Powerpoint Engineering Ltd are the experts in the supply of Thermal Imaging Equipment (thermal imagers, infrared (IR) cameras) in Ireland. We also offer comprehensive Thermal Imaging Surveys, allowing clients to instantly verify thermal performance of industrial equipment or buildings.
We run regular scheduled Thermal Imaging Training Courses, ranging from our 1 Day ‘Introduction to Thermography’ Training Course to our 4 Day ‘Level 1 Thermal Imaging’ Certified Training Course and our 4-Day ‘Level 2 Infrared Thermography’ Certified Training Course. The feedback from the attendees has been very positive and you can click here to view a sample of our Client Testimonials from our 1 Day Training course.
We can arrange Level 2 Certification on both electrical and building applications if required. Contact us if you require further information.
We are a Registered Training Provider as awarded by Engineers Ireland for 2016.
Powerpoint Engineering Ltd are fully registered as a Level 3 Supplier with Achilles.
What is thermal imaging?
Thermal imaging (also called thermography) describes the way in which the human eye can see the infrared end of the spectrum. Thermal imaging technology (in the form of a thermal imaging camera) is used in applications such as renewable energies, building diagnostics, energy audits or home inspections, facility management and restoration jobs.
How does a thermal imaging camera work?
A thermal imaging camera (also known as an infrared camera, thermal imager or IR camera) works by producing thermal or heat pictures of equipment. It contains a very special lens, capable of focussing infrared light emitted by the objects in the thermal imaging camera’s line of view. This focused light is turned into a thermogram, which is a detailed temperature pattern. The thermogram is then translated into electric impulses, which in turn converts the impulses into data for the display on the thermal imager. The data is represented as various colours, depending on the infrared emission intensity.
THERMAL IMAGING BENEFITS
A thermal imaging survey involves capturing thermal images of electrical distribution equipment using a thermography camera. These images are analysed to identify faults which have the potential to cause equipment failure and damage to property. A report is generated that identifies all of the equipment surveyed together with detail of any faults found. Users take thermal images of key units at set intervals, and compare those images at each visit. Any new “hot spots” indicate problems that can now be investigated before they result in failure.
Thermal Imaging Surveys are non-intrusive, enabling inspections to be completed safely and efficiently, without interruption to your business operations.
Key thermal imaging benefits include:
- No shutdowns needed, as thermal images are best taken while equipment is operational
- Minimal safety risk, as thermal images are typically taken at a safe distance
- Thermal images can access components not otherwise measurable
- Thermal measurements help detect imminent failures in nearly all types of equipment
- A reduction in breakdown maintenance costs
- Thermal imaging is extremely fast and highly accurate
