Thermal Imaging Helps You Detect, Troubleshoot and Fix Problems to Prevent Costly Shutdowns and Outages
Electrical equipment tends to heat up before it fails, hiding from sight until a problem becomes “self-evident”. Fortunately, thermal imaging cameras instantly make those hot spots clearly visible so you can catch them in time to investigate further, plan repairs, and get things fixed before they turn critical. Scan electrical cabinets, breaker panels, fuses, bolted connections, and switchgear with a thermal imager and get an instant picture of impending trouble that you likely would miss otherwise.
Reliable, Non-Contact Temperature Measurements
Along with showing you where heat issues have developed, infrared cameras provide a more accurate way to measure the temperature of energized components without having to touch and probe them, so you can maintain a safe working distance. Most offer on-screen spot meter and area box diagnostic tools to help you quickly quantify the problems you see in the image so you know when equipment has exceeded its temperature limit and needs to be taken offline for replacement or repair.
Whether it is a lightweight handheld infrared camera that fits easily in a tool belt, or a full-featured, high-resolution infrared camera, FLIR can help you build a competitive edge in today’s marketplace.
Choose the thermal imaging product that is right for you:
Eliminate the need for opening electrical enclosures and protect yourself from the threat of arc flash injuries with new FLIR IR Windows. With added safety between you and energized equipment, you’ll save time and get more thermal and visual inspections done with greater confidence.
The FLIR TG165 gives you the advantage of thermal imaging to discover temperature issues you can’t see with a typical IR thermometer. You’ll work more quickly—and have confidence you won’t miss anything vital.
