Why Use Infrared?

A picture says a thousand words; infrared thermography is the only diagnostic technology that lets you instantly visualize and verify thermal performance. FLIR's infrared cameras show you thermal problems, quantify them with precise non-contact temperature measurement, and document them automatically in seconds with professional easy-to-create IR reports.

Infrared for Predictive Maintenance

Nearly everything that uses or transmits power gets hot before it fails. Cost effective power management is critical to maintaining the reliability of your electrical and mechanical systems. And today, no one would argue that infrared thermography is one of the most effective proven predictive maintenance (PM) technology available to quickly, accurately and safely locate problems prior to failure. Finding and fixing a poor electrical connection before a component fails can save you the much greater costs associated with manufacturing downtime, production losses, power outages, fires and catastrophic failures.

Infrared Cameras and Software that Work Together

But using infrared images to find a problem is sometimes not enough. In fact, an infrared camera image without an accurate measurement says very little about the condition of an electrical connection or worn mechanical part. And, an IR survey without a simple, fast way to report and analyze inspection results provides no ability to make timely repair decision or locate and separate those 'hot spots' that can cause problems from those associated with equipment operating normally.

FLIR's infrared cameras and software not only quickly locate problems, their non-contact precision temperature measurement and analysis capabilities instantly deliver the answers you need to understand what repair action to take, and when.
