FLIR Systems Australia  offers a comprehensive range of thermal imaging cameras designed for predictive and preventative maintenance in buildings.
Business owners are increasingly required to provide thermal switchboard survey reports to insurance companies as part of their commercial premises fire risk assessment. Thermal survey switchboard reports have become a valuable business document that can lower insurance premiums and help businesses save money.

A thermal imaging camera detects faults by sensing elevated heat originating from the problem area. These faults, normally undetected by the naked eye may be caused by anything ranging from a loose connection on a circuit breaker or an over current problem on a circuit to a loose screw.
Thermal imaging surveys include both infrared and visual images to provide those without electrical knowledge, a better understanding of the problem and its implications. The annual switchboard and electrical distribution system thermography surveys give facility managers a vastly improved picture of the condition of their assets leading to better asset-related business decisions.
At the forefront of switchboard surveys, FLIR thermal imaging cameras allow inspectors to see hot spots, which are generally traced to a high resistance connection with multiple causes of failure.
Key benefits of FLIR thermal imaging cameras:

  • Thermography surveys can be completed with no interruption to business operations
  • Detection of hot spots allows faults to be remedied before they become a problem
  • Predictive maintenance reports can be substantiated with an IR image accompanied by a visual image
  • Electrical systems reporting for customers and insurance companies
  • Scheduling repairs to fix potential problems before they become costly failures
  • Cost savings from reduced breakdown maintenance and lost production downtime
  • Early stage fault detection enables remedial work to be planned around business operations
  • Cost of remedial works on faults detected early is far less than complete equipment failure
FLIR infrared cameras

  • FLIR i3 produces snapshots of temperature differences equal to 3,600 readouts from a single spotmeter with the i5 and i7 producing even more
  • FLIR E-Series extends performance and affordability with features such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, 3.5” touchscreen and iPhone/iPad App
  • FLIR T-Series includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connectivity, 4.3” touchscreen and iPhone/iPad App
  • A-Series can be installed almost anywhere to monitor critical equipment and automation systems
  • FLIR’s GF-Series optical gas detection cameras detects gas leaks quickly, accurately and safely without shutting systems down for inspection
  • FLIR IR Windows offers a safer and more efficient way of carrying out electrical infrared inspections of live components and reducing arc flash triggers
