More than 300 million electric motors are used in infrastructure, large buildings, and industry globally. These motors account for about 2/3rds of the industrial power consumption. Electricity is required in almost all areas of the plant to provide the driving force that either operates the equipment that produces the products or provides the services that the plant’s equipment was built to perform..

While infrared is one of the most versatile of condition monitoring tools, we often fail to utilize it to its full potential. We know infrared is a key technology for all levels of electrical applications but when establishing condition monitoring programs, we may not realize what a great support technology it is for a variety of mechanical applications....
