Power Line Insulation Inspections with an Airborne Twist

Inspecting power line insulation can be anything but easy. However, thanks to some fascinating advances in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) or drones there is a creative new way folks are inspecting power lines. In an October article from EC&M, the publication talks about how drones are boosting profitability for businesses and making visual equipment and systems inspection easier. The next wave of innovation may come from thermal imaging attachments for drones, which can inspect from aerial views that buckets cannot get to as easily. PMC will keep tabs on these technological advances right here on our blog.
