Infrared is commonly used for electrical inspections. As electrical connections become loose, corroded or damaged it creates a resistance that can cause an increase in temperature. This increased temperature can then cause components to fail and potentially result in unplanned shutdowns, costly repairs and often injuries. In addition, the efficiency of an electrical grid becomes low prior to failure, thus energy is spent generating heat causing unnecessary use of energy,

increasing emitions and safety hazards. If left unchecked, heat can rise to a point were the connections melt and break the circuit. As a result fires may occur.
