An Insight into Thermal Imaging.

Defected Electrical Connections – Explained

Defected connections make up the majority of electrical related issues identified with thermography.  In a distribution panel each connection and fuse has a very small resistance. When current passes through a circuit it's components heat up. As a connection...

Electrical Induction Explained.

Sometimes with electricity we get inducted heat (induction). Induction can take place on metalwork exposed to changing magnetic fields, for example generators or cable entry plates. It is a result of the location of the metal and its proximity to electricity. It is...

Colour Palette’s, so much choice!

A thermal camera (microbolometer) detects infrared energy and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image, allowing us to perform temperature calculations. Thermal cameras do not detect colour because the wavelength that...

Residential Heating Systems

Thermal Imaging cameras provide us with an image of temperature distribution on a surface or object. This is hugely useful when installing or maintaining heating systems, from a commercial to a domestic level. You can pinpoint any irregularities in temperature...

A thought on image interpretation!

Thermal imaging cameras translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light to allow us to analyse an object or scene. They provide us with an image of temperature distribution on a surface or object. They can be used for immediate diagnosis or processed through...

Resolution and sensitivity for electrical.

Overheating can damage electrical circuit components and can cause fire, explosion and injury. The potential catastrophic consequences of electrical system failure and hazards must be avoided at all costs. Predictive maintenance (PdM) inspections on electrical systems...
