Thermal Scanning/Imaging or Infrared Inspection of electrical equipment is an unintrusive diagnostic technique that allows us to visualize and quantify changes in the surface temperature of electrical switchgear.
When parts of your electrical systems begin to have problems, they give off heat – usually a sign of electrical resistance or excessive friction. Abnormal temperatures can be easily identified and published.
A scanning unit reads the infrared radiation (heat) emitted from the surface of electrical equipment. These impulses are mapped as colors which represent the variances identifying equipment flaws and pinpointing any hot spots invisible to the naked eye.
Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up. Early detection with Infrared Thermal Scanning can detect problems early before they cause a system failure or fire.
Our experienced electricians can scan your electrical system for potential faults or dangers. Thermal imaging surveys are non-invasive, non-destructive, and can be completed while your equipment is running, in production and under load.
