Many problems in electrical systems are caused by abnormal heating associated with high resistance or excessive current flow. Infrared thermography allows us to see these invisible thermal patterns before damage or failure occurs.
The primary value of thermography is to help us quickly locate the thermal signatures of these problems from among the thousands of potential problems.
Once the problem is located other test methods as well as experience and common sense are used to better understand the problem and its seriousness.
Thermography may also help us measure the temperature of the problem component, This information can be useful in determining the cause or severity of the problem or in managing it to a successful repair.
Locating these problems before failure has tremendous value, The primary benefits of inspecting electrical systems include:
