Thermoscanning & Switchboard Inspections

Thermographic cameras can detect problems which are invisible to the naked eye, well before they progress into an electrical equipment failure, fire or potentially an explosion. Early detection of these potential faults is key and can save your company time and money by eliminating unexpected outages or disruptions. Check with your insurance company. They may offer a reduce premium if you undertake regular thermoscans.

JM Switchboards provides regular switchboard inspections and thermoscanning as part of their Maintenance Program. After all, when it comes to your electrical plant and equipment, there’s nothing more important than peace of mind.
