What is an Infrared Electrical Inspection?

An infrared inspection is a diagnostic tool that uses a thermographic camera in order to capture the infrared radiation emitted by electrical components of utility structures. Our infrared cameras will detect and record temperature variance across the surface of equipment, connection and structure. All the while creating a thermographic image or thermal map that will identify hotspots and help prevent electrical failures, fires, or power interruptions. By turning to a commercial infrared electrical inspection, you will be safeguarding your building or office. It is a great form of maintenance that will save you money down the line. If we do spot any problems, we will spot them before they are too troublesome.

A properly executed infrared inspection can help electrical utilities and perform the following functions:

  • identify any overheating equipment
  • spot defective equipment
  • reduce potential outages and catastrophic failures
  • limit potential damage to equipment
  • reduce emergencies for equipment
  • prioritize necessary repair work
  • avoid costly shutdowns
  • improve power quality by identifying any poor connections
  • meet regulatory compliance

With our high-powered tools, we can assist you with many electrical issues you may be experiencing.

Common Infrared Inspection Applications

An infrared inspection is commonly needed for commercial buildings and facilities and utilize the same technology you will find in military, aerospace and medical applications. These infrared inspections are especially helpful in locating potential problems, like electrical hazards, before they get out of control and cost you more money to fix. An infrared inspection can assist with environmental and building concerns and can greatly reduce damage and repair costs.

Here are some common infrared thermal inspection applications:

  • Electrical system and component
  • HVAC component scans
  • Motors, bearing, evaporative coils
  • Energy audits
  • Heating systems
  • Material defect scans
  • Air infiltration & heat loss inspection
  • Water and moisture intrusion 
  • Thermal insulation inspection
  • Structural component thermal inspection

An infrared inspection is an invaluable tool for many commercial building and facility owners. It will get to the bottom of your electrical issues without the need for invasive methods. Due to our years of experience, we can assist with your electrical needs with our state-of-the-art, high-resolution technology and training.

Where are Infrared Inspections Performed?

There are various spots to perform these sorts of inspections in order to get the best results for the electrical equipment. Here are the common spots where infrared inspections are performed.

Distribution System

The distribution system includes transformers, splices, air switches, busses, connectors, insulators, regulators, voltage regulators, switchgear, arrestors, reclosers, capacitor banks, solid disconnects, fused disconnects, and vaults.

Transmission System

This includes dead-end sleeves, splice sleeve connectors and potential connection failures due to increasing load.


The substations include breakers, switches, exterior cooling fins, and lightning arrestors.
