Introduction to IR for Electrical Applications

ElectricalPresented by Jay Bowen, the ITC
Date: Friday, January 24, 2014
Time: 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

Using thermal imaging to inspect electrical systems is a fast and easy way to locate failing electrical connections or overloads in circuits that not only contribute to inefficient operations, but can also lead to complete system failure and shutdown.

This webinar will provide an overview of how thermographers are using infrared to detect electrical faults early reducing downtime and saving money. Ultimately, with proper training and the right equipment, infrared technology can help you improve operations and make better maintenance decisions, especially when it is applied in electrical applications.

Introduction to IR for Building Systems

BuildingsPresented by Matt Schwoegler, the ITC
Date: Friday, February 7, 2014
Time: 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

Regardless of the season, the cost of conditioning a building is always a concern whether you are a homeowner or facility manager. Thermal imaging can detect areas of missing insulation and locate air leakage bypasses in structures that not only waste energy, but also increase the cost of operating a building. Additionally, IR can identify potential moisture and mold issues plus diagnose problems with HVAC, electrical and mechanical systems that are commonly found in buildings.

This webinar will introduce you to these applications while also explaining some of the science behind how the technology works.

IR Electrical Safety Basics

ir-electrical-safety-basics-course-largePresented by John Waggoner, the ITC
Date: Friday, February 28, 2014
Time: 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

Thermographical inspection of electrical systems requires components energized with sufficient loads in order for problems to appear. Additionally, since thermal imaging cannot see through electrical panels or covers, these need to be removed by qualified personnel so that the thermographer has direct line of sight. It is the combination of these two factors which expose any electrical thermographer to the potential of electrical shock or, far worse, an arc flash.

In this webinar we will cover the basics of electrical safety related to infrared thermography, including an important overview of how NFPA 70E applies to thermographers who inspect electrical systems.

Overview of Certification for Thermographers

Date: Friday, March 7, 2014
Time: 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

In today's competitive world, companies need qualified technicians who are proficient in the best practices of conducting infrared inspections. Getting certified and completing proper training and testing is one important aspect of that qualification process. Additionally, there may be industry standards, guidelines or protocols that thermographers must understand and follow when performing certain professional activities.

This webinar will present an overview of these and how being properly qualified is essential for one to be successful with the technology.

IR Basics for Home Inspectors

The Ultimate Infrared Handbook for Home Inspectors - Ramos_Page_14_Image_0001Presented by Matt Schwoegler, the ITC
Date: Friday, March 21, 2014
Time: 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern

In today's competitive world, companies need qualified technicians who are proficient in the best practices of conducting infrared inspections. Getting certified and completing proper thermography training and testing are important aspects of the qualification process. Additionally, there may be industry or company rules, guidelines, or quality standards that require certified personnel for certain professional activities. In some instances, these actions may also be regulated in national or international law, making certification compulsory.

In this webinar, learn what certification really means to the professional thermographer and how having the proper training, testing and experience is essential for being successful with the technology.
