By visualizing the local temperature distribution on devices and components, thermal images enables the detection of faults in systems at an early stage. For example, electronic components or electrical systems can be monitored continuously or periodically by means of imaging thermography. Defective components or connections (e.g. short circuits or high transition resistances) are reliably detected by an atypical temperature signature. Thereby, the cause of the fault can be eliminated before systems fail or suffer irreparable damage.
Contactless inspection using thermal imaging cameras can replace costly manual measuring methods and allows system monitoring that is significantly more efficient and reliable. With continuous monitoring, thermal image data is evaluated directly and automatically and configured in such a way that an alarm is triggered in the event of a deviation. Now, intervention can be taken and the cause of the system error can be rectified, before the system fails.
