What is Infrared ?
Infrared is a non-invasive technology used to detect potential points of failure in your power equipment. In electrical systems, excessive heat is a sign of impending trouble. High temperatures indicate excessive electrical resistance, failing components, ground faults, short circuits or other common problems in electrical equipment that can lead to expensive or even catastrophic failures.
Infrared thermography is the most important and cost effective element of any electrical maintenance program. Research shows an average of a 400% return on investment for every dollar spent on infrared inspections. A skilled thermographer who has knowledge of electrical construction can detect electrical failures long before any other testing method reducing downtime, saving equipment costs and increasing personnel safety.
