Infrared Imaging

Vibration condition monitoring is an excellent tool for diagnosing mechanical and certain electrical malfunctions, but has significant limitations in many electrical applications. Most all electrical components exhibit rising temperatures prior to failure, but it is extremely time-consuming and inefficient to use a single point temperature measuring device inside a complicated panel or switchgear. Infrared imaging can also be used to determine mode shapes, operating deflection shapes, and frequencies. Infrared is non-contact, non-intrusive approach that measures heat distribution and concentrations. This data gives insight into the deformations that a structure is undergoing, without the need to place sensors directly on to the structure.

Infrared imaging is a proven condition monitoring technology that has been utilized effectively for years. Using infrared technology, we are able to scan and provideinfrared image imaging of the temperature profile of the electrical or mechanical component of interest.

With the advancing expectations for reliability, efficiency, and product quality, the number of applications for this technology are continually growing.
