The basis of electrical thermographic inspections is detecting excessive heat in electrical equipment. The heat is a symptom of electrical problems. By identifying these problems before they become more severe, and promptly making the recommended repairs, the costs you incur may be lowered. By catching problems with electrical equipment early on, issues can be corrected before they can cause greater damage.

How Infrared Thermographic Inspections Work
Thermography enables us to see and measure heat. All materials on earth emit heat energy in the infrared portion of the spectrum. Unfortunately, the unaided human eye cannot see in the infrared spectrum. Thermographic images allow us to see revealing anomalies that, in turn, identify problems in buildings and their electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and waterproofing systems. Infrared cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation.
Benefits of Infrared Thermographic Inspections
Infrared thermography is the most important and cost-effective element of any electrical maintenance program. Research shows an average of 400 percent return on investment for every dollar spent on infrared inspections. A professional thermographer—who has thorough knowledge of electrical construction—can detect electrical failures long before any other testing method, reducing down time, saving equipment costs, and increasing personnel safety.
