Infrared thermography is a proven technology for detecting defects in electrical circuits that are under load. Thermal imaging can also be used to detect defective lightning arrestors that are leaking current to ground.
“Begin with the end in mind” is a frequent quotation from Stephen Covey’s best selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Applying this principle can have a dramatic impact on many things including an infrared inspection program.
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Put the horse before the cart.” When it comes to thermography, many people put the cart in front of the proverbial horse by buying infrared equipment before obtaining proper training.
