Data Centers

Data centers are high consumers of electricity. Thermography is used to determine the effectiveness of cooling solutions, detect immienent failure of critical elecrical components, and condition of UPS equipment. Specialized data centers such as those used for cryptomining have extreme cooling requirements. Thermography can identify deficiencies in cooling for these special cases.

Thermography can play a significant role in improving data center operations by identifying potential issues, optimizing cooling efficiency, and enhancing overall reliability.


  • Optimize energy use by locating hotspots and temperature variations within the server racks and cooling infrastructure.
  • Determin ideal placement of cooling equipment, adjust airflow patterns, and identify areas of potential airflow blockage or insufficient cooling.
  • Improve cooling system efficiency, reduce energy consumption and ensure proper temperature regulation.
  • Identify pending failures of servers, power distribution units (PDUs), or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, reducing the risk of unexpected downtime and data loss.
  • Monitor complex electrical systems to maintain efficient and reliable operation through periodic checks of electrical panels, connections, and switchgear for hotspots or loose connections.
  • Mitigate risk of electrical fires by identifying potential fire hazards. Quickly locate overheating conditions that may lead to fires.
  • Identify energy waste and inefficient energy usage, such as equipment running at higher temperatures than necessary or energy leaks.
  • Employ Thermographic surveys during the planning phase of a data center to optimize layout, cooling infrastructure, and equipment placement.
