Infrared Service Case Study

Infrared scan immediately identifies drastic difference in two service cable temperatures.  Current probes confirmed very unbalanced currents.


Image taken at the base of the utility pole showed ground at base of one of the two power conduit risers significantly warmer.  Induction heating due to lack of neutral in one of the risers was responsible for imbalance.  This situation would have been undetectable without an infrared survey.
