Safe & Accurate Electrical Inspections with Thermography
Electrical asset inspection and maintenance is not just one of the most important tasks in a facility, but it is one of the most dangerous as well. The proper use of thermographic technology is vital to retrieving accurate data during an inspection to properly trend the health, performance, and condition of critical electrical assets. The process by which the data is collected must be focused on allowing the inspector to achieve accurate readings of the equipment, while at the same time providing a safe environment for the inspector to avoid the risks of electrocution and arc flash.

Switching Strategies: Moving to Condition Based Maintenance
Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.
