Infrared Testing

Infrared Testing from Power Distribution Systems, LLC

Infrared electrical testing finds hot spots caused by defects in electrical connections and components. As a result, our infrared inspections are used to find areas of excess heat so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, or problems damage the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration. Therefore, a proper electrical infrared inspection finds and prevents problems before they cause damage to your personnel, equipment and facility.

Predictive Maintenance

The infrared testing of electrical installations falls under the classification of predictive maintenance fault finding. Above all, the purpose of our tests is to be able to predict an electrical fault before an element fails completely. We can get this due to the heat build-up of any electrical element under stress and predict that it will fail while it is still functional and appears normal to the naked eye or any other test equipment. A heat signature is identified with the use of an infrared camera. After that, pictures are then analyzed and put into a report so that they can be rectified before a breakdown occurs, preventing loss of production due to unplanned down time.

Planned Maintenance

Unexpected breakdowns in electrical supply can be incredibly inconvenient and costly. In addition to predictive maintenance, infrared electrical testing is a useful tool that can recognize stressed elements of your electrical systems before they break down or cause a fire. As a result, this gives you the opportunity to solve the problem as part of planned maintenance before it causes a serious problem.

Conditions detectable by an infrared inspection:

  • Loose/deteriorated connections
  • Overloads
  • Open circuits
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Inductive heating
  • Harmonics
  • Defective equipment

Benefits of Infrared Inspections:

  • Reduce unscheduled down time
  • Increase equipment life
  • No service interruption during inspection
  • Lower risks
  • Lower repair costs
  • Increase profits
  • Prevent catastrophic failures
  • Lower insurance premiums due to reduced losses
