FLIR THERMAL CAMERA AND CLAMP METER PASS ELECTRICIAN’s TEST

flir feb 17 1When self-employed electrician Gary Fisher was given the opportunity to ‘road test’ a FLIR C2 thermal imaging camera and CM174 clamp meter, he saw it as a chance to see exactly how much value these advanced devices could add to his work.

In electrical installations, successful diagnosis of problems before they become a genuine danger is a real advantage. Among the devices best able to help facilitate this is a thermal imaging camera. Its speed and ease-of-use make it a must-have gadget for the electrical trade. At least that’s the theory, but what about in practice?

Gary Fisher carries out a wide range of electrical work, typically involving distribution boards, covering an area between his base in Milton Keynes, down the M1 corridor as far south as Harrow in northwest London. His father, now retired, started the business originally, which Gary joined after finishing school.
