Increasing safety and reliability through continuous system monitoring
For many years now, portable thermal imaging cameras have been a reliable tool in condition-based and preventive maintenance of electrical distribution systems in low-, medium-, and high-voltage installations, where they are often used at periodic time intervals. Optimized maintenance concepts in this industry however more and more call for the continuous, stationary use of such cameras.
Increased energy loads on equipment which in some cases is quite old are the main cause of faults or complete failure of components. To prevent this, stationary thermographic systems are deployed in permanently critical locations and complete systems. In this way, maintenance jobs and procurement of materials become plannable. Furthermore, the safety and reliability of the overall equipment is increased and loss of production ore complete loss of systems due to a fire can be prevented.
