INSIGHT IR® by LayerZero® Provides Early Detection of Thermal Issues
In critical power distribution systems, a higher-than-normal rise in temperature can indicate a potential problem, such as a loose connection. Infrared cameras can be used to safely detect areas that are emmitting excessive heat, so that thermal issues can be proactively identified and corrected before they lead to major problems. Many facilities perform IR scanning as a predictative maintenance procedure on a regular basis, in an effort to detect early indications of component failures. INSIGHT IR™ is a thermal camera system for LayerZero products that is designed to continously monitor the temperatures of critical components, so that higher-than-normal temperature rises are detected as early-as-possible.
INSIGHT IR® is designed to provide early detection of thermal related issues, maximizing product reliability and reducing the probability of unexpected downtime. INSIGHT IR™ supports up to 16 cameras, is compatible with bolted connections and critical components, and works with all LayerZero products.
INSIGHT IR® continuously monitors the temperatures of electrical connections in critical facilities, to reduce unplanned maintenance costs and maximize product reliability.
INSIGHT IR® Generates Live Thermal Images of All Customer Connections
INSIGHT IR® generates and displays live thermal images of all customer connections, making it easy to identify and diagnose potential problems early on. This helps to reduce unplanned downtime and extend the lifespan of equipment. INSIGHT IR® images can be accessed on a local display or remotely, so that maintenance teams can monitor equipment even when they are not on site.
INSIGHT IR® also makes preventive maintenance easier by allowing customers to switch between different cameras to view the temperatures of bolted connections in real-time. This allows maintenance teams to quickly identify and prioritize any areas of concern. INSIGHT IR® can also be used to track trends and identify potential problems even before they become critical.
Controls to Customize Image Generation to Individual Preferences
Individual Phase Temperature Monitoring
Measurements of the INSIGHT IR® heatmap can be isolated by phase to make it easier to identify the specific location of potential problems. Isolating temperatures into "zones" allows users to view the filter temperatures by individual phases and components, making root cause analysis faster and easier. INSIGHT IR® calculates the average and thermal balance between phases, to allow users to quickly and quantitatively tell how much variability exists between the temperatures of each phase.
View Trends over a Period of Time with Temperature Timeline
The INSIGHT IR® Temperature Timeline displays a line graph of the minimum, average, and maximum of every "zone" for each camera. Isolating temperatures by "zones" allows users to view the filter temperatures by individual phases and components, making root cause analysis faster and easier.
Helpful Alarms To Find the Root Cause of Potential Problems
