Beware High Voltage
The use of electrical and electronic devices and appliances has become a self-evident part of our everyday life.
The safety of these products still cannot be taken for granted. they can represent a serious source of danger. Marginal risks must be kept as low as possible to protect human life and our environment. This aim calls for a consequent safety philosophy that is rather difficult to carry out sometimes due to tough competition.
Profitability, safety and availability of a product are determined by a multitude of factors. These reach from design over production, quality securing systems, tests, sale and installation to the highly responsible surveillance and inspection.
We have wide-spread know-how in the field of electrical engineering also combining energy and plant technology, product safety and explosion protection.
Due to our cooperation with the other divisions within TÜV Austria we are able to offer optimal comprehensive advice and tests in simply every safety issue.
Let's take the challenge together!
Infrared Thermovision - Early Diagnosis of Weak Points
Substantial areas of application are:
Preventive maintenance - saving time and money:
Increased heat development in technical systems is mostly an unmistakeable sign for a looming or existing defect. This can be detected by means of the new thermal camera before a costly breakdown occurs.
Low voltage devices - saving money with regular tests:
Within low voltage installations the thermal camera reliably detects defective clamps, high contact resistance, overloaded cords and overheated installations as a result of heat build-ups. Thanks to digital photographic memory and exact evaluation regular tests can be carried out in a specific and cost-saving way.
High voltage devices - tests without switching off:
The thermal condition of high voltage installations can be assessed from a safe distance. By using a thermal camera it is no longer necessary to switch off the devices to be tested.
Locating leakage - without caousing damage:
Leakages have their "thermal fingerprints" on all kinds of pipes (heating, water, gas, district heating, etc.) and can therefore easily be detected by the camera.
It looks behind walls, ceilings and floors without caousing damage. By means of digital photographic memory you gain a complete documentation of the defects, that guarantees an exact localization.
Construction thermovision - supervision and redevelopment:
The thermal camera is also applied for finding sources of energy loss in buildings. The results provide a basis for redevelopment and for the effectiveness of the particular insulation.
Here are some of the specifications of TUV Austria's thermal camera:
- unrivalled infrared measuring system
- exact documentation computer supported analysis ensures
- digital filing for long-term observations
- employment individually tailored to our customer's requirements
