Thermal imaging has become a valuable tool in the electrical industry. A thermal imaging camera detects damaged or broken electrical equipment by showing the amount of heat emitted from the equipment that needs to be repaired or replaced. Most electrical equipment--such as breakers, fuses, and wire--should operate near or just above room temperature.
When a thermal imaging camera is used, problems can be found that would otherwise go undetected until the equipment malfunctions entirely. Being able to locate damaged equipment before it malfunctions helps prevent those late night emergency calls where someone is left without power and waiting for an electrician to arrive to fix the problem. Discovering a problem before it breaks down completely allows time for ordering replacement parts, scheduling a convenient time to shut the equipment down, and ultimately saving money on parts and labor.
Below are just a few examples we've found.
