Infra-Red Thermal Scanning

Infrared scanning is used to inspect electrical equipment because excess heat is usually the first sign of trouble. Loose connectors, imbalanced and or overloaded circuits, defective breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses, and material defects all lead to equipment failure.

Benefits of Thermal scanning:
  • Increase Equipment Life
  • Lower Risk
  • Cost saving on repair costs
  • Reduce unscheduled Downtime
  • Prevent Failures
Conditions detectable by an Infra-Red Scanning:
  • Loose/deteriorated connections
  • Overloads
  • Open circuits
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Inductive heating
  • Harmonics
  • Defective equipment
