Electrical distribution board surveys are made easier and more accurate when using EDIS.  The EDIS Cloud and EDIS Mobile app makes it easy to capture and store the details, including images of electrical installations.  This allows you to create a useful survey record of the installation changes over time, including schedules, certificates and photographic proof.

Thermography surveys are safe and non-intrusive method of inspecting electrical installations. They can be used to identify potential problems, such as overheating or arcing, that could lead to a fire or other electrical hazard. Thermography can also be used to support risk assessments, which are used to determine the need for further inspection and testing.

An example of the survey results can be accessed via a QR code or via the EDIS Cloud, an example is shown below:

To use thermography with the EDIS Mobile app, you will need a thermal camera attachment for your mobile phone. These attachments typically cost between £80 and £200. Once you have a thermal camera attachment, you can use the EDIS Mobile app to capture thermal images and add them to your electrical certificates or distribution board records.

Using thermal images in conjunction with normal images can provide a more comprehensive inspection and testing regime. This can help you to identify potential problems early on and take steps to prevent them from causing a fire or other electrical hazard.

Here are some additional tips for using the EDIS Mobile app for images and photos:

  • Take multiple thermal images from different angles. This will help you to get a complete picture of the electrical installation.
  • Use the EDIS Mobile app to add notes to your thermal images. This will help you to remember what you saw and why it was important.

This will help you to identify and address potential problems early on, and prevent them from causing a fire or other electrical hazard.
