How Does it Work?

Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up.

Infrared thermography is a widely used technique for electrical equipment maintenance. These inspections use infrared cameras to detect excess temperature on electrical apparatus, which can indicate electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, and faulty fuses, among others. By identifying these issues early, maintenance personnel can take corrective action before the component fails, helping to avoid safety hazards, damage to the component, and costly production downtime.

Thermography is an essential part of predictive and preventative maintenance programs because it allows facility managers to proactively address potential problems. By regularly using infrared thermography to inspect electrical equipment, problems can be identified and addressed before they result in disruptions or damage, ensuring the smooth and reliable operation of these systems. Early action is key to avoiding component failure, which can have serious consequences for safety and production.
