Leading Leicester electrician PB Ross have just purchased a Fluke Ti9 thermal imaging camera to help identify electrical hotspots which could prove dangerous in the future. The hand-held device, which includes a SD card reader (USB) – for downloading images on to computers – is a new service that PB Ross will be offering all current and future customers.
The Fluke Ti9 has a temperature range of -20 to +250 degrees C, with an accuracy of plus or minus 5%. It uses infrared radiation wavelengths to make pictures (as apposed to visible light with normal photographs). This is especially helpful when seeking heat sources in objects you cannot see directly, such as electrical wiring inside walls. By detecting any anomalous build-up of heat within wiring Leicester electrician PB Ross can warn customers of the danger and put things right. Failure to detect these heat build-ups can lead to electrical fires if not dealt with.
Use Leicester electrician PB Ross for electrical audits
Beyond detecting existing thermal problems, the equipment can be employed for electrical audits for insurance purposes. Increasingly insurers are demanding thermal imaging as part of an electricians report to ensure businesses are not harbouring electrical problems before insurance premiums are agreed. This use alone will justify the investment as more and more insurers follow suit with the need for thermal imaging evidence. We have no doubt that in the not so distant future all insurance quotes for businesses will be subject to an electrical audit with thermal imaging evidence.
If you’re about to seek new insurance you can get thermal imaging evidence to support your application from PB Ross.
