Infrared Scanning

Infrared thermography is a valuable tool in determining the condition of electrical equipment. Basically all objects emit thermal energy, which can be viewed with a scanner, whose purpose is to convert this electromagnetic thermal energy radiated to electronic video signals. Results may be interpreted by obtaining a hard copy (photograph or CD) of the thermal image and determining temperatures at the suspect areas.  These temperatures can be compared to equipment thermal ratings and recommendations made.

Loose electrical connections produce heat signatures. Infrared analysis is a simple, cost-effective preventive maintenance measure. Potential electrical problems can be located and then repaired without any interruption of service. Annual inspections are an effective method of fire prevention and more often than not, required by insurers.

Infrared Scanning


This enables corrective action to be taken well in advance of any failure. Regular infrared inspections may also qualify for reduced insurance premiums.

  • Advantages:
  • Detection of failures
  • No downtime required
  • Recommendations for corrective action
  • Detailed customer report

Abnormal heat produced by electrical systems can indicate a potential problem. This may be a result of:

  • system overloads
  • loose connections
  • broken or oxidized wire strands
  • improper grounding
  • unbalanced loads
  • incorrectly adjusted equipment
  • issue with inductive heating
  • high resistance terminations caused by thermal cycling

As an Exell Power Services’ customer, you will receive a comprehensive report for every inspection which includes:

  • scan date and time
  • device temperature
  • a reference image
  • an infrared image
  • recommendations for corrective action

Our report may be customized as required, to include equipment photos, device designations, and more extensive and detailed temperature readings etc., as requested.
