New article: IR Cameras and Electrical Inspections

September 29th, 2010

Infrared cameras are not just for energy audits.  They can also be used for standard commercial and home inspections.  Because thermal imaging captures temperature differences and displays them on a gradient color scale – with hot spots shown as bright colors, and cool and wet spots shown as dark colors – using an IR camera for electrical inspections is useful for detecting and locating potentially hazardous conditions before they result in a failure or a dangerous electrical fire.  Read about this application in IR Cameras:  Electrical Inspections.
