How infrared cameras (IR) help in condition monitoring (CM)
Infrared imaging plays an essential function in predictive maintenance. The cameras monitor plant machinery or equipment to create thermal images that reveal hot spots. These hot spots help detect future malfunctions, overheating, machinery or facilities damage, and personnel injury. Repairs or maintenance can be performed at the safest and most cost-efficient time.
An essential condition for the safe operation of any electrical installation is the correct equipment selection. The maintenance of such equipment must follow established parameters in terms of heating evacuation in all operating modes and the current conducting parts that connect them. Heat transfer is also carried out in electrical installations from warm to cold areas in three ways: through conduction, convection, and radiation.Read more
