NFPA 70B 11.17.5

The Importance of NFPA 70B §11.17.5

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70B §11.17 recommends that every commercial and industrial building in the United States should undergo an infrared (IR) survey of its electrical systems at least once a year. Here are some recommended components and equipment for this survey:

Electrical panels




Motor control centers (MCCs)


Circuit breakers


Wiring and conduits

Utility substations, transformers, and feed poles

Main incoming services and plant main knives

Capacitor banks

Main switchboards and disconnects

Main distribution panels and main disconnects

Uninterruptible power supplies

Generator controls and transfer switches

Main I-Line panels

Lighting and receptacle panels

Disconnects and combination starters

Service disconnects for motors

Machine control panels

AHJ & Insurance Company Requirements

When it comes to compliance with NFPA thermal inspections, it’s essential to consider the requirements set forth by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) and insurance companies. These entities play a significant role in ensuring the safety and reliability of electrical systems in commercial and industrial buildings.

AHJ Requirements

AHJs are responsible for enforcing building codes, regulations, and standards within their jurisdiction. They may require compliance with NFPA guidelines, including NFPA 70B §11.17.5, as part of their inspection and permitting processes. Failure to meet AHJ requirements can result in penalties, fines, or even restrictions on occupancy.

Insurance Company Mandates

Insurance companies also play a crucial role in determining compliance with NFPA thermal inspections. Many insurance providers require property owners to conduct regular infrared electrical scans as a condition of coverage. Compliance with these mandates not only ensures insurance coverage but also demonstrates a commitment to safety and risk mitigation.

Analytics Process


Our Level II thermographers use an analytical process of visual comparison and qualitative analysis to interpret electrical anomalies detected during the infrared thermal inspections.

NFPA electrical compliance scans

Our certified technicians carefully examine thermal images captured during the inspection process, comparing similar components to detect irregularities such as temperature differentials, hotspots, or abnormalities in electrical systems.

Through this hands-on approach, we assess the severity and potential impact of these anomalies on the overall health and performance of the electrical system.

Our goal is to provide clients with detailed and actionable insights through our comprehensive inspection reports, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding maintenance, repairs, or system upgrades.
