What is switchboard thermal imaging?

Electrical faults cause heat at the fault site due to electrical resistance or excessive friction, so hot areas are indicators where there might be an electrical fault.

Thermal imaging is a non-invasive, technical diagnostic technique. It uses highly sensitive infrared cameras to accurately detect temperature variances, allowing expert interpretation to pinpoint the fault type, location, severity and any risk.

Heat map imagery shows changes in surface temperatures of electrical equipment and radiating temperatures in the surrounding area, providing a colour-coded visual. This is a valuable third pair of eyes providing our expert electricians additional insight into the health of your electrical system.

Importance of switchboard thermal imaging

Significant heat in a switchboard is an indicator of a failing or malfunctioning electrical system. Having it checked regularly provides reassurance that your electrical system is working safely and efficiently, which has multiple advantages for your business:

  • OHS and workplace safety
  • Fire prevention
  • Maintain reliable electricity supply
  • Early detection of equipment failure
  • Reduce downtime and revenue loss
  • Preserve and maintain assets
  • Meet insurance obligations
  • Effective risk management.

Peterson Power recommends incorporating switchboard thermal imaging into your electrical maintenance schedule annually, as a preventative measure for electrical faults. Without preventative measures in place, you might not know about an electrical fault until something serious happens.
