Time-based, open-panel electrical inspections are costly to a company and dangerous to the personnel conducting the inspection. Companies are adopting condition based maintenance strategies to overcome the anticipated shortage of skilled tradesmen in the future. 75% of qualified electricians are over the age of 45 and 35% are over the age of 55 and as retirement approaches, companies are struggling to backfill these positions. A condition based maintenance program utilizing the latest technologies ensure that critical data can be easily and routinely collected in a safe, economical and effective manner by personnel at any skill level.
