Electrical Thermal Imaging | Levittown, Pa
Increased resistance and heat are the primary reasons most electrical components fail. Electrical systems resistance can be caused by a number of things including age of component, over worked equipment, oxidation, loose connections or poor installation. For property owners, facility managers, maintenance managers, etc., it is nearly impossible to know that you have a problem until it is too late. With the help of electrical thermal imaging cameras we can instantly search electrical components for “hot spots” before the problem occurs. It’s proactive vs. reactive which is important in industrial, commercial and residential applications.
Thermal Imaging Cameras
Kiss Electric, LLC certified electricians can scan electrical cabinets, breaker panels, fuses, bolted connections and switchgear using a thermal imager to get instant picture of impending trouble that would likely be missed. In addition to discovering where heat issues have developed, electrical thermal imaging cameras provide an accurate way to measure the temperature of energized components without having to disrupt the component; this ensures a safe working distance. Spot meters and box diagnostic tools are used to determine when equipment has exceeded its temperature limit and needs to be taken offline for replacement or repair.
Thermal Imaging Electrical Inspections
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and many insurance companies not only recommend but require a yearly test to be done. It is cost effective, provides a facility with increased longevity for equipment, reduces risk of fire, prevents property loss and can save lives. Kiss Electric LLC offers thermal imaging electrical inspections designed to identify problematic electrical issues before they occur to keep employees safe and facilities running smoothly.
