Thermal imaging is a method of improving visibility of objects in any environment by detecting the objects infrared radiation and creating an image based on that information.
Thermal imaging can detect potential problems within the electrical distribution system without the need to isolate circuits. Images can be taken of key components captured in a thermal image and a digital image.
By detecting anomalies, often invisible to the naked eye thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur.
A regular programme of thermal imaging as part of routine maintenance can highlight potential problems.
Partial discharge testing can detect the onset of serious problems that can manifest, within the cable chamber of electrical switchgear, such as arcing, which is inaudible, but if left unchecked can cause catastrophic failure of cables and switchgear. Using a Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) tester, engineers can detect ultrasonic discharges early.
Fixed wire testing
We carryout full or percentage fixed wire testing and issue full reports working alongside both your own electricians and your insurance.
Wiring schematics save time during fault finding and maintenance, therefore reducing expensive down time.
- We also carryout PAT testing, issuing a full report upon completion.
