Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on electrical equipment because excess heat on electrical apparatus indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions. Before an electrical component fails, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat so that maintenance personnel can act to correct the a problem before the component fails and causes damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.

Computer equipment and related systems that should be inspected:

  • UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems
  • ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) systems
  • Main Switchgear systems
  • Computer and Server Systems
  • Generator systems
  • Battery systems
  • Cooling systems
