At Ezzy R Electrics we are qualified in Thermal IR Imaging. We use the latest Infrared thermal imaging technology to ensure that the latest procedures and methods are employed to make you and your environment safe.

So why is it so important to use thermal IR imaging?

Prevention is better than cure. Thermal imaging allows you predict where a fault will occur before it happens. You see when there is a bad connection, or an overload problem there is a buildup of heat on the wiring or on the switches. By identifying this before it becomes faulty, you can take the necessary corrective action before something blows up. You may also be able to schedule the repairs without having unscheduled downtime.

What is Thermography?

Thermography is an inspection process using infrared imaging technology to measure and view temperature patterns emitted from switchboards.

How is the process of thermal IR imaging completed?

By using Infrared technology, in seconds any abnormal temperatures can be identified. Excess heat is often the first sign of trouble, so thermal imaging is a valuable non-invasive diagnostic tool used to predict early failures such as worn-out switchgear, current overload and burnt connections which can flag potential equipment failure before they have the chance to develop.

As a business operator, this process reduces unscheduled downtimes, costly repairs and prolongs the life of equipment.

  • It is recommended that thermal imaging inspections become part of your annual or bianual comprehensive preventative maintenance program. They provide baseline images for comparison to determine whether a hot spot is unusual and therefore requires repair.
  • Common practice by insurers today is often a requirement for companies and landlords to undertake thermal imaging testing. A thermal imaging report with recommendations and corrective work undertaken is becoming common for insurance policies to be approved.
  • If you have a new or re-modelled commercial building, or are in the process of installing or upgrading your commercial power system, a thermal imaging inspection will determine if the components and system have been properly installed.

For the past decade Ezzy R Electrics has specialised in responding to electrical emergencies, like switchboard fires. Today we can now prevent many of these emergencies, by delivering quality and cost-effective thermal imaging to both commercial and domestic clients.

Prevention is always best, so act now and get your switchboard and other devices assessed today.
