Reduce Electrical Danger with Infrared Technology

By allowing inspections outside the danger zone, workers can stay out of harm’s way while reducing costly downtime.

One of the biggest advantages of IR tools for electricians is that — because the devices are noncontact — you can inspect equipment while it’s running while keeping a safe distance.
