Thermal Imaging


Non-Contact Thermal imaging maintenance is a safe and reliable method and is used for inspections of electrical systems and components in all sizes and shapes by our trained 
electrical personnel.

There are a multitude of applications for non-contact thermal imaging maintenance within the range of electrical systems including high voltage and low voltage installations.

For High voltage installations heat is an important factor in high voltage installations. As electrical current passes through a resistive element, it generates heat.
An increased resistance results in an increase in heat.

Over time the resistance of electrical connections will increase, due to loosening and corrosion for instance. The corresponding rise in
temperature can cause components to fail, resulting in unplanned outages and even injuries. In addition, the energy spent on generating
heat causes unnecessary energy losses. If left unchecked, the heat can even rise to the point where connections melt and break down;
as a result, fires may break out.

Some examples of failures in high-voltage installations that can be detected with thermal imaging:

• Oxidation of high voltage switches
• Overheated connections
• Incorrectly secured connections
• Insulator defects

These and other issues can be spotted at an early stage with a thermal imaging camera. A thermal imaging camera will help you to accurately
locate the problem, determine the severity of the problem, and establish the time frame in which the equipment should be repaired.

Our services can provide certainty that your facility maintains productivity up-time and efficiency  up, as well as saving you money with predictive & preventative maintenance.


For Low Voltage Installations Thermal imaging maintenance services are used for inspections of electrical systems and components in all sizes and shapes an
their use is by no means limited to large high voltage applications alone.

Electrical cabinets and motor control centers are regularly scanned with a thermal imaging maintenance services. If left unchecked, heat can rise to a point that
connections melt and break down; as a result, fires may break out. In addition loose connections in electrical systems suffer from load imbalances,
corrosion, and increases in impedance to current.

Thermal imaging inspection services using our trained electrical resources can quickly identify hot spots, determine the severity of the problem, and help establish the time frame in which the equipment should be repaired.

Examples of failures in low voltage equipment that can be detected with thermal imaging:

• High resistance connections
• Corroded connections
• Internal fuse damage
• Internal circuit breaker faults
• Poor connections and internal damage

These and other issues can be spotted at an early stage with a thermal imaging maintenance. Our approach and trained personnel will help you and your business
prevent costly damages as well avoid dangerous situations.
