Infrared Electrical Inspection


Thermal Imaging which often called as Infra Red, Infrared, Thermography, Thermovision and often called  in bahasa as Infra Merah, Inframerah, Thermografi, Thermovisi has proven to be an ideal inspection method for all types of predictive electrical maintenance. Infrared technology gives thermographers the ability to “see”, measure and record temperatures on defective components and the normal wear, corrosion, fatigue and faulty assembly that occurs in many electrical systems.

When an electrical  system begins to have problems, it gives off heat as a byproduct of electrical resistance. Infrared cameras record and visually display this emitted heat to show the exact location of the electrical defect. Thermal imaging simplifies diagnosis and repairs while protecting adjacent electrical components from hot spots. Routine thermal electrical inspections will reduce repair costs and decrease lost production hours that result during unexpected down time.

Overheating can occur in any electrical component including generators, transformers, pole top connections, insulators, disconnects, jumpers, shoe connections, fuse connections, switchgear, starters, contactors.

An infrared electrical inspection / infrared thermography inspection of your facility using Infrared Camera (Infra Red Camera) can provide you with valuable information about the condition of your electrical system and equipment that can save thousands of repair dollars and hundreds of hours of lost productivity. Even worse, unchecked electrical system failures can result in fires or dangerous explosions. Infrared inspections are designed to identify potential equipment failures before they happen so that appropriate preventative action can be taken. The decreased liability of a thermally inspected electrical system even encourages some insurance providers to offer discounted rates.


An infrared inspection also could use for many non electrical application such as:

  • Mechanical Equipment (abnormally warm motors or possible bearing failures)
  • Fluid Systems (line blockages, tank levels or pipe temperatures)
  • Many other applications that related to heat transfer
