Introduction To SenseHawk Therm
Therm uses drone-acquired thermal imagery to assess the health of solar sites. Therm’s visual AI algorithm has been honed to identify and classify over 20 different types of defects on drone-based thermal maps. Tight integration with SenseHawk’s Work productivity suite ensures quick remediation of defects on the ﬁeld, using mobile-based task management tools.

Key Concepts & Methodology
To work effectively in Therm, you need a basic understanding of the methodology and concepts.
The process involved in setting up data and defect remediation

The Map is the drone-acquired thermal imagery, also called the thermal map. Therm’s visual AI algorithm has been honed to identify and classify over 20 different types of defects on drone-based thermal maps.
The defects identiﬁed by Therm’s visual AI algorithm identify the defects and classify them to a speciﬁc defect type. Some of the common defects identified are Bypass Diode Active, Hotspot, Module Hot, etc. The defects identiﬁed can be viewed on the Map page or separately tracked on the Defects page.
The reports give information such as the defects and the temperature histogram. The information in the reports is all graphical representation for a quicker way to view and track the defects. The graphs on the reports page can be downloaded.
The ﬁlter is dynamic. These ﬁlters allow you to quickly narrow down the data displayed to only those records you care about. The set ﬁlter will apply to all the pages on the therm v2.0 page. Some of the options in the ﬁlters are as follows.
Initiate or start a chat request or post your queries on our in-app chat support for any questions.
This indicates the criticality of the task. This can be conﬁgured based on your requirement. Speciﬁc defects can be set higher priority. Use this to ﬁlter out defects based on the priority set to defects or tasks.
Assignee & Created By:
The assignee is the user responsible for a particular task. The task or the defects in the system can have an assignee accountable for the remediation of the defect identiﬁed. The assignee can be selected in the ﬁlter to ﬁlter out the assignee’s tasks.
Created By is the user who creates a task manually. Apart from the auto-detected defects, the system also allows you to create tasks. The tasks that are manually created will have the user identiﬁed as Created By. These tasks can be ﬁltered out using the Created by ﬁlter
Each task or identiﬁed defect can have a due date set. The tasks can be ﬁltered based on the set due date.
Tags are a practical way to segregate tasks. In tasks, you can use existing tags or create new tags on the go. Tags can be used in the ﬁlters to ﬁlter out speciﬁc tasks.
Filter out the defects with the easy-to-use temperature difference ﬁlter. Just drag and set to a speciﬁc temperature between 0 – 100 and ﬁlter out the defects list.
The thermal issues are color-coded; you will see the color code in summary on the left side of the page. You can select/deselect the types of issues you want to view on the map.
Visual Map layouts:
The visual map and the AutoCAD layer can be viewed by clicking on the icon from the right top. The available options are CAD Layout, Visual Layout, and Thermal Layout.
Tasks can be created manually by pointing anywhere in the map using the Add Task marker tool. The manually created task can have an assignee, due date, status, and much more. The tasks that are created on the map will also have geo-location details. Hence the personal on the ﬁeld can easily locate the point marked on the map.
SenseHawk Therm User Guide
1. Log in to https://app.sensehawk.com/ using your credentials
2. On the organization Home page, click on the desired asset
FIGURE 5: PORTFOLIO OF ASSETS
3. Select the date and the inverter number/s that must be reviewed from the top left corner.
4. Thermal map and issues will be visible on the map. The thermal issues are color-coded; you will be able to see the color code in summary on the left side of the page. You can select/deselect the types of issues you want to view on the map.
5. The visual map and the AutoCAD layer (if available) can be viewed by clicking on the icon from the right top
6. The PDF or CSV ﬁle for the selected inverter blocks can be downloaded from the screen's bottom-left. Issues/Defects can also be ﬁltered based on temperature, issue type, and download the PDF and CSV files.
7. All the issues identiﬁed are listed as tasks. The task list is on the right-hand side of the screen. Clicking on any issue will redirect you to the issue location on the site. You will be able to see the summary details of the issue, including location, temperature difference, ticket status, and assignee. You can also download the raw images, add assignee, task-list to the issues/tasks.
Mobile Application To Remediate Defects
1. To install the application on your mobile device, please follow the below.
2. Once you log in, you will see the list of projects under your organization (in case you are from a different
organization, please change your organization from the options menu on the home screen). Click on the
project (Orient Solar for example) and click on Thermography under the Thermal tab:
3. The site map view will open with the tickets highlighted. Click on the layer icon on the top right of the screen. Under the “Rasters” tab, select Maps and Features of different Inverter Blocks and turn on or off different issues under the “Feature Types”. Alternatively, simply click on any block to view the maps and defects for that block
4. To work offline, first, make sure your location shows up on the map by clicking on the locate icon at the
bottom corner. Your location will show up as a blue dot on the screen. Next, select the block that you are
planning to work on while in a Wi-Fi or cellular network zone. Once the map and features of the desired block
are loaded, please click on the offline icon at the top right corner; you will now be able to work on the app in
offline mode, even in areas where the network coverage is patchy. All activities (including checklists and
photographs attached to tickets) will be synced when you come back online by clicking on the same icon
5. Click on any feature or place a marker anywhere on the field to create new tasks while walking the site.
6. Your location will be visible as a Blue dot on the screen; navigate to an existing task and click on it to see the task details.
7. To view the task description, click on the ﬁrst tab at the bottom. Here, you can add users, set status and priority, add teams, and more.
To add a checklist or view an existing one, click on the second tab at the bottom.
8. Click on the checklist items to mark them complete. Attach relevant images/documents, add subtasks, notes, etc. to individual tasks by clicking on the options menu.
9. The “Attachments” tab will allow you to take photographs and add attachments to the task. The “Conversations” tab will show all task activity and will also allow all users with access to the task to add comments and have conversations on the field.
10. In case you would like to simply work or view on a list tasks pending against your name without going into the map view, from the home screen, simply click on the 'Tasks' tab at the bottom. This will reveal a list of tasks pending against your name. Clicking on them will show task details similar to the ones above.
