Troubleshoot Breakdowns Before They Happen

Electrical / Mechanical Inspections

A solid predictive maintenance program can make the difference between meeting or missing production deadlines. So many companies rely on FLIR thermal imaging and Test & Measurement tools to survey and troubleshoot mechanical equipment and electrical systems. These tools allow technicians to inspect energized equipment safely—even at peak operation. Along with troubleshooting, thermal imaging cameras and non-contact measurement tools can also help optimize the production process and monitor quality control.

FLIR saves us from electrical hot spots failing, that would cause lots of down time. We repair spots identified by the IR test and repair before failure.

Thermal images for Electrical and Mechanical applicationsFind it, Diagnose it, Fix it

See Initial Signs of Failure

A thermal imaging camera allows you to quickly scan large areas, looking for hot spots on machinery or electrical systems that could indicate a potential problem.

Diagnose the Source of the Problem

With built-in meter features such as LoZ mode, and in-camera temperature analysis options, FLIR's range of professional tools helps you quickly diagnose problems and get to the job of fixing them.

Demonstrate that it's Repaired

Thermal images provide visual proof a fault existed and was properly repaired. Including these shots and measurement data in your reports will help to document your work and increase customer confidence.
