Companies Partner to bring mobile thermal imaging to solar inspection solution

Above has announced it has partnered with Bullitt Group, the global licensee for Cat phones, to bring a next-generation solar inspection solution to the industry, via Above’s smart-mobile application EyeSite, which excels when used on the Cat S62, an award-winning rugged smartphone designed for any work environment.

EyeSite is already widely used to streamline solar plant activity and provides a full suite of tools, including inspection management, task lists, serial number scanning and actionable reports. The partnership between the two companies brings together the use of mobile tools, mobile thermal imaging, and digital twins on one device to unlock solar plant productivity.

Equipping engineers on the ground with the EyeSite app on a connected thermal mobile device means streamlined thermographic and visual inspections, accurate location, and quick format reporting. It allows customers to increase their efficiency on site, reduce the safety risks and ensure that no information gets lost.

“The reality today is that most site visits require operatives to use a combination of tools and technologies to capture data and observations” said Above’s CEO Will Hitchcock on the partnership. “Then spend even more time post-visit compiling these notes, photos and other data into a finished report or deliverable.  Now operatives can use one device and one application to capture what they need, there and then.”

The Cat S62 Pro is the most advanced thermal Imaging smartphone available, powered by the highest resolution FLIR Lepton sensor. Its feature-rich toolset enables Above to bring unrivalled thermal imaging functionality to their EyeSite mobile app. Technicians will be able to perform faster and safer contractual inspections of major equipment such as HV switchgear and DC combiner boxes than ever before.

Tim Shepherd, Senior Director of Applications at Bullitt Group added that the company has pioneered mobile thermal imaging since 2016 and that by using the Cat phones SDK to integrate the thermal capabilities of the Cat S62 Pro into their app, Above has created the ability for ground engineers to inspect and assess solar installations with just a handheld device.

“We are really excited to be supporting Above with a relevant and compelling use case” said Mr Shepherd. “The fact that it is also a connected device means a new, real-time, cost-efficient tool for the industry.”
