access viewports and sparks from switching processes make direct visual observation difficult and dangerous in power plants today. Live monitoring of switches using specialised cameras minimises risks to human operators by monitoring switches from a safe distance, either locally using a portable video unit or remotely centralised from the control room. Kappa provides a unique, comprehensive range of extremely robust switchgear cameras designed for safe, live monitoring of GIS, Hybrid Switchgear, GCB, and air-insulated applications in the typically harsh environments of medium- and high-voltage networks. All switchgear cameras can be adapted to any type of viewport/ equipment and specific customer requirements. Scalable stationary or mobile solutions with a portable video unit are available for new


eliable switch device status is a safety requirement in power grids. However, hard-to-

monitoring. Quick, comfortable mobile viewport monitoring without “big” network- dependent solutions? That’s where their new battery- powered PVU comes into play: a smart mobile solution for viewport monitoring. 3 cameras can be connected for 3 phases. The image is directly displayed on the integrated monitor. This solution is also ideal for service technicians. Kappa optronics is an experienced partner for IEEE C.37.20.9-compliant switchgear camera systems (SGC) and the

substations or to upgrade running systems. This plant-focused concept assures quick, easy, and safe installation of the switchgear cameras. Reliable, user-friendly software is provided for easy and safe operation. The latest (and smallest) member of its

switchgear product line is its new PVU portable video unit for comfortable mobile switchgear


facilities that we had been looking to make, as we took the opportunity to invest and make some permanent changes. One of the ways we are now supporting our customers is to offer fully remote


witnessing of our Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) via secure video and audio link. Customers can view the testing from multiple individual cameras and pan, tilt, zoom to tailor exactly what they wish to focus on. It is crucial we provide our products to the highest standards and this is evident in us fully testing each transformer to the relevant international standards before it leaves our facility. This attention to detail flows down to the Rating & Diagram plate then fixed to the unit with the test data. Bowers Electricals have recently in- vested in a Trotec laser engraving machine to ensure the highest quality plates. We can do Anodised Aluminium, Stainless steel and several other mediums. The finish achieved is absolutely the highest level and finishes off our units nicely. Our Motor and Rewinds department has also invested in an iTIG III C12 static motor tester and winding analyzer, the most advance tester in the industry. The iTIG III features over 20 high and low voltage tests including high frequency surge and partial discharge. It has built in PDF software enabling reports to be directly generated for customers. Finally, we have installed a new system running the 'sign in' app which means

staff and visitors can record their arrival contact free via QR code. It also in- creases Bowers Electricals EHS controls with photo ID for all visitors and ad- herence to the induction process. All this investment and new methodologies have allowed Bowers to continue

to provide products, equipment, servicing and maintenance support to our vast array of customers and industries. Whilst following all the necessary Gov- ernment guidance and implementing social distancing throughout our opera- tions we are protecting employees and customers.

ost companies will have had to adapt to a “new normal” during the Cornavirus Pandemic. At Bowers Electricals we are no different, however we feel the guidelines accelerated improvements in our

company works closely with major clients in the area of power grids/ power technologies and thus can offer mature solutions that meet all specific requirements on site. Its switchgear camera systems are in use in plants worldwide, contributing to occupational safety.
