The Importance of Equipment Trending Analysis:

“The primary benefit of including a thermographic survey in a preventative maintenance program is the ability to monitor thermal trends over time. However, infrared reports often fall short, by not including necessary information required to understand historical trends. This information is necessary for the electrical equipment manufacturer to assist the customer with evaluating equipment operational concerns.”
 (Schneider Electric Data Bulletin – Infrared Thermographic Inspection Guidelines – 0110DB0302R6/04)

And insurance companies often ask before honoring a claim “can you, Mr. Customer, show us visual proof that you have been managing and maintaining your equipment properly over time?”  We give you that visual proof.
