Why Inspect?

Thermal scanning of electrical systems (IR Survey) is a vital practice for identifying electrical faults by measuring temperature through the analysis of infrared radiation. If faulty equipment can be identified at an early stage, the risk of power interruptions and fire hazards can be reduced.


Precise pinpointing of problems minimizes the amount of time required for repair and preventative maintenance.


What Causes Hot Spots?

  • Conductor resistance

  • Loose or corroded connections

  • Malfunction of electrical components

What to Inspect?

Magna IV Engineering can scan your entire electrical installation or any portion of it.

  • Motor Control Centers (MCCs)

  • Switchgear

  • Disconnects

  • Distribution Panels

  • Junction Boxes

  • Low Voltage Terminations

  • Motors

  • Transformers

  • Medium Voltage Equipment (When safely accessible via IR Windows)

  • Roof tops

  • Conductors

  • Contactors

  • Fuses

Non-Invasive Preventative Maintenance

Infrared Inspections are conducted under normal operating conditions with no interruption to service. Magna IV Engineering uses sophisticated IR cameras that provide the most reliable results. 
Our NETA-certified personnel will open electrical panels during the scan, and are trained to perform this work in a safe and efficient manner.

Reporting Details

Following the survey, you will receive an easy-to-understand report explaining the exact nature of any problems with their location and severity, including:

  • Color thermograms and digital  photographs of the electrical system, showing any anomolies

  • A detailed description of any faulty equipment, including identification, location, component type and the potential problem

  • The temperature of the normal and overheated components, identifying temperatures which may cause problems
