Drone Powerline Inspections

FulcrumAir Patrol replaces manned aerial patrol programs and requires no software suites or gigantic data files and storage; FulcrumAir Patrol simplifies these programs with faster results. We achieve these results using a FulcrumAir UAS (drone) that collects the asset information. A qualified lineman will then review the data and deliver a detailed report on the asset identifying any anomalies or points of interest. By using automated flight planning, patrol programs are quick and repeatable, which provides a collection of historical comparisons and aids in preplanning asset management. FulcrumAir Patrol reduces risk, delivers a useable product, significantly reduces costs, and is an important tool for regular maintenance planning to protect the reliability of your assets. All robotic and UAS systems used are designed and engineered in North America and meet the security requirements of the largest North American utilities.

FulcrumAir Patrol

Gather High-Resolution Images

FulcrumAir Patrol UAS gathers high-resolution images of all structures, lines, and right of way using the latest in camera technology.

Generate List of Deficiencies

The collected images are interpreted and categorized by experienced linemen at a computer, rather than in the air, and a detailed report is delivered to your specifications.

Recommend Action Items

Create a more simplified and useable database to easily assess, monitor, and plan asset management and maintenance.

Powerline Robotics & Drone Applications

Heavy-Duty Equipment For Drone Powerline Inspections & Bird Flight Diverter Installations

E7500 Series

The E7500 series drone is our robust heavy-lift drone, optimized for short to medium flights carrying heavy payloads. Powerful enough to lift the LineFly robot, the E7500 effectively replaces helicopters for bird flight diverter installations. It’s the perfect machine for all heavy-duty applications.

Bucket Truck Lifting

Drones may not be necessary or practical for every job. When installing bird flight diverters near aerodromes, in urban environments, or on busy stretches of roads, a bucket truck can lift the LineFly to the wire. This process allows us to complete installs in flight-restricted locations, still eliminating the need for helicopters and reducing safety-risks to linemen without the additional cost of a drone.

LineFly

The LineFly is FulcrumAir’s proprietary device for installing bird flight diverters. We’ve perfected the engineering and manufacturing of the LineFly to be the world’s safest and most efficient method for installing bird flight diverters. It can install 24 precisely spaced (±5cm) line markers in 3 minutes with no lives put at risk.

E2500 Series

The E2500 series is the best drone for powerline inspections. Drone powerline inspections reduce time spent by in-field data collectors and produce more accurate and reliable information. Equipped with LiDAR, RGB, and thermal cameras, there’s almost nothing the E2500 cannot do.
