A New Generation of Miniaturized, Lightweight, and Modular Wheeled Inspection Robot Powered by DFI Palm-sized Fanless Embedded System in China
Wheeled, substation, and intelligent inspection robots can effectively reduce labor intensity, substation operation, and maintenance costs. It can also improve inspection data quality and create a new substation inspection mode.
With low power consumption, high performance, complete I/O interface, and excellent technical support capabilities, DFI’s EC70A-SU assists Chinese customers to create a new generation of miniaturized, lightweight, and modular wheeled inspection robots. As a result, it improved the intellectual level of substation inspection.
Substation inspection robots mainly serve various substations, concentrated primarily on large-scale substations above 500kV. Therefore, they are used mainly to inspect substation equipment. They are divided into visible light inspections and infrared inspections.

It is critical to replace your home’s aging electrical wiring at the first hint of danger. This risk increases if your home is old.
In the United States, each year between 45,000 and 55,000 house fires are caused by poor electrical work or obsolete wiring. In Chicago, today’s homeowners have far greater demands on the electrical supply than expected when the houses were built.
The safety of your house is jeopardized if you use computer systems, gaming systems, huge appliances, or even “smart home” components on a house built for considerably low electrical usage.
This is only one of many explanations why your electrical device could need an upgrade. Understanding when to repair electrical wiring is critical as a homeowner because your family’s safety and wellbeing are at stake. [Read more…] about When Should Old Electrical Wiring Be Replaced?
