When arranging a solar site inspection with Raptor Maps, you’ll select one of three inspection types:
The Raptor Overview inspection is ideal for rapid drone flights and string-level outages. It identifies anomalies and provides insights at the full module level and larger.
The Raptor Standard inspection is best for annual preventative maintenance. In addition to the findings in Raptor Overview, it identifies sub-module anomalies such as diodes, cells and hot spots.
The Raptor Comprehensive inspection includes all findings in Raptor Overview and Raptor Standard. Analysis is in accordance with IEC TS 62446-3 Technical Specification: Photovoltaic (PV) systems – Requirements for testing, documentation, and maintenance – Part 3: Photovoltaic modules and plants – Outdoor infrared thermography. Identification of defects with Class of Abnormality (CoA) 2 and 3. Raptor Comprehensive also includes temperature deltas for sub-module thermal anomalies (more information here).
Raptor Maps may reevaluate the specific findings reported upon at any time in order to improve accuracy. For an up-to-date and exhaustive list of anomalies refer to this page.
Once your inspection report is available, you’ll access the results of your solar site inspection via the Raptor Maps software portal with the following features:
Portfolio dashboard to access individual PV-system inspections
User permissions to add collaborators and clients to the organization or reports
Web report containing all analytics in the proposalInteractive georeferenced site plan with analytics overlay, with modules containing findings individually addressed according to custom Numbering Convention (row, string, module, etc.)
