The Role of NFPA 70B §11.17.5

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70B §11.17 advises that every commercial and industrial building across the United States should undergo an annual infrared (IR) survey of its electrical systems. Here are some suggested components and equipment for this survey:

Electrical panels

Switches

Disconnects

Motors

Motor control centers (MCCs)

Transformers

Circuit breakers

Fuses

Wiring and conduits

Utility substations, transformers, and feed poles

Main incoming services and plant main knives

Capacitor banks

Main switchboards

Main distribution panels 

Uninterruptible power supplies

Generator controls and transfer switches

Main I-Line panels

Lighting and receptacle panels

Combination starters

Service disconnects for motors

Machine control panels

AHJ & Insurance Company Requirements

When it comes to ensuring compliance with NFPA thermal inspections, it’s crucial to consider the requirements outlined by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) and insurance companies. These entities play pivotal roles in upholding the safety and reliability standards of electrical systems in both commercial and industrial buildings.

AHJ Requirements

AHJs are tasked with enforcing building codes, regulations, and standards within their jurisdiction. They may mandate adherence to NFPA guidelines, such as NFPA 70B §11.17.5, as part of their inspection and permitting procedures. Non-compliance with AHJ regulations can lead to penalties, fines, or even restrictions on building occupancy.

Insurance Company Mandates

Insurance providers also hold significant influence over NFPA thermal inspection compliance. Many insurers require property owners to conduct regular infrared electrical scans to maintain coverage. Adhering to these mandates not only ensures insurance protection but also showcases a commitment to safety and risk management.

Analytics Process

 

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

NFPA electrical compliance scans

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

Using this approach, we evaluate the severity and potential impact of these anomalies on the overall health and performance of the electrical system.

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