Infrared Electrical Survey

Infrared Electrical Survey

An Infrared Electrical Survey is performed under normal conditions to help locate problems before they become failures. Performed regularly, infrared inspections of electrical systems (an infrared electrical survey) can help reduce maintenance costs and improve reliability.

Infrared thermography is a form of non-contact, non-destructive testing. Thermal patterns and associated temperatures of electrical system components are detected and documented during an infrared electrical survey.

Similar electrical components, operating under similar conditions, should exhibit the same thermal or infrared pattern. Unusual thermal patterns may indicate a potential problem involving a piece of equipment. Typical problems detected during an Infrared Electrical Survey include:

  • Loose Connections
  • Faulty Equipment
  • Overloaded Circuits
  • Unbalanced Loads

According to the National Fire Protection Association, “infrared inspections should be performed at least annually.” Infrared Electrical System Surveys should be planned as part of:

  • P/PM Programinfrared electrical survey from Jersey Infrared Consultants
  • Shutdown Planning
  • Commissioning
  • Quality Assurance
