Why Use Infrared? A Picture Says A Thousand Words.
Infrared thermography is the only diagnostic technology that lets you instantly visualize and verify thermal performance.
Nearly everything that uses or transmits power gets hot before it fails. Cost effective power management is critical to maintaining the reliability of your electrical and mechanical systems. And today, no one would argue that infrared thermography is one of the most effective proven predictive maintenance (PM) technology available to quickly, accurately and safely locate problems prior to failure.
Infrared inspections provide a means to view systems (electrical, mechanical, building envelopes) under normal operating conditions to identify abnormally hot (or cool) areas or components. This is a powerful maintenance tool. In many instances, equipment failure is preceded by a period of increasing heat. This is especially true for electrical equipment.
With infrared thermography you can identify overheating electrical connections and other machine components, scheduling repairs to be made during planned downtime. This increases reliability and productivity for the entire operation.
