Electric IR - United Infrared Module

Learn how to use infrared thermography to perform preventive maintenance inspections on electrical equipment to locate electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and a wide range of other unwanted electrical conditions.

Learn how thermography is used to see the excess heat (resistance) so that problems can be found and maintenance personnel can act to correct them before the component fails, causing damage to the component, safety hazards and/or production downtime.  In addition, learn how to run and market your business for success. This is an intense 3-day course with several prerequisites (see below).
