Pry-Cam Portable works with your iPad with the Pry-Cam App available on App Store. It can be operated in three different operating modes to allow you the maximum flexibility.
The three different operating modes allow you to get more and more information required to fit with your expectations and PD expertise level. Temporarily moving from Basic to Advanced to Premium modes allow to satisfy any needs with one single instrument.

Whenever you want, every single PD measurement can be saved together with many useful details, such as pictures, recording messages, GPS coordinates, notes and tags.
You measure, you test, you control.
Every single PD measurement, together with pictures, videos, recording messages, GPS coordinates you wish to add during your PD testing, are safely stored and protected on Pry-Cam Cloud. By accessing into your member area you can remotely check, analyze and upgrade your own PD measurements and get advanced insights, such as data statistics.
Increase reliability of your MV & HV assets
Reduce maintenance costs moving from preventive to condition based-maintenance
Increase asset longevity
Partial Discharge testing was never widely used as a powerful on-line diagnostic tool because of several limitations of the traditional PD technologies, such as:
hand-held ultra-sound / acoustical instruments are not sensitive enough to detect and localize small but critical defects
PD instruments based on field sensors were too expensive and complex to be operated by non PD Expert
Defect detection and localization can not always be performed on-line
Pry-Cam wireless technology allows to safely perform PD measurements during normal operation thanks to the galvanic isolation.
It allows reducing the required time (up to 70%), while providing the highest sensitivity on small PDs (down to 0,5pC), the highest accuracy (100MHz bandwidth) and the strongest noise rejection.
