Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging

FICO provides a Thermal Imaging (Electrical/Mechanical Infra-Red “Hot Spot” Detection) service.

Through the use of Thermal Imaging FICO can enable businesses to be proactive in preventing potential and costly fires due to overloaded, worn, faulty or poorly connected electrical and/or mechanical components that may go undetected in a standard service inspection.

Using thermal imaging detection, FICO can carry out an infra-red thermal electrical inspection survey of all electrical/mechanical distribution of switchboards and other reticulation equipment.

Data is collected under normal load conditions without interruption to power. The data and photos are then collated into a concise and detailed Fault Analysis report itemizing issues of concern and making recommendations about items that need to be repaired.  These items are given a priority rating allowing the client to determine what actions need to be taken to facilitate budgeting and scheduling.

This Fault Analysis report is supplied in an electronic format for the client.

The benefits of Thermal Imaging to the business are a reduction in:

  • the likelihood of electrical fires
  • the incidence of power or system failures
  • less down time from unexpected maintenance issues due to emergency breakdowns
