Thermography TestApogee Consultancy, we are engaged in providing our clients Electrical Thermography by Qualified Professionals. An infrared electrical inspection can minimize injury, liability, damage, catastrophic failures and downtime of the organization. Many conventional electrical problems have unconventional answers, which are not revealed in routine inspection. Small faults may be negligible but could create lasting damaging effects to life & property in the long run.
In electrical systems component’s age, fatigue, oxidation, wear & tear, loose connections, poor installation can increase resistance & heat. Infrared cameras catch this heat. This is why an Infrared electrical inspection is the best way to detect early electrical failures, because most electrical things tend to get hot before they fail)
Thermo - graphic Survey - Electrical Systems
Thermal imaging is an extremely useful tool for electrical fault finding. It requires no contact being made with the components which means that the components can be checked in a live state with little danger to the user, there is no effect on the components or interruption in any processes the electrical system may be controlling.
Electrical equipment can suffer from numerous faults which will show an increase in temperature.
- Corroded or loose connections
- Imbalanced Loads
- Using underrated equipment or overloading equipment
- Insulation Damage
- Incorrect voltage
- Blocked or poorly ventilated equipment
- Deterioration due to age
- Exceeding the recommended temperature rating
- Fuse boards
- Distribution boards
- Bus bar systems
- Control panels
- High voltage and medium voltage systems
- Power line connections and insulators
- Electronic components
- UPS and battery systems
- PLC connections
- Motor control centers
IR Inspection mainly involves scanning, image taking and image analysis and among them analysis part is most important for correct diagnosis of problems.
