Thermal imaging records the concentration of radiation in the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum and converts it into a visible image. Today, thermal imaging is often the first choice in preventative maintenance and is one of the most non-intrusive, non–invasive and non-destructive diagnostic tools for predictive maintenance of a UPS.
The use of thermal imaging helps to quickly identify problems, allowing for safe, controlled shutdown. This helps eliminate any unplanned disturbances, prevents untimely failure and with regular diagnostics, can extend equipment life. Significant commercial and operational efficiencies can also be recognised with the correct and frequent use of thermal imaging.
