Electrical infrared inspections: Today’s facilities engineers are saving of millions of dollars every year with electrical infrared inspections. An electrical infrared inspection scan can substantially improve profitability and reduce your operating, testing and maintenance costs by:

• quickly pinpointing problems
• reducing downtime and equipment damage
• preventing catastrophic failures
• establishing repair priorities
• improving preventive maintenance efficiency
• testing under load to avoid costly repairs

Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, causing damage to the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. This is why your insurance company may have asked for an electrical infrared inspection, to find and prevent problems before they cause damage to your personnel, equipment and facility.

Conditions detectable by an infrared inspection:
