The Global Standard for Aerial Thermography Inspections.
What is IEC TS 62446-3:2017?
IEC TS 62446-3:2017(E) defines requirements for testing, documenting, and maintaining photovoltaic systems and among those, outdoor thermographic (infrared) inspection of PV modules and plants in operation.
This inspection supports the preventive maintenance for fire protection, the availability of the system for power production, and the inspection of the quality of the PV modules.
This standard lays down requirements for the measurement equipment, ambient conditions, inspection procedure, inspection report, personnel qualification, and a matrix for thermal abnormalities as a guideline for the inspection.
Weather forecasts are used to plan the flights, while quality checks at upload guarantee IEC adherence.
Combined Data Sources
Easily combine data coming from different sources to get a full view of the environmental conditions.
Normalize to standard test conditions (STC) to compare across sites and through time.
Decide which anomalies and what information ends up in the report export.
Inspection routine, hardware specifications and environmental conditions are included.
High- and Low-level Insights
Region-based statistics are combined with a detailed analysis per module.
