Are you looking to Reduce Downtime, Increase Equipment Life, Reduce Repair and Insurance Costs and Increase Profits then a good Preventative Maintenance Program particularly of Electrical Systems and Components is critical.

Preventative maintenance of electrical systems and components is an important part of your company’s safety, facility and machine maintenance programs to identify potential problems prior to a catastrophic failure. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA 70B) and International Electrical Testing Agency (NETA) prominently recommend the use of infrared inspection in the testing and maintenance of electrical systems and components.

Before an electrical component burns up, it heats up!

SMC offers Thermal Imaging Service that provides a periodic inspection of key electrical systems identifying excess resistance on electrical systems and components indicating electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or in-balanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses, and a wide range of unwanted electrical conditions. Infrared Thermography is used to perform inspections by SMC Specialists for hotspots or irregularities in these Electrical Systems and Components.
