Remote Thermal Sensing
By making it easy to detect heat anomalies, thermal cameras and infrared thermometers support preventive and predictive maintenance
Roger Mavrides General Tools & Instruments, Suzanne Shelley Precision Prose, Inc.
Rising temperatures and rapid or excessive heat buildup are useful markers for determining the operational health of many types of machinery and components that are used in a wide array of industrial and manufacturing settings. Because equipment malfunctions and abnormal or fault conditions in mechanical and electrical systems are often forewarned by a rise in temperature, the ability to gather and analyze temperature data in realtime can often help operators to both pinpoint existing performance-related issues and identify the onset of incipient problems. Remote or non-contact temperature-measurement devices, such as infrared thermal-imaging cameras and infrared thermometers (IRTs) allow useful temperature data to be easily gathered from remote locations and thus offer a useful alternative to direct-contact temperature sensors....
