Martin Stanley is Co-Founder and Director of UC Data Limited which is a further example of his innovative approach to making mature systems efficient through the use of new technology.
UC Data Limited has developed a state of the art video capture system which allows for visual inspection of overhead line fittings without the need to climb or de-energise the system.
The UC Data “Survey Lance” uses the latest in wireless technology to capture high quality Video and stills images capable of detecting potentially serious defects in overhead line conductors and fittings,
in addition to identifying decay or damage to wood poles, without the need to leave the ground, or to de-energise the line.
The specially designed camera system is contained within a section of Insulated Rod, designed to fit to the top section of insulated rods already in common use on the network, allowing live line work without the risk of electrocution.
