Identify electrical faults with the outstanding thermal imaging technology

Thermal imagers have always been used by the military until in recent years it was introduced in commercial and industrial applications. The technology has become very useful in the face of identifying hidden faults with electrical and mechanical problems. Issues with electrical connections, wiring or other system components are clearly highlighted as “hot spots” with infrared imaging. This makes it easy to locate and ensure repairs. You can clearly see the overheated connections on the thermal image.

An example of such efficient thermal imagers is the Flir i5. This thermal imaging camera serves as a supportive tool to the eye since the eye cannot see hidden faults. The thermal imaging camera quickly scans and identifies problem areas that can’t be seen by the naked eye. It can also take pictures of objects to show the amount of heat they are emitting. It is can also be used for repair verification and insurance purposes. This thermal imager can take a full temperature measurement ranges up to 250°C. Thermal imaging has helped many inspectors and contractors to detect abnormalities such as hot-spots that could lead to electrical and mechanical failures. This technology has avoided breakdowns in production and has saved time and money.
