Infrared Thermal Imaging is one of the most important field tests performed by our technicians. Finding issues in the module (“Hot Spots”) or wire terminations that cannot be seen with the naked eye prevents system downtime & power yield losses. Regular maintenance visits that include IR Thermal Imaging will ensure the safe and optimal operation of a PV plant.
IR Thermal Imaging is performed on PV modules, combiner boxes, fuse holders, breakers, conductor terminations & splice points. Upon completing thermal imaging on a site, technicians can review the images and perform corrective work immediately. Once an entire site has been analyzed by thermal imaging, the images are then processed in the manufacturer’s software for detailed, comprehensive reports that are delivered to clients for record keeping, equipment benchmarking, and data for warranty claims.
