Photovoltaic (PV) Infrared Scan Services
Defective cells in solar panels decrease the output, meaning the panel is not producing as much power as it could be. It is important to use infrared to detect a problem like this, because troubleshooting the cells one at a time is extremely time consuming, and costly. Thermal imaging can detect problems faster and from a distance.
Before installation of solar panels on commercial buildings, the structure's roof should have a complete thermographic inspection to detect any trapped moisture. The electrical system for the building should also be inspected for electrical faults such as loose connections, overloaded or imbalanced circuits, faulty breakers, damaged switches or any other hazardous condition.
