Infrared Thermography is playing an increasingly important role in the prevention and control of visually undetectable maintenance problems. This technology allows us to detect overloaded circuits, faulty or high resistance connections and other defective electrical components before they can cause expensive facility damage or production losses.
Thermographic technology utilizes radiation emitted in the infrared light spectrum to image and measure thermal problems that are simply undetectable to the human eye. Without shutting down the equipment, or interfering with production, a thermographic inspection can detect problems in UPS systems, DC power plants, electrical panels and switchgear cabinets may result in electrical fires, mechanical breakdowns, or significant business interruption.
CSA Power Solutions uses state-of-the-art cameras to detect and display thermal temperature differences from the infrared radiation (heat) emitted by an object. The information is converted to a real-time, visible light image and temperature measurement, which is displayed and recorded. Since thermal imaging allows you to see what you normally cannot see, it provides early warning and documentation of incipient failures.
A formal report detailing the problem, and including a visual image and a thermogram of the problem, and a place to record the follow-up services, will follow.
