Applications in this category range from the generation station to transmission and distribution systems.
High, medium, and low voltage systems and components are generally at or near customer locations. Applications in this category cover the local uses: transformers, local switchgear, breakers, panels, etc.
Data centers are large consumers of electricity with a low tolerance for either electrical failures or thermal anomalies. In addition to direct application to the electrical systems, thermal IR is used to identify issues with inadequate cooling, distribution of air, and local hot zones.
IR Windows can be a critical component in safe and efficient thermal IR surveys. They allow the interior of electrical cabinets to be surveyed without needing to open the cabinets. This saves time and increases safety.
Thermal IR for solar (PV) installations, whether they are solar fields, solar farms, or rooftop systems, is applied to commissioning and to ensuring that the solar system continues to deliver its full capacity over time.
