Infrared (IR) electrical system inspections are a vital and fundamental component of electrical system maintenance and building safety programs. Infrared (Thermographic) inspection of electrical equipment identifies excess heat and detects electrical issues such as loose connections, overloaded conductors (wires), unbalanced circuits, defective breakers, damaged switches, and a variety of other problematic and potentially hazardous electrical conditions. Maintenance and Facilities personnel utilize Infrared Inspection to: prevent unplanned outages; prevent arc flash events and fires; minimize damage to electrical systems; protect employees and save money. IR inspections can detect small, easily manageable deficiencies before they turn into disasters.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) generally recommends that infrared electrical system inspections should be performed annually, bi-annually or even more frequently. Virtually every building, process, service, design, and installation in the United States is affected by NFPA’s 275+ codes and standards. NFPA 70B (Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance) states that “a well-administered Electrical Preventative Maintenance Safety Program will reduce accidents, save lives, and minimize costly break downs and unplanned shutdowns of production equipment.” NFPA 70E is The Industry Standard that addresses and defines Electrical Safety in the workplace
Infrared electrical system inspections in Atlanta, GA, should be performed under normal conditions and load. Our inspections document all thermal problems detected and documents conditions (temperatures) at all equipment inspected, even if no deficiency was present.
