Visual inspections

A visual inspection is a MUST for transformers.

These must be carried out at regular periodic intervals (e.g. annually).

Especially in the case of small transformers in the medium voltage range, which are rarely inspected by means of electrical measurements, the importance of this visual inspection increases.

It is practically the only procedure to make a statement about the condition of a transformer.

Visual inspections are often carried out by the operator's own personnel. Nevertheless, it can happen that this task has to be outsourced due to a lack of resources and know-how.

We are happy to assist you in taking over the visual inspection from monitoring the dates of the periodic intervals ,the performance of the inspection to the documentation of the results including recommendations at your disposal.
