Infrared thermography offers a solar panel evaluation system geared specifically for finding thermal exceptions, anomalies or defects such as:
- Short circuits
- Cracks in the cells
- Gas pockets
For solar cells we recommend that your preventive maintenance and quality control monitoring starts with the installation phase, followed by regular checkups. Installation Phase Inspections of solar panels eliminates or recognizes immediately manufacturing defects of impurities, gas pockets or cracked cells. Regular checkups help to maintain the solar panels’ operational functionality and contribute to an extended lifetime. Solar Panel Inspections using thermal imaging has proven itself to drastically improve an owner’s return on investment.
