Kappa's field-proven SGC camera systems fit all substation viewports, on medium- and high-voltage, gas- and air-insulated switchgear, hybrid switchgear, GCB, and generators. The Switchgear Camera Digital (SGC-Digital) can be networked to provide views from multiple switches or breakers in a substation so that an observer at a central location can select any view. SGC-Digital can be mounted to a wide variety of viewports or to an individual switch using a corresponding adapter in order to fully visualize the disconnector and earthing switch positions. SGC Digital is available as fixed installation of the camera or as a quick ‘plug and play ‘camera for on-demand viewing. Fixed camera installations of 2 to 400+ cameras are available in user-programmable configurations, from stand-alone, to 24-port or 8-port switch applications. The lens and LEDs are specifically chosen and arranged to obtain a sufficient field of view with minimum reflection and beam shaping at the viewport glass. SGC digital transmits a HD live stream with a frame rate of 30 fps. The image resolution is 1920x1080. Due to its primary purpose, safety, the camera processor analyzes whether the image coming from the sensor is live. In case of a frozen image, an overlaid rectangle in the image turns red. The system is available as IP65 rated solution for outdoor plants.
