Infrared Electrical Scan


The infrared electrical systems survey is typically conducted on an annual basis as part of a regular preventive maintenance program. The infrared electrical testing allows for inspection of a large amount of electrical equipment in a short time as opposed to the alternative method of physically inspecting and tightening electrical components. The infrared electrical systems survey locates faulty electrical items not generally found during a physical inspection.

The infrared electrical systems survey locates problems before they lead to an unscheduled outage, equipment damage or a fire. Today’s facilities engineers are avoiding costly expenses every year with infrared electrical surveys. An infrared electrical systems survey scan can substantially improve profitability and reduce your operating, testing and maintenance costs by offering the following benefits:

• Quickly pinpoints electrical systems problems
• Reduces downtime and electrical equipment damage
• Prevents catastrophic and costly system failures
• Allows engineers and facility managers to establish repair priorities
• Drastically improves preventive maintenance efficiency
• Can be tested under load to avoid costly system shutdowns

And because infrared thermography testing is non-contact and nondestructive testing (NDT), there is no need to interrupt system production. Our experienced ICS Thermographers inspect your electrical equipment under normal loads and operating conditions. By performing an infrared scan of your electrical system in ‘real time’ our infrared electrical systems survey inspections can help you understand the practical impacts of emerging or existing electrical component problems.

Electrical inspections are incredibly important to building maintenance and occupant safety, in addition to being essential for fulfilling building codes. To be remiss with your electrical inspections is to open yourself up to outages, surges, and fires. If you need to perform a non-invasive inspection on your property’s electrical system, choose Infrared Consulting Services to perform an electrical scan.

Infrared Electrical Scans

Inspections once required shutting off your building’s electricity so that a technician could manually inspect each component of the system. Today, we can perform inspections without interrupting the daily operations of your business, and we are less likely to miss anything. We do this using infrared technology to perform an infrared electrical scan.

Our thermographers perform an infrared scan while your electrical system is operating normally in order to get the clearest possible image of what is going on with your system. Not only does this allow us to give you a better diagnosis, but it also allows you to continue with your normal operations. In addition, infrared causes no damage to your system, where a physical inspection definitely could.

Infrared electrical inspections are also superior because they not only detect advanced issues, but they detect emerging ones as well. Infrared scans can also work on areas that would normally be difficult for an inspector to physically reach. This allows us to access every component of your electrical system.

At the end of our inspection, we provide you with a thorough inspection report, which documents any electrical problems detected in the inspection as well as an inventory of the system components.
