“How often should electrical systems be thermographically inspected?” Historically, accepted industry practice has recommended that infrared inspections be performed annually; however, site specific conditions may dictate considerably shorter intervals for some equipment or facilities.
Easier Than A, B, C
When performing infrared inspections of electrical distribution systems, many people identify the individual phases of polyphase circuits as A, B, and C; others frequently use 1, 2, and 3.
