate, and correlate RF and EMI emissions to the EXACTER Failure Signature Library and provide mapped location information.
Exacter converts utility GIS files to roadway paths or routes. These paths are driven by Exacter Surveyors in vehicles equipped with patented EXACTER Sensors and a specialized antenna array. RF/EMI data from the surveys is correlated to the EXACTER Failure Signature Library. The emission sources are located using GPS technology as the survey vehicle moves along the route. Acquired data is uploaded to Exacter Servers.
Final data analysis is completed by EXACTER Data Servers and mapped results of failure emissions are created. Exacter Field Engineers provide photographic evidence of structures and components identified.
Exacter Field Services provide a complete RF/EMI/Ultrasonic review of substation equipment, locating emission sources that indicate weakened or contaminated components.
Vaults and Cabinets
Exacter Field Services work with the utility to provide a RF/EMI inspection of vaults and cabinets. EXACTER patented sensor technology is used to locate partial discharge or emissions that indicate cable, insulation, and equipment damage or contamination.
