Periodic manual versus automated 24x7 with InfraSensing
There are several advantages to using infrared thermal imaging sensors mounted onto the infrared windows of switchgear instead of manual periodic thermography inspections:
Continuous monitoring: Infrared thermal imaging sensors can continuously monitor the switchgear, allowing for early detection of potential problems.
Increased safety: With continuous monitoring, there is no need for personnel to enter the switchgear room, which can be dangerous due to the presence of high voltage equipment.
Improved accuracy: Infrared thermal imaging sensors can provide more accurate temperature readings than manual inspections, which can lead to earlier detection of problems.
Cost savings: Continuous monitoring can result in cost savings, as it eliminates the need for periodic inspections and any repairs that may be needed as a result of those inspections.
Remote monitoring: With the ability to remotely monitor switchgear, you can alert the maintenance team to any issues before they become critical, this can save time and money.
In conclusion, replacing manual periodic thermography inspections of switchgear with infrared thermal imaging sensors mounted onto the infrared windows of switchgear is a smart investment for any industry. Not only does it increase safety and efficiency, but it also allows for 24x7 monitoring and eliminates the need for scheduled power shut downs. This is the perfect solution for companies looking to increase productivity and reduce costs.
