Infrared thermography is one of the most cost-effective predictive maintenance technologies which are quickly, accurately available without interrupting the operations and locate problems in various types of systems before any failure. Electrical thermography is the most widely performed application of Infrared thermography. It is used virtually around the world to evaluate the condition of electrical systems and equipment. Thermal imaging can help someone to track the temperature at which any electrical motor is operating, which is crucial to the longevity of the motor. This article deals with the temperature measurements on an induction motor and describes the influence of parameters such as the relative humidity and the environmental temperature on the measured values. © 2006-2013 Asian Research Publishing Network (ARPN).
