Thermal imaging applications – Electrical Surveying

The use of thermal imaging cameras is rising across a number of industries as people are increasingly recognising the huge benefits that they can bring to a business. This coupled with the decreasing costs of thermal technology means that thermal imaging cameras have become accessible to businesses regardless of size. One key growth area for the use of thermal cameras is electrical surveying and engineering, as the increase in expertise and services that it allows electricians and engineers to offer their customers is becoming clear.

Thermal_imaging_electricalThermal imaging cameras have applications across the electrical field, all of which save time and money. Whether your client needs a large scale survey of their electrical control systems or a smaller scale inspection of specific components, a thermal imaging camera allows you to swiftly complete the required analysis and provide them with the accurate feedback that they require to make the right decisions. Thermal imaging cameras allow you to identify potentially hazardous hot spots and any electrical based thermal anomalies.

For large scale inspections of numerous electrical control systems, a thermal imaging camera with video recording functionality is the ideal tool. This would ensure that you can keep track of your images when you are focusing at more than one area, and map them accurately to the correct physical location. Alternatively, a camera with the ability to record voice commentary over stored images would equally allow you to maintain the documentation and accuracy levels that your work requires. Thermal imaging is a superbly effective time-saver when you need to perform large-scale analysis of multiple control systems and enables you to the quickly and efficiently gain detailed insight into any thermal anomalies present.

With a thermal imaging camera you can accurately analyse the smallest electrical components and provide detailed heating and cooling information in order to give advice on process optimisation. If you can save your clients time and money and help them run their operation more efficiently, you will become an indispensable part of their business.

This allows your clients to save time and money on unnecessary downtime or more drastic maintenance due to issues created by an undiagnosed defect. As an electrician or electrical engineer, a thermal imaging camera will keep you on the cutting edge of industry technology, increase the service base that you can offer your customers and set you apart your competition.
