Inspecting Solar Panels with UAVs

New video to show you featuring a FLIR thermal imager mounted on a UAV inspecting solar panels for damage.

This application of infrared thermography has come a long way and now, with a new aerial perspective, is an extremely efficient tool for maintenance and quality assurance inspections of solar systems. In contrast to time consuming traditional methods, large solar installations can now be inspected quickly from the right distance and view point.

Even with these advancements in the technology, however, a thermal imager still does not have the ability to detect problems on its own – you still need a qualified operator with the right knowledge and skills to use it properly.

That’s where ITC can help with training and certification! Check out our website for a complete list of course locations and dates now available through September 2016.
