Thermographic and High-Definition Inspection

Above pioneered the use of aerial thermography in the solar industry and is still the industry leader today.  Above is known for our attention to detail and can detect thermal anomalies in solar PV modules down to a cellular level. Above thermographic and visual high-definition inspection is both a cost-effective and time-efficient solution to detect potential performance issues. Above holds patents that ensure our inspections give accurate and high-quality results. Our customer platform SolarGain displays the inspection results within an overview dashboard, interactive geo-spatial map, and a filterable anomaly list.


A comprehensive view of asset health down to a cellular level

Build an accurate baseline
Regular Above thermographic inspections empower you to analyse and compare performance results over the asset's lifetime and across your entire portfolio.
Standardise your data
Aerial imagery performed up to IEC standards and best practice guidelines across your solar portfolio.
Support warranty claims
Start building a digital thread of historical data to help you understand the module failure rate. Having access to high-quality historical data can lead to a more successful warranty claim in the future.
Electrically and spatially mapped
Your aerial inspection data is electrically and spatially mapped to the exact location in the SolarGain platform.
The industry's most advanced power loss model
Designed in collaboration with leading academic research centre C.R.E.S.T, this tool uniquely demonstrates the combined impact of module thermal anomalies using your electrical system design.
Build punch lists from your reports
Easily create and share a list of actionable tasks with contractors directly from your SolarGain thermographic report.
Compare historic reports
Compare multiple inspection reports within a series of data visualisations. Our intelligent tool connects the dots between your data releasing precious resource time to identify persistent and evolving thermal anomalies.

High-quality data capture

Above can capture an IEC-compliant high-definition image and thermal image of every module down to a cellular level.  Our patented normalisation methodology enables us to collect the most accurate data available. Quality assurance is carried out by a level 1 thermographer to ISO 18436 standards whilst working with ISO 9001:2015 processes.

Aerial presentation imagery

With every inspection, we capture an aerial photograph of the site that can be used in marketing materials and as a way to identify the site.
