5 Key Things to Consider when Using Ultrasound to Find Electrical Faults

April 18, 2017

Most electrical cabinets are not hermetically sealed. Scan your ultrasound detector around the panel sides and ventholes to detect discharges like arcing, tracking, and corona. Not all electrical discharge faults produce heat. Use ultrasound solutions to hear what your infrared camera cannot see. Electrical discharge activity is amplified by high humidity. When performing ultrasonic scans […]

Ultrasonic Signature can Provide early Warning of Mechanical Failure

February 21, 2017

Rotating equipment produces a sound (ultrasonic) signature during operation. This signature can be measured and trended over time. As the machine components begin to fail a change in the ultrasonic signature will occur. The change in sound level can be used to alarm that could be related to lubrication or bearing damage. A key factor […]
