Surge suppressor

A device which is designed to protect electrical appliances from sudden rise or variation of voltage is called surge suppressor. It functions to regulate the supply voltage before it goes into the electrical appliance. This is done by either blocking or shorting to ground certain voltages which are unsafe or unsuitable to the electrical appliance [...]

Outlet surge suppressor

The outlets of surge suppressors are coupled with capacitors to maintain electrical signal in its desired rating, thereby providing noise reduction in settings where interference from other devices is experienced. Also, overload protection is present. Such overload protection is in a form of a reset switch – shutting down the system when a particular threshold [...]

Thermal imaging camera

Ordinary cameras form an image by means of visible light whereas thermal cameras form an image by means of infrared radiation. The latter are also known as simply infrared cameras or as FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared). These type of cameras operate in wavelengths of approximately 14,000 nm (14 µm) while visible light cameras are in [...]

Infrared thermal imaging for detecting Electrical and Mechanical faults

Thermal imaging can be applied to examine the transfer of infrared heat radiation from an object which, as a result gives way to identify thermal emissions of different surfaces, and displays a visual representation of temperature variations. Although this type of application could possibly presents potential problem areas thus needs to be addressed properly to [...]

Thermal imaging scope in the construction industry

Problems usually occur if difference in temperatures exists in the surface. Anomalies, or thermal patterns, can imply water damage (e. g. presence of molds), missing insulation, energy loss, electrical and duct work problems. One of the important services rendered to homeowners and Realtors are Home Warranty inspections. Through thermal scanning, construction defects which are not [...]
