Frequently Asked Questions

Thermal imaging (also known as ‘Infrared Thermography’) uses heat-sensitive cameras to detect subtle differences in temperature. These cameras can detect temperature differences of less than 1ºC.

Originally designed for military use, thermal cameras are often seen used for search and rescue. Other applications include firefighters, who use the technology to see through smoke.

For non-contact measurement, thermal cameras can identify, capture and assess heat loss. This is used to inspect buildings, electrical equipment, rotating machinery and devices.

Thermal cameras cannot take accurate readings without adjustments. Factors such as reflectivity and emissivity must be changed to collect reliable information.

Accreditation verifies that a thermographer can:

  • Operate an infrared camera
  • Collect accurate temperature data
  • Create reliable thermal inspection reports

Our thermographers are accredited by both the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing and the Awarding Body of the Built Environment. In addition to this, we have PCN Category 2 and 3 thermographers who are approved by the UKTA to conduct BREEAM surveys.

iRed is CHAS Accredited, Cyber Essentials Tier 1 Certified, CAA Approved and ISO 9001:2015 Certified.

Having regular thermal surveys of your data centres can help by:

  • Identifying hidden problems early
  • Reducing risk of equipment and component degradation
  • Drastically reducing the likelihood of down-time
  • Verifying hot and cold aisle segregation
  • Thermally mapping your servers cooling capabilities
  • Finding damaged or inoperable server fans
