Data Center Infrared Scans

A data center infrared scan is intended to identify problems within electrical components and systems where heat anomalous could cause catastrophic failure or expensive maintenance. Because these infrared scans are non-invasive, normal operations don’t have to be suspended to perform the survey. The benefits of a data center scan include increased reliability, reduced maintenance expense, and the subsequent gains in productivity that come from avoiding system-wide shutdowns.

  • Data Center Infrared Scans identify heat anomalies within the system before they become critical
  • Reducing maintenance costs and expenses associated with data system failure ultimately save you money
  • A comprehensive report including visual imagery are included with every data center scan
  • Infrared Technologies has more than 30 years of experience that we bring to our data center solutions
  • We focus on quality customer care to develop long-term business relationships

How Data Center Infrared Scans Can Benefit Your Business

Data centers generate heat that is released using fans or ventilation. A number of hidden issues can cause a buildup of heat that could pose a threat to the entire system, and many of these issues are undetectable by traditional scans.

Infrared scans detect area within electrical components and systems where heat buildup indicates a potential issue. Our detailed scan includes a digital or hard-copy report with photographs that identify these problems areas so they can be addressed before the system is compromised.

Common areas within a data center that cause buildups of heat include:

  • Loose connections
  • Corrosion
  • Misalignment of components
  • Overloads

Emergency repairs not only cost a fortune in their own right, but system-wide outages could interrupt your business for hours or even days. Reducing the threat of data center failure and maintenance costs by identifying emerging problems in their infancy, not only saves you money but increases productivity and efficiency.

How Often Should I Schedule An Infrared Scan Of My Data Center?
As a general rule of thumb, data center scans should be performed as part of your general maintenance program. Annual scans may suffice for a smaller operation, but larger businesses may want to schedule scans more frequently. The non-invasive nature of infrared Thermography makes it possible to perform data center scans when it’s most convenient for you. Our infrared experts can help you develop a customized scanning schedule that acknowledges your needs and budget.
