Mechanical infrared is an effective tool for identifying wearing or overworked machinery. An entire production area can be scanned quickly and effectively. Infrared is non-contact, meaning if the operator can see the equipment, it can be scanned. This is an advantage in equipment that has limited or potentially dangerous access.
Electrical infrared is the best tool available for quickly troubleshooting industrial electrical equipment. This technology not only reduces failures but also works to greatly reduce the chance of electrical fire. Many insurance companies offer lower rates if an electrical infrared program is instituted.
