testo 883 convinces Cerdia: The pistol design thermal imager with testo SiteRecognition.
"Dedicated, agile, innovative" is the motto of Cerdia Produktions GmbH, which as a chemicals company is subject to strict legal requirements. For this reason, the firm is always open for solutions which promise to provide more security and efficiency. For example in the preventive maintenance of switching cabinets at their company headquarters in Freiburg, Germany. Since 2017, the service department has relied on the excellent thermal imager testo 885 with testo SiteRecognition technology. As a selected customer, Cerdia is happy to test the new pistol imager testo 883 with time-saving testo SiteRecognition technology before the official market launch – and they are thrilled. Best image quality and handy design. The perfect innovation for Cerdia.
With the intelligent measurement site recognition and automatic image management testo SiteRecognition, testo 885 revolutionizes the maintenance of the switching cabinets at Cerdia. First of all, each switching cabinet is set up in a database in the software and an individual code created, which is attached to the respective switching cabinet as an adhesive label. That significantly simplifies the thermographic testing: The code is scanned with the thermal imager, calling up the switching cabinet. All information as well as the subsequently recorded thermal images are stored in the database.
During synchronization with the testo IRSoft software, the images in the data base are automatically allocated to the correct measurement site. This allows, for example, the complete thermal image archive for a switching cabinet to be called up with one click. Manual image allocation is dispensed with, mistakes are eliminated. Yet testo IRSoft offer another advantage too: The thermal images can be analyzed in detail and reports created. The allocation of a thermal image to the respective measurement site is automatically carried over into the report.
Udo Moser summarizes: “We’re now conducting preventive maintenance at a different, high level. Our success proves us right. We have almost no highly urgent thermal issues any more.” Preventive maintenance at Cerdia today means: Scanning codes and saving time. testo SiteRecognition does the rest. Although the testo 885 has absolutely proven itself in daily practice, there is a wish for an additional, pistol design thermal imager for fast testing. In 2021, it’s ready.
"Since we started using testo SiteRecognition, we’re saving several hours of work on our just under 1,900 switching cabinets."
Udo Moser, Service and maintenance Cerdia Produktions GmbH
