Electrical Thermography

What is Thermography?

Thermography, also known as Thermal IR imaging, is an inspection process using infrared imaging technology to measure and view temperature patterns emitted from switchboards.

Because excess heat is often the first sign of failure, thermography is a valuable non-invasive diagnostic tool used to predict early failures such as worn-out switchgear, current overload and burnt connections.

When to use thermography?

Annual maintenance program

Qualify for insurance protection

Inspect new electrical installations

Why use thermography?

Identify deteriorating electrical components

Identify loose or broken connections

Identify electrical overload

Who uses thermography?

·    Commercial enterprises

·    Manufacturing plants

·    Landlords – high density commercial and residential

·    Facility managers – high density commercial and residential. 

·    Property owners.


4 Steps to Your Thermal Inspection?

Step 1.   Make an appointment. 

Step 2. Certified Thermographer attends.  Flir Thermal Imager is used to scan each switchboard and sub-board.  

Step 3. If a thermal exception is identified, a report is generated immediately using calibration and load current measurements.  

Step 4. A complete inspection report on all assets, thermal exceptions and recommendations with a priority rating is delivered within 7 days.

How will this help?

  • Reduce unscheduled down time
  • Reduce likelihood of catastrophic electrical failures

  • Reduced repair costs
  • ‚ÄčReduced risks
