The above image is an example of one of the faults found during a recent thermography survey. The cable and termination serving a tap-off unit was found to be operating at an elevated temperature.
A reducing temperature gradient can be noticed from the crimped termination, indicating a high resistance connection. Jaguar were able to rectify this issue at the earliest opportunity by replacing the lug and reterminating the cable.
Our extensive experience in maintaining critical environments means that we understand the importance of using predictive maintenance technology quickly, accurately and safely locate problems.
That’s why we carry out all thermography surveys in-house. Adam Nguyen works within our Technical Team and has been making his way across our portfolio to assist our customers in identifying any problems to prevent expensive downtime.
Potential electrical faults generate excessive heat, for example faulty components and loose, oxidised or corroded connections. Thermal Imaging can be used to detect these faults. The technique is particularly valuable where plant breakdown would critically affect a business, i.e. a computer equipment room. At a more general level, many office power distribution systems are becoming more critical with greater reliance being placed on secure, reliable supplies.
Thermal Imaging equipment also delivers a real value adding service, maximising energy efficiency within your building.
