What is Thermal Imaging?
Thermal imaging works by detecting the heat generated through the measurement of the infrared electromagnetic radiation to produce a visible image of that radiation. These images are called thermograms. The amount of infrared radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature, therefore, thermal imaging allows us to see variations in temperature.
The thermal imaging process begins by taking a thermal snapshot of the equipment, followed by the analysis of the temperature variations. As Objects have different abilities to emit inferred energy the analysis of the image taking into account the variable factors is the most crucial part. The analysis is then followed by a formal reporting process to provide you with a easy to understand report allowing you to make an informed decision.
Thermal imaging inspection of main switchrooms, switchboards, distribution boards and sub-boards. For early fault detection and risk assessment. Often used in conjunction with a visual inspection to AS 3019.
Requirement for risk assessment for insurance.
Regular inspections for the early detection of faults.
Motors & Generators
By the location of energy loses detected by thermal imaging in electrical cable, motors, etc, wasted energy is able to be reduced.
Used in conjunction with other testing to ensure the correct operation of backup power systems. More Info.
