Electrical IR Basics

Protect your Computer network with regular IR Surveys
Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on electrical equipment because excess heat on electrical apparatus indicates electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions. Before an electrical component fails, it heats up. Thermography is used to see the excess heat so that maintenance personnel can act to correct the a problem before the component fails and causes damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.

Computer equipment and related systems that should be inspected:

  • UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems
  • ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) systems
  • Main Switchgear systems
  • Computer and Server Systems
  • Generator systems
  • Battery systems
  • Cooling systems

CompuSCANIR™ services are specialized infrared P/PM inspections on the electrical and mechanical systems that support the uninterrupted operation of computer centers. CompuSCANIR™ thermographers specialize in the infrared inspection of the electrical and mechanical systems that support the continuous operation of these centers. Infrared thermography is used to perform P/PM inspections on electrical and mechanical systems equipment because excess heat electrical apparatus faults such as loose connections, damaged bearings, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty fuses and the like. Computer centers are often checked during “maintenance windows” or times designated by management when test are to be performed and maintenance activities can be safely carried out. Therefore, around the clock availability is an important component of Stockton’s success.
