Inspection Thermography and Earthing Test
Thermographic testing is a non-destructive test method that may be used to detect poor connections, unbalanced loads, deteriorated insulation, or other potential problems in energized electrical components. These problems may lead to excess power use, increased maintenance costs, or catastrophic equipment failure resulting in unscheduled service interruptions, equipment damage, or other problems.
THERMOGRAPHIC TESTING OF ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
A useful addition to a preventative maintenance program, Carelabs can carry out a thermographic scan and Thermographic Testing of all areas likely to be running too hot or too cold. The number one application for infrared thermography globally is electrical applications. 80% of electrical faults are not visible. Thermal imaging is the technique for making invisible infrared radiation visible. Thermal images capture fully radiometric infrared images using IR-Fusion® technology, photographic images and will be included in a report.
EARTH GROUND TESTERS
It is critical for facilities to have grounded electrical systems, so that in the event of a lightning strike or utility overvoltage, current will find a safe path to earth. To ensure a reliable connection to earth, the International Electrical Testing Association specifies ground electrode testing every three years.
Carelabs earth ground testers have been built to address the entire spectrum of ground testing methods from the basic to the most advanced. Our testers have been designed to be accurate, safe and easy to use. We provide quick and precise resistance measurements through several test methods: 3- and 4-pole Fall-of-Potential testing, selective testing, stakeless testing and 2-pole testing.
