Electrical Inspections with Infrared

A small electrical problem can quickly turn into a system-wide shutdown. Until your team finds and replaces the faulty equipment, production comes to a halt. Infrared electrical inspections can help ensure an operation never reaches that point. By finding damaged components early, infrared energy audits allow you to plan for repairs and prevent downtime. They are essential to maintaining a productive business and an efficient electrical system.

ICI provides unbeatable, highly accurate electrical inspection solutions. Our infrared systems quickly detect high temperatures, which are an early sign of failing equipment or fire hazard. Inspect your entire electric power distribution system and see what the eye would normally miss. From facility monitoring to new home inspections, ICI’s solutions keep things safe and moving forward.

What happens in an electrical safety check?

During a new system installation or a routine electrical inspection, safety is key. It is important to identify any damaged equipment or parts that were incorrectly made or installed. Infrared energy audits make this task easier by overviewing your whole system, even hard to reach or see areas. Infrared cameras identify hot spots, which indicate increased resistance in electrical equipment. These hot components might be failing, or worse, might soon burn. 

Electrical professionals use infrared inspections for regular preventative and predictive maintenance checks. Inspections also help ensure a business meets guidelines for safe installation and operation. Landlords and homeowners rely on infrared inspection to stay up to permit codes or meet insurance requirements. Whatever the application, infrared electrical inspection helps keep people safer.

What is electrical thermal scanning?

Electrical thermal scanning uses an infrared camera to create a high-resolution temperature map. In an infrared electrical inspection, this image identifies hot spots and helps you catch issues early on. You can identify hazardous equipment before it fails, before it melts, or corrodes other components.  

Infrared is useful for checking switchboards, electrical cabinets, insulation, transformers, connectors, and more. Find overloaded equipment, corrosion, loose connections, and damage or deterioration of all kinds. Plan ahead and keep business moving with infrared energy audits.
