How does thermal imaging for electrical installations work?
Thermal images are captured of the key components of an installation, such as:
- distribution boards
- fuse boards
- control panels
- switchgears, and
The thermal images allow us to see the heat signatures associated with high electrical resistance long before the circuit becomes hot enough to cause an outage or explosion. Faults such as high resistance caused by poor surface contact or an uneven load can be detected in seconds.
How thermal imaging can save you money
Failures of electrical installations in buildings are becoming increasingly costly in terms of downtime and disruption. They can have far reaching consequences and a long term financial impact.
Thermal imaging technology allows for the early detection of faults that could otherwise present risks to health and the environment. Where faults are identified, the planning of structured preventative maintenance will minimise the disruption to workflow keeping costs to a minimum.
