A thermographic imaging camera measures the thermal radiation of an object that is imperceptible to the human eye, and renders it visible. By identifying the smallest temperature differentials, irregularities in energy flow can be detected.
This has diverse applications in the field of electrical engineering, so that a thermographic inspection is generally for comprehensive inspections on electrical installations.
Your particular suitability proves thermography in the review of PV systems. Causes of loss limits of crop yield and safety-related defects can be identified during operation. Electrical faults can be detected before they cause damage and failures in your system.
Since the test is performed without contact and without interruption, an interruption of the plant operation is not required, so no downtime losses incurred.
Thermographic analysis thus constitute a suitable tool for the derivation of preventive maintenance measures. Error can be identified in time, already greater damage have occurred.
Thermography is also ideally suited to quickly grasp the technical condition for sale or purchase of a PV system. A variety of potential defects can be identified quickly, as interconnection error, damaged connections and contacts.
