Feb. 22, 2013 - PRLog -- Electrical safety is everyone's concern, and it can be helped and promoted through the use of infrared imaging. United Infrared, Inc., (http://www.unitedinfrared.com) announces that their latest class, ElectricIR, still has two seats available for its March 4-6 class in Phoenix. Details are available on the electricir.com/training website, or by calling United Infrared's main phone number, 888-722-6447.

United Infrared utilizes infrared imagers (cameras) from all major manufacturers, such as FLIR, Testo, Fluke, Palmer-Wahl, and Soltec.

According to Greg Stockton, president of United Infrared, Inc., the class covers  electrical infrared, and its various applications, such as:

1.    Safety is #1 - Overview of the safety requirements for performing Electrical Infrared Imaging, such as:

2.    Why electrical components heat up

3.    How electrical components lose heat (heat transfer modes)

4.    Reflecting on emissivity

5.    Severity criteria considerations

6.    Existing severity criteria

7.    Direct & indirect measurements

8.    Electric load correction

9.    Electrical component types for IR survey

10.  Creating equipment list and setting priorities

11.  IR camera and support equipment

12.  Developing electrical IR survey procedure including IR safety survey

13.  Effective IR camera usage

14.  Focus, temperature range, working distance

15.  Thermal tuning

16.  Setting emissivity and Treflect

17.  Examples

18.  Mechanical Applications

a.    Why mechanical components heat up

b.    Severity criteria considerations

c.    Mechanical equipment types for IR survey

d.    Mechanical IR survey types, eg trending

e.    Developing mechanical IR survey procedure

ElectricIRâ„¢ Application Lab (In-Class)

"And that's just the first day!", according to Greg Stockton of United Infrared, and a long-time pioneer in the infrared (IR) industry. Stockton then added:

"The second day includes a review, particularly with regard to safety, discuss arc flash hazards and assessing them, and how to use personal protective equipment. Applications are for both residential and commercial.

"On Day 3, we then get into report writing, using images captured during the class demonstrations to write a basic report. We even discuss the differences in the reports required for some of the commercial applications.

"Of course, we also get into 'infrared windows' and thoroughly discuss the marketing aspects of an electrical thermography business.

"Follow that up with even more review, and then a final exam, and the course is quite complete."

This United Infrared's class is being held in Phoenix.  Other classes scheduled or planned include DataCentIR (data center IR applications), RoofScanIR, BlockWallScanIR, along with classes in moisture intrusion, energy efficiency.

United Infrared is also a leader in the field of using infrared scans (thermal imaging technology) in the equine industry (equineir.com).

Stockton further added: "Our biggest event of the year is our Thermal Imaging Conference (thermalimagingconference.com), June 3 thru 6th, in San Diego, CA. Thermographers from around the world are gathering for that one, and it promises to be the premiere happening in the thermography universe in 2013."

Immediately following the ElectricIR course is DataCentIR. For a quick look at it, check out this YouTube video:
