Attached to an insulated hotstick, the HighV Camera™ is protected within a weatherproof, rugged housing for safe inspection of assets from overhead lines to underground vaults. It enables examination of contacts and connections, name plates on installed equipment, and monitoring of gauges, meters and levels. Its 10x zoom allows extreme close-up images that can help utilities and others speed up fault finding and root cause analysis, as well as identify potential issues before they impact operations.

The low-light capable, high-resolution camera has on-board LED lights, provides 2 hours of continuous use on a single battery charge, and comes with a sturdy case for infinite portability. The camera offers a uniquely affordable opportunity to minimize downtime and outages while literally getting close-up views of high voltage equipment condition under load, in real time.
