Electrical thermography – also known as thermal scanning or thermal testing – is the use of infrared scanning devices to detect unusually hot areas in electrical circuits.

Thermographic scanners show infrared heat radiation that cannot be seen with the naked eye. This allows technicians to identify thermal faults which, if not addressed, could lead to electrical equipment failure, fires, or explosions.

We can undertake thermographic scanning of your electrical equipment and circuits, in order to protect your staff, equipment, and facilities. These inspections are non-invasive and non-destructive – meaning there is no interference to the building’s power supply during a test – so they generally do not interfere with business operations.

Our technicians can thermally inspect a variety of electrical equipment, including:

  • Electrical switchboards
  • Transformers
  • Power factor correction (PFC) units
  • Motors
  • Mechanical plant
  • Meters
  • Fuses

All thermographic scanning undertaken by us is compliant with Australian standards AS ISO 18434.1:2014, (“Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines – Thermography General procedures”), AS ISO 18436.7:2014 (“Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines – Requirements for qualification and assessment of personnel Thermography”), and AS ISO 9712:2014, (“Non-destructive testing – Qualification and certification of NDT personnel”).
