Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is conducting thermovision inspections across northern and central New Jersey.

JCP&L employees use thermographic cameras to detect potential problems on wires and other electrical equipment that cannot be observed during regular visual inspections. The high-tech cameras are used to capture infrared images of distribution lines exiting substations and fuses located on poles. The images are downloaded to a computer and reviewed. The infrared technology shows heat on a color scale, with brighter or “hot spots” indicating areas that could need repairs. Overall, 2,100 line miles will be inspected as part of this process.
