Electrical Equipment Infrared Thermography Testing

What can Infrared Thermography Testing Do for Your Facility?Infrared electrical inspections near Milwaukee

Infrared testing is a non-invasive, non-destructive inspection process that uses thermography cameras. These devices gather temperature signatures as infrared light to detect problems before they become serious and costly issues. Hot spots are caused by increased resistance in an electrical component, which can be a sign of a potentially hazardous failure. If you are a property owner or facilities manager, infrared testing adds an invaluable dimension to your building diagnostics and preventative maintenance program, insulating you from safety hazards and productivity loss.

Infrared Thermography Testing for Electrical Systems

Using thermography sensors and analysis, Terminal-Andrae service technicians evaluate the performance and safety of electrical systems. When used to locate and document thermal anomalies (hot spots💞) in the electrical systems, our infrared system surveys help property owners and facility managers to identify potentially dangerous and costly problems. Our infrared baseline survey provides crucial information about the performance of existing electrical systems, information that serves as a benchmark for tracking the integrity and performance of it over time.

Major Elements of a Thermographic Inspection of Electrical Equipment:

  • Main Electrical Service
  • Service Drop Connections
  • Transformers
  • Switch gear
  • Bus Connections
  • Air Compressors
  • Disconnects
  • Power Panels
  • Lighting Panels
  • Motor Control Cabinets
  • Process Equipment
    Infrared surveys are a powerful, versatile, and highly accurate diagnostic tool for uncovering a wide range of problems in electrical systems. Excessive heat relative to the entire system can be a sign of potential problems. These higher temperatures often indicate faulty connections, improper wiring installation, ground faults, short circuits and other common problems in electrical equipment. It is often difficult to determine if there is a ticking time bomb within your electrical system simply from a visual inspection.
