Electrical Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared Thermal Imaging is a proven technology for predictive / preventive maintenance of electrical systems and components. As current flows through conductors, breakers, switch gear, and other components, heat is produced.
Loose or deteriorated connections, failing components, and other problems produce heat signatures that can be identified by a trained thermographer using a thermal imaging camera. These problems can result in costly downtime, personnel safety hazards, and even fires resulting in building damage. For this reason, some insurance companies require annual infrared thermal inspections of the electrical components in commercial and industrial facilities that they insure.
