Infrared Video Maintenance Inspection

Infrared Thermal Imaging Electrical Switch Board Inspections

Electrical components get hot before they fail. An Infrared inspection can identify these hot spots because the infrared camera can see heat. Loose or dirty electrical connections, blocked fans and other electrical anomalies cause heat to increase, can cause power outages and sometimes even fires. A thermal imaging inspection of the electrical components can reveal overloaded circuits, load imbalances, faulty and improperly installed components and detect issues before there is a costly outage. The resulting report can be a great aid for business owners, insurance companies and electricians hired to address the identified issues.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Used To Detect Faulty Circuit Board Components

Electrical components normally run hot when they are faulty. A Thermal Imaging Inspection can often identify these faulty components because the infrared camera can see the heat difference between a normal running component and the hotter running faulty component. A thermal imaging inspection of the electrical components can reveal overloaded circuits, load imbalances, faulty and improperly installed components and detect issues before they fail. The results can be impressive and of great benefit for the technicians hired to address the issues.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Mechanical Inspections

Mechanical inspections often require comparing similar pieces of equipment as well as considering their actual operating temperature. For example, viewed in Infrared, two identical motors operating under the same load should look alike. An impending failure will be evident in the Infrared image. Early detection of a failing component allows for scheduled repairs and avoids costly downtime. Using a Infrared camera with direct temperature readout a Thermographer can show a technician instant temperature results so they can decide whether or not mechanical parts are operating within temperature design tolerances or not.
