Infrared inspection of electrical systems represents one of the oldest applications for infrared thermography. Performed on a regular basis, infrared inspections can help to detect and document incipient failures. When combined with timely, effective repairs, these inspections can improve reliability and help to reduce unscheduled downtime. Despite claims to the contrary, infrared inspections of electrical systems are not a ‘point and shoot’ endeavor. This presentation will provide an in-depth perspective how to properly and safely perform an infrared inspection along with ways to identify a wide range of electrical defects with your thermal imager.
This course is a must for anyone who performs or oversees infrared inspections of electrical equipment and systems.
This course will enable you to:
- properly conduct an infrared inspection of electrical equipment
- recognize common defects detectable with thermography
- determine safe work practices for conducting inspections
- identify tools and techniques necessary to confirm findings
- document your findings with standards-compliant reports
This material is intended for all thermographers performing infrared inspections of energized electrical equipment. Course is designed for in-house and contract thermographers as well as managers of infrared inspection programs.
